I like these forums. Are there going to be new features, such as your own account, your own profile, notifications for new messages, etc.?

Over the years there were always new features for the forums. I'll think again about email notifications, so far I didn't implement it because I didn't want to send too many mails... but I could ponder it again, e.g. Google App Engine allows me to send 2000 per day (I'm already using it for another service though). Mails sent from this server itself (1&1/ former Schlund) will often not make it to the inbox for some reasons, whereas Google App Engine-sent mails will...

Simple is sexy :)

Please, do not change the "account" system that works better that I thought...

the "account" system is super!

But an optional notification would be sometimes very nice :)

In the past I used the free WebMon 1.0, which is for automatic monitoring for the changes for web documents you define in that application. Nowadays, I have been using' private links to save URLs for my blog comments (they are private as no-one probably cares about monitoring them except myself).

By the way, Google Groups has favorites, so if your email service provider (if any) is having problems, people could simply log in to their accounts (if enough people are interested and if you have happen to have the spare time to do so) and look at their favorites to see if there have been any changes to their discussions. People here seem to like having no accounts, so I'm not trying to force any major changes (like I even could or would).

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
