feeds versus email (notification)
moe said: @ichigo we could start a whole new thread on that subject, i have a pretty strong opinion on that. :) i don't want to get too far offtopic, so let me just make a few short points (further discussion maybe really in another thread or by e-mail?): - rss/atom, despite being "the best we have now" is broken by design. "push" is not supposed to work that way. everytime you query the feed a little forum server suffers. - less tech-savvy users don't even know what rss or atom is and will just *shrug* - all feed-aggregators work differently. many will not let you comfortably monitor individual threads inside one big feed by design (i use rawdog and i like it). - i don't want to pull up $rssreader and subscribe/setup a filter-rule everytime i post to a thread on forum x or y. a simple "notify me"-checkbox is less hassle. - e-mail is really convinient (i can just file all notifies into a folder and process later) ok, this got longer than i wanted. apologize :)
