If possible, having a follow button on members pages, that then allows us to be notified of when that user makes a new post. For example, if I see a user who posts a world in the World Showcase and I really like their world, I could “follow” them and be notified if they post more worlds. Similarly if someone shares an amazing guide in the tutorials section, I could “follow” them to be notified if they post more guides.
Although I believe this could be useful, I do have two concerns:
- I would be worried about abuse of this feature, but more importantly…
- I don’t believe Discourse offers that as vanilla functionality.
Reason 1 isn’t as strong as 2, as you can always search for posts by a user. I’ll look into it, but from what I understand I don’t believe it is possible without an additional plugin, which we’re not going to expand on right now.
ahh makes sense, well maybe a future feature then
