    Default Forum functionality question.

    Is there a way to track (subscribe to) a user? I would like a notice any time specific users make posts.

    You can subscribe to a thread, but that doesn't do what I need.

    The best solution I currently have is:
    1. Add the forum user as a contact.
    2. Navigate to Contact / Friend list.
    3. Click on a contact to bring up their profile.
    4. Click "Find all posts" to view all their posts.

    It would be awesome to be able to subscribe to a user. This would make it easy to see what the admins and devs are saying.

    Should there be something like a technical/website/forum/support category? Everything seems bundled into general right now.

    I know SMF has this, but not to sure about vBulletin. This isn't something they can just throw into the original source code of the forum, so if its not here, it probably won't be.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah, that is not something you could really tag on very easily. A bummer if vBulletin doesn't have it.

    I've been trying to write a forum tracker for these forums... but I can't get the authentication working properly for vBulletin 4. I've got working ones running for the Age of Conan and The Secret World forums

    and

    it'd be awesome if I could get one going here too, but alas... authentication issues.

    Since we are on the forum subject.. would be great if the boards didn't boot you every 20 minutes, so you have to relog.. I am used to have forum page open all the time and just refresh it time to time :/

    A "latest posts" would be nice.

    Yeah, the session time is really short and the "remember me" option doesn't seem to be working.

    I just bumped the very last thread on the very last page due to being bored. Enjoy.
