Quote that advice the quoted user

Post by Ideas Bot » Sun Nov 17, 2013 4:20 am

What about to change just a little bit the behavior for the Quote function as following:
once the post is submitted the board advises the quoted user that someone had quoted him/her.
So the quoted one can respond to the interlocutor as soon as possible.
It is some kind of automatic function similar to "Subscribe topic" but the differences are:

"Subscribe topic" function sends an advice by email if a new post is submitted into the whole topic the user is following.
My "Advise me if someone quoted me" function sends an advice only if someone quoted me...

[Well... it was pretty clear ;) ]

Could be the admin to choose to allow this board behavior on the basis of permission and of course it has to be the user to activate for him/her self that function and choose which topics and how it works: activate or not the email notifications for example or just to have a list of quotes into the board itself.

Could be present one further option that allows the user to activate or not some kind of "automatic management" of such notifications. It means that every time a user is quoted everywhere in the board he/she receives a notify of it, even if the user has not specifically subscribed that topic.

That seems rather redundant, if the user wanted notifications they could subscribe to the topic...and it's already been suggested.

And if someone write something at the attention of a certain user, quoting it, but the user forgot to bookmark or subscribe that specific topic?
As you know subscribing and bookmarking is not automatic when a user respond to a topic but implies an action of the user itself. Also a user that subscribed and bookmarked a topic sees that there are new responses even if he is not directly quoted in the response. In this scenario "quote that notify the quoted user" is an "intermediate" and more correct feature to achieve this aim because the user is noticed only if he is cited / quoted directly. So it appears to me like an optimization of the board.

Well... yep... in practice if a user quotes another a message (email or just PM will be a user or admin choice) is send to the quoted user so he is notified that some one is talking with and the quoted / notified user could respond as soon as possible.

  1. You seem to misunderstand the term "advice".
  2. It's not that easy to recognize quotes in the first place (it would require to parse the whole posting to find QUOTE tags and then extract the quotation reference - if any at all - and then make sure it's not a nested quote) - and even then you're aware that the quotation reference can be of any text?
  3. How are quote notifications signaled and reset? Once per topic until that topic is visited?
  4. When should quote notifications trigger at all? Only when submitting a new post or also when a post is edited?
  5. What about quotes in PMs? Or signatures?

C'mon people, obviously English isn't his first language and he meant notify.

Other than that, Amigo is right, it's very complicated and prone to bugs, not to mention superfluous imho.

A simple reagular expression - no big deal
make sure it's not a nested quote
dito, you just parse the first level
then you're aware that the quotation reference can be of any text?
Just a 1:1 match (maybe case insensitive) to the username not a big thing
When should quote notifications trigger at all? Only when submitting a new post or also when a post is edited?
How are quote notifications signaled and reset? Once per topic until that topic is visited?
Just call the method in posting.php if a new post is done.
What about quotes in PMs? Or signatures?
Signatures and PMs are nonsense. No need to notify here...

AJ,
Ops :oops: You're right. I'm sorry: I meant "notify", thank you for notifying me, I corrected my mistake.
But I cannot correct the original idea post but I corrected every other post...

No, he wants a notification if he's "quoted" not the silly twitter @user thing. I still think it's unneeded, since any user that wants to be notified if they're quoted will subscribe to all topics that he/she posts in by default.

I like the quoted one better than the twit one any day. I find @user annoying outside of twitter.
