if they do not wish to do that, then you should not spam them with a bunch of emails trying to get them to visit.
let people make their own choices.
Agreed, so in the UCP, instead of just having the Notify me upon replies by default
option, there should be a secondary option (radio buttons, drop-down list, whatever) with at least these options:
- Notify me on every new post
- Notify me on first new post since last visit to topic
I also think a check box option of Include post content
would be useful. If people want to use the forums as a mailing list surrogate, why not let them?
For simplicity, the Admin should be able to choose those defaults, but the users could override them to choose their levels of spam.
