Another little techy tweak request:
I request a “Follow Topic” button / “Mute” button option right in front of the list of forums in each Club. I want to be able to scroll down the topics, hitting the follow topic button as I scroll, and continue scrolling and hitting follow buttons until I’ve gone through the list. THEN, I want to come back, open them up and start reading forum posts.
Currently, I can’t do that. If there are twenty forums on the first page, the time it takes me to open one and hit the follow button and come back and repeat the process takes entirely too long and its too cumbersome.
What I do instead is get stuck enjoying myself with all that someone’s posted in the first forum I open. Then I start getting sidetracked, following links offsite, sometimes never returning except to turn my computer off.
Sometimes, I never get past the first few forums. Which is great, but I’m missing out on reading and replying to posts in forums that I never get to see before “poof” they’re gone.
If you add a button, I would be on the follow list and I’m thinking that means it would message my onsite inbox so I’ll later be reminded that I had an interest in that forum, opening it up then, and encouraging my increased participation and networking with more people.
Just my thoughts, but I reeeeeeeeeally would like those Follow Buttons along side the Forum Titles. Pretty please?
The advantage to SME is that it would help keep readers onsite longer and reading material that they had wanted to read but had just forgotten about. A little internal reminder system. And, of course, I know yall know that keeping readers onsite, engaged, and interacting only leads to better rankings, conversions, and profits to SME.
Just my thoughts…
