I was very happy with the upgrades to the site and the new "Follow User" feature as that is something I wish the site had when I first joined. Curious as to what everyone else thinks. Are you following people now? Do you like the feature? I ask because as much as I like it, I don't like it. Here is why:
Pros - If I get busy and am away from the site for a bit, I no longer miss seeing cakes that were posted in that time by users I was trying to follow before it was actually a feature. I don't miss catching forum posts like FNCC that I regularly participate in.
Cons - Being notified every time someone you follow makes a comment. If it's a forum post I am following, that is great but I don't like being notified every time a user I follow comments on cake. It is a crazy number of notifications a day to both my email and on the site. Does this annoy anyone else or is it just me?
agreed! the alert overload is annoying!
btw - love your gallery!
I'm sorry @kstevens but I'm going to have to stop following you...
I'm now getting alerts every time ANYONE posts to your latest FNCC conversation, https://www.cakecentral.com/forum/t/833548/friday-night-cake-club-010717/#post_7672609
I'm not following this conversation, but I'm guessing that because I'm following you, and you 'started' the conversation that I've somehow been linked to it...???
fyi @Jackie something is amiss.
@virago I understand. Your reason to stop following me is exactly why I started this thread. The alerts quickly become exhausting!!
@Jackie can something please be done about the alerts? By following someone I don't need to know every time they make a comment on a cake or take part in a forum I'm not following. I think others may feel the same way.
