    Starting this thread to post "wishes" for future updates for BYC. I'm hoping that we can post ideas that they would like in future updates so they'll all be listed in one place and easy to find.

    Moderators -
    Not sure if there is already a thread for this. I was not able to find one, but if I've overlooked it, please direct me and we can delete this thread and join the other!

    Some wish items from me to start:

    -Option for Email notification if someone @mentions me.

    -Number of unread posts listed in the watched threads/forums list. Would love it if it looks much like the old "subscriptions" in the former byc.

    The option for someone mentioning you in a thread is already here.
    Look under ALERT PREFERENCES :

    yep...thanks for trying though. I know there is alert, just no email notification option that I can find. I really like to get email on those since folks usually mention you when they'd like a quick response.

    Sort of, lol. Sometimes I find something that I will want to reference later. With the old platform I would just PM myself the info, but can't do that with the new platform.

    Another wish:

    Would like to see who's currently viewing the thread like we had on the old site.
