I noticed I do not get notified when someone posts on my blog. I would like to read the comments on the blogs I submit very much.

What are your opinions?

I didn't put this in the supporter forum..because..I want staff to read it? Sorry, I am half-asleep. ;;

I want it to happen, too. (as my thread here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=193493) shows) and it would be cool. Also, if our subscribed blogs could get notifications (not e-mail) that would be nice too.

I need to stop making threads when I am passing out o.o;

But, yay, support~

I support this. Not that anyone really comments on my blogs anymore. D:
But, it'd be nice to have.

Then there are email notifications which is more of a nuisance. It just fills up your inbox (in my case, spam box) with notifications but you have no way of knowing they're there unless you have a space-taking toolbar or a certain messenger. ;;

Yay~ More support~

I think it would be a nice little feature, and it would stop me from having to check my blog for comments all the time, but it's not a top priority in my eyes.

I don't see any harm in having a PC notification system for blogs (I'd rather not have to check my email just to see if my blog was commented on).

I believe this has come up before. :( I forget. D:

But, I do support this as well. It would be helpful to get a notification for blog comments.

But what about the popular blog people? Their notification box would get fatter than Wal-mart and Walt Disney combined 0.o'

It should be adjustable to be on or off if this is done.

It's not like they have to read all of them. They just have to go to their blog for a second to get all the notifications all away.

That very same thing applies to staff and their VMs/PMs. If you get a lot of VMs all at once and you don't want to reply, all you have to do is load your profile then leave.

I support this but like others have stated, I think people would be getting too many notifications if they had a popular blog. I mean, some blogs get 20+ comments in minutes. :[

My above post negates that.

Since when did blogs become popular here? D:

Some of them are major popular. Especially blogs about ranting/debating which people seem to be posting more now.

And what if they visited their blog, then left, then got like, 10 more? They'd have to go back and forth.

They don't have to get rid of the notifications before doing anything else.

Yeah but when they do get rid of the notifications then more could just keep coming and it'd get hectic. Still, I agree.

That could be said for visitor messages, though. There happens to be a notification for them and some people can get a mass load of them moment after moment, after visiting their own profile for a brief moment, all notifications involving VMs would disappear, though they may just as well keep coming. This has happened to me various times in the past and I'm not really put off by that; but VM notifications remain regardless of that, so I personally believe that point is a tad bit flimsy.

I always liked the thought of blog comment notifications, at times I actually forget to look at commentary and have to be bothered to check myself, but to actually acknowledge first hand that somebody commented with a notification actually makes me feel kinda good.

I'm surprised Audy hasn't posted here yet as to whether or not blog notifications can be done or not.

Hmmm, I guess it could work to have something like that in the blog system. It doesn't matter to me because I check my blog pretty much everyday. And I can see someone comment on it, so yeah. It will work for everyone else, but for me...nah. But do whatever you wish. I turned off e-mail notifications because it causes a lot of messages in my inbox and that is a big mess to clean up.

I am all for the idea of this, but it doesn't concern me.

That, pretty much. xD

I've always wanted notifications for blog comments. Even if certain people on here DO get 90384 comments in ten minutes, at least.. they'd feel loved? XD; I dunno, but being notified would be awesome. I know sometimes people comment on older blog enteries, I occasionally check my older enteries to find that they have unread comments, and I'm like.. "... D; whoops.."

Damn, I thought this was on since you replied so quickly D;
It would still be nice to get noticed when you get someone to comment on your blog, but there should be a limit to how old the blog must be for it to count as a notification.
Eg. Break. commenting on all of Beachy's blogs when blog X is just too old and doesn't matter any more. But I digress.

Hmm...I dunno, I get the feeling that it would be quite amusing for somebody to see that a very old blog entry of theirs managed to get a comment, but I suppose there could be a toggled option where you could opt not to get notifications on blog entries older than perhaps a month. Not too sure whether that's possible to implement, however.

Since the rep notifications have been taken down, I think it would be nice to have some Blog notifications.

I always forget about my blogs ><'

It would be nice if it could be implemented(or even possible), because blogs like this (http://www.pokecommunity.com/blog.php?b=3193) don't mean much after they have already came and went :\

I get the inkling that this will mess with what Ausaudriel is cooking up for PC :S

I gave up trying to figure out what sort of devious scheme Audy has planned for PC ages ago, I'm sure I'm not the only one... XD

I agree. After it's off the first page of blogs I don't tend to check mine, and sometimes that's when a few people post. For older blogs some of them are still relevant or I thought the comment was interesting, but it's been 3 months from when that person posted and it's weird to even try posting back.

I agree, it just becomes too much of an inconvenience..

I second this. I would like the notifications for my blog comments, but when I get too many, I'd like them turned off.
