just curious if folks would be into getting an email when someone posts something on their profile. currently, profile alerts only show up in the alert drop down list when you log in. the bad side of this is that i can't currently bundle up all the emails into one, so you'd end up getting an email each time someone posts on your profile.

vote!

No - I'm inundated with stupid shit coming from real and bogus copycat job placement sites. Anyway email is full - but right now we get an alert (flag) to someone posting something to our profile and I do read them. So my vote is to carry on as is. :D But thank you for the new tool that came about for us. :)

This isn't something which I think I need right now. If I were getting harrassed and logged in infrequently, it would be cool to have.

I thought we got them already? Ah well, I don't mind knowing what's going on, a profile message is the same as an email message in my books.

when someone posts on your profile, an alert (red square) comes up next to the flag at the top right of the website (the alerts panel). currently you do not get an email sent to your email account when someone posts on your profile. you only get emails when someone replies to a thread you created or replied to, or when someone sends you a PM (conversation). the proposed change would add emails being sent out for each time someone posts someone on your profile.

My vote would be yes, with the option to remove it. Personally, I don't like email notifications, but more choice is always better, no?

And since people mostly voted no, I'd set it at no for default

When I'm interested in what's going on, I log on. I mean, some people might want them, but I think that if this feature is introduced we should be able to turn it off pretty easily. My email gets crowded enough as it is. Goddamn spambox is brimming with viagra salesmen and catfishing princes from Kazakhstan.

i think most people agree that this kind of feature is unnecessary. which is fine with me, less work for me to do :p
