I feel like an idiot because I've been on Tom's for quite a while and should know my way around the site but...
Years ago there was an option to get instant notification if a thread was started with certain keywords in the title. I can't seem to find that option anywhere in the profile options.
For example, I get a personal message saying "Forum Tom's Hardware : New topic ([Thread-Title-Here])" with a direct link to the topic.
I absolutely love this for keywords I set up in the past such as "HTPC".
However, there are some I don't care for and I'd like to turn them off. For example, back in 2006 I was researching macbooks for my wife and I set up notification for that keyword. I still get notified EVERY time someone starts a topic with "macbook" in the title. I would like to turn that one off. Plus, I would like some new keywords to be added.
Can someone help me out here? Where are the settings for this???
I requested the feature. So strange that the feature was removed, but I still get my topic notifications of keywords I set up in the past. I wonder if the feature was removed because some idiots had general keywords like "graphics" and so the forum-bots were sending thousands of notifications and flooding the system.
Anyways, I hope the feature makes a comeback. Anyone who reads this and likes the idea be sure to go to the feature request section and vote for it!
@jpishgar-> Darn it, I should have started this thread as a question so I could give you kudos. I can only give you an off-the-record "Thank You".
