Curious if there’s a good way to give users the option to be notified about links to watched threads being used elsewhere on the site?
I am a moderator on a forum where we auto-close threads with a message encouraging folks start new topics with links back to related threads. This is useful for tidiness and topic-focus.
Some folks monitoring those old threads have asked to be notified when those links are used in new topics. Right now, I think you are only notified when a link to a topic you created is used elsewhere.
I suspect the best answer is to encourage our users to watch and get notifications about related tags and categories, but thought I’d ask y’all if other best practices exist.
