Keep the conversation going within a community…
… remind users to reply to questions in topics they have participated in.
- you get a reply
- or the post under yours in a topic “asks a question” (ends a sentence with a question mark “?”)
- you haven’t replied to that topic since that post
- display a reminder or suggestion to continue the conversation - or you may have forgotten to reply to.
This feature may have to be more intelligent - but that explains the basics.
Perhaps when you have no notifications this could be displayed.
This could also work well for Private Messages and possibly be included in periodic emails, items that are more specific to a user are more likely to drive users back to a community.
