Continuing the discussion from Setting defaults to enable mailing list mode-Temporary Solution:
Anyone following me knows I’m all about mailing list mode. I love it because it keeps community content fresh in the face of our users.
The powers that be at discourse are all about the web-UI, and rightfully so… it’s beautiful, laid out well, easy to search, navigate, bookmark, link to, etc etc etc. It’s the best mailing list archive I’ve ever seen, period.
What occurs to me is that the behavior I want out of discourse is FAR more like auto-watching every topic. Easily able to unwatch or mute a topic which no longer has interest.
Kinda like Jeff does here:
Before I go database diving and scripting ways to have every user auto-watch a forum’s important categories… is there a way to do that in the UI already?
With this available
- auto setting
- then allowing people to get copies of all posts they create by email
I truly believe we’ll get the best of both worlds. Especially if email footers can have links to unwatch a topic.
