Email notification


The first 50 characters of the first reply are now included in the email notification. Let me know what you think of this. Also right now subscribing to a forum puts the forum in the Subscribed Forums section of MyLQ. I have considered making it so that subscribing to a forum would also email you when there was a new thread. I scrapped the idea as some forums just get way too many new threads. I was thinking of adding a feature where subscribing to a forum would get you a digest (probably daily) that would include all the new thread titles and a link in one convenient email. Would anyone use this?

I like the idea. Could the string in email notification be a bit longer? 128, maybe?

It confused me at first because I am so used to the old layout and I thought I was getting the bulletins... and lots of them! Now that I've become used to this, I think it's great!

I changed the amount of characters to 80. If that is not enough I can raise it again.

I think it's OK now. My main problem was with replies starting with quotations...
Thanks, Jeremy!
