Sorry if I missed it this week.  I had a couple of ideas I'd love to see.

1. I'd love to be able to tag other users in forum posts and comments.

2. I'd also love to be able to choose to just follow a post even if I'm not planning on commenting.

3. I'd love to get notifications from a post I've commented on even if it isn't a direct reply to my comment.

Some of the other comments had me thinking about something I really like on SBNation when I am reading comments.  They have the new comments (ones that you haven't personally seen yet) in a different color.  This helps you avoid re-reading everything you've already seen before trying to find what's new.

All three of those things sound great to me.

Great suggestions Scott!

I've definitely wanted to tag users before, nice suggestions! I especially like the idea of #2.

Another suggestion I just thought of that would go along with that - saved/bookmarked posts. Not necessarily "following" a post, in that this would be subscribing and getting notifications, but saving a post to reference at some later date. I'm imagining it working just like the Reddit saving feature does.

Great idea.  I've done this on Facebook before too.  I do sometimes find myself scouring back through the forum looking for posts I've been interested in and then clicking to see if there is anything new.

I like this too. I've saved/bookmarked Facebook posts in the past for things like recipes or interesting/useful info to refer back to. Nice to have it accessible but no need to follow.

I'd love to have those features especially with the forum getting more activity and interesting discussions lately. Some of those have been mentioned before, but repeatedly seeing everyone's thoughts on these helps us to know the priority

Edit: plus, bouncing off of each other in the comments has been leading to some great ideas

Great recommendations, I thought tagging users was under development, but if not it ll be good to have.

Amen. I have wished for all of this in the last several days. The IP discussion is /was interesting and they're is still some activity there that you have to look for. I would love if I could subscribe to that, as well as some other discussions. 

I've also been wishing you could sort the posts by the time they were last edited. As of now you can sort it by post age, and by "hotness"

I found myself keep checking on the IP post and the "geography" post too haha

Those are all great feature ideas. I'll think through how to implement them since I think they're all ones that Phil & I agree would be a good thing to have.

I really do appreciate seeing y'all listen to the users like that. It is easy for us to shoot off ideas, but it is a lot harder for you to implement them. I really do appreciate all you are doing.
