Dave, I'm new to ATP and have discovered the watch forum and watch thread buttons. There are a couple of members that always seem to have interesting articles and I was wondering if there is a way to "watch" a specific member. I did find the option to go to a member profile and pull all the threads they posted, but wasn't sure if there is a setting to choose to "watch" all the posts by a member show on my homepage(just like forums and threads).

It is technically possible to create such a feature, but I'd be a little hesitant to do it because of the potential "stalking issues" that it could potentially bring up.

Denice, this isn't exactly what you want, but if you go to the "Ideas" tab and find an article written by a member you enjoy reading, when you click on the article you'll see a list of all the other articles that member has written. It won't show you when they write something new, but it will ensure you don't miss the stuff they've already written.

Me too. With some people you just know what they post is going to be interesting.

Could we have a stalker badge? Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks for the reply Dave. That makes sense, although like CDsSister and Plantladylin I do have to smile at the thought of all your "plant people" stalking each other. Smiling I do understand the legal issues though. I am thoroughly enjoying your site. Thumbs up

Maybe we could do it like other sites and call them 'followers' - we can follow blogs already.
Somehow that sounds better than stalkers. Big Grin

Then we would/could have a block feature if people become pests?

We could have a little emoticon, a spray can of the worst insecticide, and send the pests a spray if necessary. Green Grin!

Hey, Marilyn, at least you have to get tired to get grumpy! Hilarious! DH tells me I'm grumpy all the time!

And I still like "stalker" better than "follower." But then I hate all those "other" sites. (Did I mention that I'm always grumpy?) Hilarious!
