Quick question on Elliquiy Etiquette
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:29:18 AM »
Is it customary here on Elliquiy to send a PM informing a writing partner of a new post in a thread, or is it not considered necessary?

I'd consider it poking. Maybe once after initial post is made, but it should drop off after two or three posts in the game. There are other ways for partners to keep up with replies, and constant messages that you posted can come off as pushy and obligatory.

Most people keep track of their threads through either the Bookmarks feature or through the Show new replies to your posts feature.  Past their first response in the thread, no additional messages should be required to inform them of a new post.

Alright, cool. I always get a bit paranoid when I move to another online community, it's so easy to break the unwritten rules that no one ever bothers mentioning. Thanks Inkidu and Oniya!

I personally like the Notify feature. It's like being a little kid and having something come in the normal mail with your name on it. I am like ooooh something new and possibly sexy to read!

It's my favorite, too.  I don't have a lot of time, usually, to spend f5ing and often forget to look thinking I'll do it later and then get interrupted again or fall asleep.  Notifications arrive, make me smile and sit there looking at me until I can pay attention to them.  If only they would whistle now an then they would be perfect! :D
