New Supporter Perk - Subscribed Threads on Your Buddy

Forums - Website Topics - New Supporter Perk - Subscribed Threads on Your Buddy

Hey guys,

Talon has just rolled out a new feature, as part of his ongoing work improving the site. This one is just for Supporters for now, because it's their support that helps us bring these things to the site. As promised on the perks list, Gold Supporters have priority access, so Gold supporters will find it added to their accounts already, and we'll roll it out to the other tiers in a couple of days (edit - all supporter tiers now have access to this perk).

The perk introduces a new tab on your VGChartz Buddy that allows you to create a custom list of subscribed threads. We'll be looking to add plenty more new perks as we go along, and of course a bunch of new things for regular users too, including GameDB improvements right at the top of Talon's personal list. 


Here are some images of it in action on my Buddy (open them in a new tab to see them in higher resolution):







You add threads to your Subscribed tab by click the 'Subscribe' button at the top of the thread you want to Subscribe to, and remove them the same way:





There's technically no limit, but if you add more than 15 threads to your tab then only the 15 threads that were most recently posted in will show up.

Nice!



Love and tolerate.

Thats actually an excellent feature.Actually so good, that it should be a standard for any user, given that it could improve the experience quite alot.Any plans of making this functionality "public"?

Yep, as I said in the OP - it's Supporters-only for now, but eventually everyone will get it.

As Machina already stated - this is "Gold Supporter" for now. It will move to "General Supporters" soon, with an eventual release to everyone.

...there's a dual purpose to a roll out like this - it gives those on the fence about joining our Supporter network another reason to consider, as well as giving features like this a chance to "slow roll" in case there are big problems that went undetected. :)



That is actually something worth supporting for, an awesome - but not totally necessary - perk indeed.

Nice job Talon and the rest of you. I like what you've done with the place.

...we're only just getting warmed up!! :D



Cool feature that could help end with the habit of "tagging" a thread until you find time to post or have something interesting to say.

Thanks, guys.

This will really help with me keeping track of my official threads! Now I won't have to look around for them.
