    Not sure if this is even possible, but here goes.

    I wanna follow every new thread Wiz posts, what am I to do? Wait for him to post like a stalker? Nay, perhaps an alternate would be to "follow" Wiz on TPU so that I'm notified to his new threads(not posts) via email.

    Followings could be available for News posters, Reviewers, or possibly any member.


    Any chance this is workable?

    It would be a great idea for news editors and staff, but not so so great for members. Its like someone stalking you rofl. Or maybe they have to accept, stuff like that, could work out.

    This sounds like an inbox flooding waiting to happen. :p

    Only if I subscribed to Bta's threads. But then, perhaps thats the point. Be notified of Bta's new news threads via email, and read them quickly, decide what to look at and be good.
