Re: Why “favorites” ? Bad terminology choice?
Yeah I’ve already hacked the core code to make it say “Track this topic in your forum favorites” to make it sound different than adding to your bookmarks which every site nags the visitors to do and so they ignore it.
Too much hacking needed to change the term “favorites” everywhere unfortunately and it was the first thing I sadly had to touch the core for. After hacking up wordpress so much that I cannot easily upgrade it, I swore not to do that on BBpress, especially since it’s so early in alpha/beta
It’s also going to be a problem eventually that a tracking level is not set for each “favorite”, so now they can only get every topic emailed, or none at all.
When in doubt, study vbulletin as a model I suggest…
