      Description

      Another thing I could have sworn I entered a ticket for...

      I think it would be a good idea to add a site-based notification system that could be used instead of emails. These days, many people don't like email or don't pay much attention to it, whereas a notification system would let us display something on the page while people are using the site.

      The exact details of how it would work would need discussing, but some ideas:

      • Have options to let people choose whether to receive emails, notifications, or a mixture of both.
      • Have a daily summary email that says how many unread notifications and messages you have. Something like that would probably be good for people who don't visit the site very often.
      • If someone has unread notifications for more than $x days, send them an email anyway.
