We’re excited to announce a new feature on the Developer Forum: you can now follow other developers!
What does following do?
Following another developer ensures you get notified whenever that person makes a new topic or post.
On the home page, whenever somebody you’re following has made a new post or topic, you’ll also see a “Following” tab that only shows topic that developers you’re following have either created or replied to.
How do I follow other developers?
You can follow somebody on their DevForum profile or their usercard in replies:
just saying, you should hit that button for your pal coefficients
You can see the entire list of developers you’re following on your profile under the Network tab:
Known issues and limitations:
- Muted topics still show up in the Following tab on the home page. Ideally, they should not be visible there. This is something we’ll look into.
- You can only do “all or nothing” when following another developer; there are no granular options yet. In the future, we might add options such as: only following new topics from a user (not replies), silently following (not getting notifications but still having the topics show up on the Following tab on the home page), etc.
Go follow the developers whose posts you don’t want to miss! Let us know what you think about this feature.
