As you know, I love announcing new features here on Slope, which happens with some regularity. This time, however, I’d like to re-introduce a feature we’ve made a lot better: the Follow function.
Simply stated, if you want to see every comment any specific Sloper makes, just click on the Follow button, as shown below (it looks like a pedestrian):
We’ve had this button for years, but until now, it just let you follow responses to a specific comment. This, frankly, isn’t terribly useful.
With this improved approach, you will promptly get emailed anytime any users you follow makes a comment. The email will look something like this:
If you want to stop following someone, just click on the same icon (which now will have a cross through it, indicating its new purpose), and you won’t follow that Sloper anymore.
