I'd like to see the similar functionality for Showcase Items as Thread Replies. So when you post a Comment to a Showcase Item you should be Watching that Item automatically. And then you'll receive further Alerts on New Comments on that items.
Thanks Bob, the basic reason why I missed this is, some people comment on items and ask something and I answer them within comments but they don't get notified by Alerts. With auto watching feature people will get instant Alert that I or someone else also commented on the item.
There's a Watch Item feature but its useless on my site and no one using it, I'm just tired telling people about Watching Item in order to get Alerts. I'd like to have the same behavior how Threads auto watching system works when we Reply. I mean the ability to Auto Watch an Item when you post a Comment on showcase items.
If you don't have auto watch function, people visit an item, ask something, you answer them in comment, people will not be notified about this, disappointed
If we have auto watch function, people will get an alert about the comment and visited back, found the answer, happy
Hope it will be considered and soon implementation
