Perhaps you have some good ideas about how the interface should work.
From Jurgis Pralgauskis (jpral at yahoo.com) Thursday, 23 September 2004, 08:47 AM:
I would say subscribe per topic, as thread imight be too dynamic..
in my post http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=11448 I said little more (bout interface <- phpbb
From Martin Dougiamas (martin at moodle.com) Wednesday, 29 September 2004, 07:04 PM:
discussion topic = thread (in Moodle). Same thing.
Interface ideas still wanted (there are none at the previously mentioned discussion). What we need are specific clean ideas for making it work within the Moodle form framework.
My brain is tired so I can't even get started thinking about it.

As some forums are overposted thread subcription, instead of forum subcription, should be more effective for personal interests and server load.
From jaime alamo (jaime.alamo at uv.es) Tuesday, 14 December 2004, 12:17 AM:
1. Add to the forum list of subscribers a thread list of subscribers for each thread.
2. In each post add links to subscribe to this thread and unsubscribe to this thread
3. In the liked page, check the user is not already subscribed to the forum or the thread and proceed accordingly. People wanting thread mails should unsubscribe to that forum.
4. For each new post, the mailer should send mails to both lists

I've implemented this for a moodle 1.5.3 installation, and would be very happy to share it - especially if it gets implemented on moodle.org!
Personally, it's always something that bothered me about the moodle.org forums - there are certain discussions that I'd like to follow, but not necessarily all discussions in a single forum.
How I implemented it:
When creating / editing a forum, I added a question whether or not to allow subscriptions to single discussions.
If discussion subscription has been allowed for a forum, then there is a (un)subcribe to this discussion link at the top of each discussion. Entire forum subscriptions work as they did before; I didn't change how they function.
- added a 'discussion' column to the forum_subscriptions table
- added an 'allowthreadsubscription' column to the forum table
- minor changes made to the files:

This should be added to CVS, IMO. I don't see how providing the option can hurt, especially since it's coded.

Could you upload a patch for this? I'd like to implement it for School Engine.
From Martin Dougiamas (martin at moodle.com) Monday, 3 April 2006, 10:49 AM:
Yes, I'll implement this if we get a patch
From brian king (free.as.in.speech at gmail.com) Wednesday, 5 April 2006, 04:35 PM:
as i last left the code, there was still some buggy behavior. seeing as people are interested, i'll dig out the code and debug it - and should have a patch in the next couple of weeks.
