Let's just say don't expect much in the way of videos from me this year. :(

At the moment you have to check the My Alerts page. (or RSS feed) Maybe I can add a box or something for the five or ten latest items at some point, but since the things at the bottom currently there still work (and are automatic, you don't have to turn them on), I left them there for now. The alerts, however, will let you know about OPs and QCs on collaborations.

Kitsuner wrote:Great work as usual. One thing though: certain options for certain users can't be altered. In other words, the drop down menu for how often to be alerted is greyed out on some spots.

That means they have privacy on for that item. I should add some explanation or something.

As I said, the code honours the private flag when you enter a journal, and it should also honour the "date available" when you enter a video. Let me know if you see anything weird.

I like it, I just think that you should be able to see who it is that's watching you...

I'm uncomfortable not knowing who's stalking me ;_;

This is pretty cool overall. Especially the new video notification. I've missed new videos from editors I <s>stalk</s> follow before and now, hopefully, I won't. :P
Having trouble playing back videos? I recommend: Image

Great feature, although the privacy flags have me a bit skeptical about the end usefulness of this, but it has great potential and has been a long time coming. Not being able to see who is watching makes a lot of sense.

Do you get notified every time I visit your profile to check if you've got new vids up?
No.

This feature is for members who watch videos, so they don't have to constantly check your profile to see if you've uploaded a new vid, not so editors who make videos know who their "hardcore fans" are.

Be happy with your privacy flag, which at least for video uploads is pretty stupid since you can already just check their profile, and alerts are supposed to eliminate the need to constantly do that.

Out of idle curiosity, do you have any way to tell when someone does a google search on you? Cause that has a lot more to do with stalking than getting a notification that you uploaded a new video.

Nice addition. I probably won't use it too much though. I like signing in and finding a surprise OP I wasn't expecting. :p

No, but I'm not notified of the exact number of people who google me either, so I don't think about it :D
(and I'm not actually, I'd just like to know because I'm a curious person :P)

This site works from two different perspectives. Those who create videos, and those who are just here to enjoy them. Perhaps when you upload a video, you'll see that knowing who appreciates what you've made is valued by creators. What, do we think so highly of ourselves that we don't care?

I don't think that what Doki had in mind when he coded it was "I don't want people seeing who their "hardcore fans" are". But I suppose you'd have to ask him. It's not a necessary feature, just one that would be nice to have. The only problem I see is that maybe some members don't want it known that they're watching someone's profile. But if you like their videos, why hide it?

Phew! Getting worn out from all the Doki glomps lately. Anyhow, this is probably one of the coolest yet. Some of my friends keep releasing vids without me knowing and then I get a big surprise when I go to their profile and there's all these vids there. :? So this will definately come in handy. *^_^* Thanx Doki! *GLOMP*
