So has anyone noticed that people reply to a post you made (be it on their userpage or in the forums)way quicker than usual? I gotten back into the habit of typing things again on this website (just briefly)and the responses where so quick and I was like "yah thats probably got to do with the new feed system that shows activity on the frontpage"

I can't be the only one that noticed this?

I don't use the feed feature myself, I just keep to checking threads I have posted in myself like usual to see if anything has been added towards me.

but....now you can actually see all the people that quoted you if you just go to your feed thingy. Isn't that easier then having to manually check threads or going back to your posts?

I always suspected there was some sort of gap between the forums (general in specific)and the rest of the site, and these two replies are confirming this more and more.

Alright I'll put the cards on the table you sound like a p cool guy, I was joking, of course I see it.

And yes, yes I do use it myself. Unfortunately it still notifies me of certain replies I have already seen before.

That's so nice of you dudeman.

Ah yes, the being-ahead-of-the-system issue. We all suffer from that sadly enough thanks to twitter and facebook.

i know right, gosh, browsing entire threads just for that reply that may or may not have happened

Anyway dudes, you people seem to always be fast and right on top of things, I just noticed a difference in response speed, because now its on the person frontpage when you post on their blog. They don't have to manually go check, which I thougth sped up the reply process.
Theres a bigger sense of connectivity.

or maybe im just drunk, who knows

I find it incredibly useful.
Before the feed was there I had to constantly have to go to my profile to see if I had any new comments and shit on my news posts, and had in the past completely missed some by entire days. Now I get em pretty much right as soon as they're made.
Same goes with whenever someone replies to something I say on the BBS.

Granted I wont deny that it DOES feel a tad..."stalkerish"....
Then again I felt the same way when they made the whole "fanning" thing.

Ya exactly, now everything feels more instantaneous.

pfff, doesn't it feel like stalking when you go through someones pictures on facebook? Doesn't it feel like stalking if you click on someones profile and go through their shit? The internet in general is one big following, stalking, "I-WANT-TO-SEE-YOUR-EVERY-MOVE" thing.
I mean, come on, look at twitter. People telling a milion other people what they are doing at and where they are doing it.
Stalking isn't some creepy thing that only a few people do, it has become the new norm.

It is very handy. I still check threads, but mainly rely on the feed.

Yupp, didn't take long to notice. I also noticed that I reply to replies quicker than usual, and to reviews, and to blog post comments, and to pretty much anything else (though that's pretty much it). It's a great new feature! :)

I like the notifications for blog post replies. I hated checking everyone I visit regularly for replies.

I used to use was I quoted before the feed. So I was still able to catch most of the people who quoted me.
