I am an avid user of email notification when it comes to commenting on weblogs. With the help of Scriptygoddess’ “Subscribe To Comments” plugin, I am providing that very feature on this site.
The idea is, if you comment on a weblog entry, you can be notified by email whenever new comments are added. Currently, you have to check the checkbox yourself if you want this, but I love the feature so much, that I’m considering turning on comment subscription by default.
Before I do this, however, I want to ask you, the reader, what your preference is: should comment subscription be on by default?
Update: I have decided to leave comment subscription off, for the time being, but redesign the comment form slightly, to better encompass the subscription checkbox. The checkbox state will be cookied, and it will be part of the tab index, prior to the post button. Once this is done, I will leave it like this for a while, and then check up and evaluate again. Thanks for all your replies and suggestions.
