Continuing the discussion from Patch Notes 27.7.X.13:
It seems a slight problem with us doing Patch Notes this way (someone posts the thread elsewhere, then moderators moving the thread into News), that forum users won’t receive a New Topic notification, even if they are Watching/Tracking the News subforums.
At least I’m assuming that is what the reason is. I never get a New Topic notification for Patch Notes, and it is one of the things I do want to be actively, Asap, told about via notifications.
Is there anything mods could do differently to handle Patch Notes threads? Would, before mod does the thread move, creating a New Topic in News subforum and then doing it as a ‘merge’ work better somehow?
Or am I just getting bothered about nothing, and we carry on with things as they are? Slightly imperfect but at least straightforward.
The same principles/problems would apply to Community > Official Events subforum.
