The forum uses Discourse, and it supports a feature called groups, which lets you put users in a group and notify them by @'ing them.
And I was thinking, it might be beneficial to put everyone who’s interested in participating in polls in a group, and whenever you want more opinions about something, you can @ this group.
Of course, joining the group is 100% voluntary, as you’ll be notified when someone @ you. Discourse makes sure of warning a user that he’s notifying a group that consists of X people, but the risk is that someone might mess up and @ the group a few times and thus spams everyone in that group.
What do you guys think?
- Don’t think this is useful
- Whatever (indifferent)
- This is useful
- This is useful and I’d like to be in that group
