recently I was asking some questions on How social networking sites get notifications with refreshing the page, then Roel replied to it and suggested me this forum. I want to ask why the coderanch don't work on such technology.
Like if someone replied to my question, i get notification.
there is no need to refresh the page to see the posts on OP's question.

I believe that's what the 'Watch Topic' button does

i never noticed it, and even don't know what exactly it does. My opinion is to show a notification like: you have 2 answers on abc post. this notification should show on "my posts" button.

If you watch a topic, you'll be notified (you get an email) when someone posts a reply to this topic.

tried, but didn't understand what exactly it is doing. "watch topic" coverts to "stop watching". I think this like "follow- unfollow " a topic ?

Yes, it's like following and unfollowing a topic. If you follow a topic, you'll be notified when a new post is made. And if you are following a topic and are not interested anymore in updates on this topic, you can simply unfollow the topic. That's why the "watch topic" button changes into "stop watching" once you have clicked the button.

I am following/watching this topic and I received this e-mail when you posted your previous message

yes me too get these mails. But why on mails, we should also get notified on the coderanch too , on the front page (without clicking on "my posts" ).

Hi, thanks for noticing, however i feel this is not a good place for me to reply on the same since its a separate discussion than your actual post. Email me or pm me on coderanch itself and I would give you the details.
