Soon after we launched the site, we noticed that a number of long comment threads were taking shape on both recipes and blog posts. We didn't want anyone to miss out on a conversation or have to keep track of a particular thread, so now we do this for you. We can let you know by email if a new comment has been added to one of your recipes or to a comment thread you've contributed to, or if someone fans you. If you want this feature, go to your "Edit Your Profile" page and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There, you'll see:
Check this box if you would like to be notified by email whenever someone comments on one of your recipes, becomes a fan of you, or responds to a thread you've commented on. (You can opt-out of this at any time.)
We've been using the feature for a few days now and have found it really fun -- hope you'll give it a try!
