If I follow someone what does that get me? Do I get an alert to every single post, or what?

Depends . . . if you follow them home you may get 30 to 60 days on a stalking charge.
Sorry, Danno . . . couldn't help myself . . . and sadly I don't know the answer to your question.
I was gonna' say a restraining order.
dag nabbit. y'all are no help. i am just gonna have to "follow" a random user and see what happens...
I'll get a restraining order.
I mean it.
just for that...
No, it pretty much just shows you a small icon on the sidebar who's online at any given time. More like a shortcut to their page or if you want to send a message, etc. At least that's the impression I am under.....
Just showed up as an alert that you're stalk.......uh, following me.
lame. all I notice so far is what scotty described. On the side where it lists all the online people, it actually has a special heading that says "people you follow" or something like that and under that heading is your icon instead of just your name in the list below.
I don't know what I WANT it to do, but that's not really all that neat.
I think there are alot of features that the new forum has, but Craig has not unlocked all of them yet. Which is part of the plan, that way we aren't overwhelmed with a pile of stuff all at once. I think this site is supposed to have a lot of the features that AS has eventually, but I could be wrong. I'm kinda hoping for an Android -based browsing app someday.
I get a lot of alerts to existing threads....nice. However, I sometimes get so busy following those that I miss new threads.
Where's that 48 hr. day I asked for?
Hmmm... I havent had any stalkers since the late '80's.Though she was fun & wild at first,I quickly grew tired of that & soon was more concerned with my safety.
There is a thing called personal profiles which I have not allowed....it's sorta a "wall" like Facebook where other people can post on your page.
As they say, if it's not broke, don't fix it and having publicly available comments on each members wall strikes me as asking for trouble!
As to the new forum - it's like all software. Heck if I know what it does! I never learned more than about 5% of Excel or 10% of Photoshop.
Nope we dont need that IMO,Craig.I dont think anyone wants it either.This is perfect the way it is now.That's why I still enjoy it here & keep coming back.
Play Misty For You
Thanks Craig. Please don't turn this site into a facebook wall, etc... (I still don't have a facebook account, lol....plenty of ways for members to communicate with each other on the forum....please leave it turned off!
True story . . . I ended up marrying my stalker . . . and come August 31st we'll have celebrated 16 years of marriage.
Stalkers or streakers?
Both still exist.
I was seeing this woman for several years until I lost my binoculars.
First date . . . she was the stalker and I was the streaker . . . but since this is a PG-rated site I really should not and can not tell that story.
The people you follow show up in the "News Feeds". You can see there recent activities and posts.
Kinda like stalking... I guess.
I have a few I follow. As they always have some solid advice or comical posts or both
I'm definitely overwhelmed with all the stuff on other forums like arborsite and MyTractorForum.. This software is by far the slickest and easiest to use, ESPECIALLY for pictures/video.
I ain't gots no followers, , guess I should back off on the bean chili a bit.
I'll follow any member for $5.00/month. Just lemme know through private convo & we'll set it up. For an extra fee, I'll "Like" every post you put up.
There are several members who pay me 5 bucks a month not to follow them.
OK, yer being followed now MM... ...and if you so much as leave out one chili fart, yer gettin smacked.
