    I have seen on other forums a notification that comes up when someone has been quoted in a post. I find this feature very helpful because if someone quotes you in a post and asks a question related to content, you get notified when you login and you can go to that post to read and reply. I think that helps a great deal especially when someone needs assistance with something that was posted by someone else. I know that it can be done via PM as well, but that is not beneficial to everyone else who may benefit from the same question and answer. I think it would be a very nice feature to add to the forum. I see that there is a plugin here but I am not sure if it is compatible with mu-43 vBulletin version since the plugin was last updated in 2010. Maybe there are other options as well?

    Thanks for doing some digging for a plugin. I will look into this.

    Apparently this is a feature on the mobile app:


    I've never seen how it works because I turned notifications off for the mu43 app, but I've turned it on now because I'm curious to see if it's a feature I would find useful or not.

    This mod is probably the most popular way of addressing this omission:

    I haven't installed it myself but It’s seems well supported & I've heard good things about it, though you need to read the doc’s fully to understand what you’re installing – I think most the features can be switched on/off. Of course it’s an extra source of potential bugs.
