Email notifications

would be really nice to have options to be notified by email of new messages, favorites, follows, etc


And especially on commission related messages and statuses! :D


I'm actually surprised that this is not available here. In this day and age, going to a website each time you want to check if something changed there is out right ridiculous, especially if there's some sort of conversation going on that one would like to be kept up to date on.

Understandably, this doesn't necessarily even have to be live: make it a daily digest type of notification to reduce the strain on the mail server and make it less annoying for people who track many others, or throttle e-mail notifications for users with huge "output" or "input" e-mail-wise so that more than one event could be captured in a single letter... If it's still an issue, then what about some sort of RSS feed instead? Let some other service like IFTTT poll it and convert to e-mail...

I know it's harder to implement right than it actually sounds, but it's one of those basic things that just have to be there in some form... :\

Make sure there are multiple options for these, I don't really want to get spammed by it.


We're planning to input this to a degree. For people either buying or selling commissions, there will be an option to receive email notifications. We understand that not everyone checks the site every day, so hopefully this will help people keep the commission process moving.
