    Tossing this out, should we change this?

    Since the inception of HTalk we send email replies to our members WITHOUT the actual reply text.

    Is it about time to change that?

    Should we include the reply content in the reply email notification?

    Don't forget to vote... this is a pole thread.

    I don't check my email all the time but I think that would be nice!

    It doesnt affect me, but if I was to get email notifications the substance of the topic would be beneficial.

    Ben, you forgot to vote

    I personally would prefer that. And it's already done with the random 'you've been liked' notification emails that sometimes show up.

    But, if the goal of the site is to bring traffic to the site - then what you suggest would be counter-productive to that interest.

    I don't look at my email for replies, so I voted no.

    I don't think it would matter to me. Curiosity already makes me take a look.

    I don't get emails from the site, so I am not sure if it matters.

    I'll think about it.

    I would like that also. Good idea if you ask me.
