    On Forums, Could we be alerted if someone puts a link to one of our Watched threads, example:

    - MorganPlayzMc Posts a Report for Hacking which has a video of his antiknock back
    - Volkom_ Bans the player

    - The Player posts a Ban Appeal
    - PinkStr3at Says Volkom_ Banned him
    - Volkom_ Gives the link to the report with the video

    - Everyone who posted on the report gets and Alert which when clicked takes us to the appeal so we can give relevant evidence to the thread.

    ? I think this would be helpful

    Eh I don't think this is really necessary, everyone that has contributed to the thread already gets notifications everytime someone posts a new thing on the thread, that includes links. Implementing this isn't really a necessary thing & doesn't do much.

    No if you post a link on another thread, the people who are on the thread that was on the link are notified

    Example, If I Posted:

    =====================================================================================

    Go look at this thread https://www.cubecraftgames.net/threads/dissapearing-kits-points-and-rank-during-games.11281/

    =====================================================================================

    Everyone watching the thread "Dissapearing Kits, Points and Rank during games" Would get an alert that another thread had been given a link to "Dissapearing Kits, Points and Rank during games"

    I think this would cause too many alerts and isn't really necessary..

    What do you mean on the link?

    Like Karl said it causes alot of un-necessary spam notifications, especially when staff are trying to sift through their reports, etc.

    If you're going to implement this for links leading to evidence, no doubt about it a staff will be tagged & there would be an extra notification if there was a link to notification which is just completely un-necessary because the person will get notified regardless if someone comments on the post, whether it be a link or something else.

    If staff get notified every time there is a report / appeal anyway it doesn't matter if you don't get alerted when links a posted. Im talking about players from the original report

    I'm not sure I'm understanding what you mean. Do you mean players that are affiliated with the link get notified?

    The example you provided literally just explains the same thing as an alert.

    I still don't understand what you are trying to implement here but what you described above is the exact same thing as an alert.
