You can follow someone but you're never notified of any of their activity

You must manually visit each post of any user to actually follow only those topics.

Some persons I'd like to follow have posts going back many years.

It would be a monumental task to actually visit these Poll Contributors Posts.

Thanks.

Could this option please be activated instead of deactivated?

Someone keeps changing this to an Idea Post.

This is not an Idea.

If there is an option/function of "FOLLOW", why have it if it does "Nothing"

To "ME"!!!! This is a problem.

Could an IMDb staff member respond and explain why there is a follow function that's obviously "TURNED OFF"
Thanks!!!!!
May Paxton...

I have often wondered the same thing. I am glad I am not the only one.

@keyword_expert

Again IMDb Moderators have changed this to an "IDEA" Post

It is not an "IDEA"

It is a Problem

It is a disabled function.

54 people have visited this post.

Please.....Would all of those 54 who have visited here.... comment that you want IMDb to enable this disabled function.

Thanks all..................

I should probably start my own thread to make this point, but it would also be nice to have the ability to "mute" specific users on this forum. That's essentially the opposite of "following" a user. Both options should be added (and both should be rendered functional).

Hi K_PAXTON -

Can you confirm if this issue is still occurring?

If so, my understanding is that you are selecting to "Follow" another community member,

but you are not seeing any notifications when that member posts new threads or replies, is that correct?

@Michelle I think your screenshot has an unintended personal information leak.

Hi forthehorde -

Thanks for the notice, I initially missed the personal information display, as such I have now removed the example image.

Thanks again!

Hi All -

Unfortunately, we currently don't support this following feature in the IMDb Community. 

I have set this thread to "Idea" for staff visibility and so members of the community can continue to comment and vote on this feature request.

@Michelle

So it is policy that you do not have this turned on?

Is my interpretation of your answer correct.

Because you said, "We" don't support this following feature in the IMDb Community.

If so.

Why?

What harm is done following those we wish to?

I asked for an answer above in the thread heading. Instead "We" get a cryptic answer.

Sounds as though Sprinklr doesn't support the particular type of notification option, or at the very least the requisite "plugin" (or so) for it has not been installed on the IMDb Community forum. I'm not a direct customer of Sprinklr, and I'm unaware of any other communities/hubs hosted through Sprinklr, so I wouldn't be able to check to see the scope of Sprinklr forum design/management features.

I'm part of another community on Spriklr. It is a functioning option. IMDb obviously has it turned off. We are being treated as 10 year olds. We are all considered to be threats to others. IMDb wants to avoid discourse. This is a common practice now web wide. Free Speech is a bad thing!
