Well, the name pretty-well tells it all. I personally think that this is far overdue - I mean, it would be nice to know when friends make a new blog post...

Thx for considering it! :D

I second the motion.

Obviously I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but it seems to me that if we get update with articles from groups, it would make sense to be updated by blogs as well.

Just my two cents. Also, I do realize that Desura does something similar, but on a community wide scale.

Very true.

sure, why not.

Just track their user page like you do with mods and groups, you should get an update if they make a blog post through that.

The feature has already been implemented for a very long time now. If you "Track Member" then you will be updated on anything they post.

Nope, you dont get blog updates, try testing it out with a friend sometime. Tracking the member doesn't track their blog - for some reason that is.

I've had the same problem myself as have several of my trackers. So if it is implemented, it's either broken or simply not working for us (is that the same thing?).

Trust me, I've been tracking several people, and I never see their blogs.

Hm... I've noticed that, too... I wonder if something possible broke when I asked Henley to alter the behavior of private blogs being listed on Desura Community Page?

Yeah...could swear it used to work....but blog updates sure aint worken no more...
Hope it gets fixed =)

Yeah, the blog updates is broke!

I'll tell you something strange; I recently got an update from one of the users I'm tracking, and it was an article that they posted back in 2009, so it does work.

There is a lot of content on peoples profile's that I miss out on reading, sometimes I get updates sometimes I don't, so it must be glitch. :(

Never seen an issue with it. The tracking options is for site updates, not blogs.

Hmm, but wouldn't it make sense, if we get updated by the media of users, that the blogs would be updated as well? I mean, articles and such kinda act as blogs for games and mods and we get updated with those, but why not blogs?

I see no reason to ostracize (holycrap, achievement unlock -- I actually spelled that right on the first try) the blogs, so it if it isn't that much trouble, can updates be made to include blog updates?

I actually think .Ravenblood mentioned it to INtense! so we might end up seeing something.

Ah, here: Moddb.com

No problem. If it weren't for blogging on ModDB, I wouldn't have the outlet for my writing that I have here.

You guys do know that tracking other users will tell you if they have posted a blog right?
