Post reply alerts?

Is there no way to somehow add convenient post reply alerts? I know UG once had various interface add-ons installed (such as that instant messaging thing at the bottom of the screen) so why can't we have post reply alerts or someway to consolidate post replies? It just seems archaic and tedious to have to check and scroll through pages of threads to see if a post of yours was replied to. We could base it on a.) if someone directly quoted your post or part of it and b.) if someone wrote your username somewhere in their post. This way we would be able be notified of replies like weeks or months after you made a post.

Is this sort of thing possible and/or has this already been added and I'm just too stupid to realize it?

it would either be too resource intensive (searching for each username every so often for 1.9 million users) or it would require a new forum software. And considering the amount of optimisation that has been done to this version to get it working smoothly for the amount of users we have, I can't see it happening in the immediate future.

If you want to see if you've been quoted, search for your username and you'll find each post where you've been quoted or someone has mentioned your username.

definitely in favor of some sort of chat. group chat is acceptable.

i just search my username. that brings up any posts i've been quoted in and most posts i'm mentioned in. if someone plays with my name it doesn't work
