For those who like to read the news here at BC, in the past we had the news in the forums and people could subscribe to that forum and receive new topic notifications.  Now that the news is on the front page, we no longer have that option.

 

User's can subscribe to a article to see new comments, but nothing exists where they can subscribe to notifications for new news articles. Is this something people think they could benefit from?

There is a subscribe button at the end of each post. That button allows you to subscribe to a news post and see new comments.

Once subscribed, the button will change to unsubscribe that you can click on to unsubscribe from the post.

You can also manage your subscriptions here:

Yes, I would find this useful. Usually I don't go on the main site too much so will tend to miss new articles. Notifications will remind me to check the articles :)
