    Contributed Indicators, Templates, etc update notification

    Is there a process, automatic or otherwise, where users that have downloaded user contributed components are notified when there is an update (either fixes or enhancements) made to those components? Is there something that the person doing the update needs to do to make this happen?

    This is an important part of user component sharing that would need to be addressed if there isn't a process available .

    Hi Frank,

    A user should be able to subscribe to receive email updates for a thread. This way they can be notified when an update is posted to the thread.
    This forum software is the same that NinjaTrader Support forum and Futures.io uses (vBulletin). Things should be the same, or nearly the same as we are using a newer version.

    Hi Mike:

    The problem with that is sometimes there may not be a thread associated to an indicator or downloaded material. I have posted a number of indicators on Futures IO without having a thread associated with it and some of them have been download hundreds of times. The Futures IO somehow keeps track of who has downloaded an indicator and will send out notifications when it has been changed.
    However I know the notification is not a fully automated process as Mike needs to be asked to send out notifications. There are thousands of users on that site so somehow those notifications are send to only those that have downloaded the component.

    Maybe there needs to be a thread where the submitter just posts the fact that something (indicator, template, ...) has been updated and everyone (that downloads stuff) needs to subscribe to.
