DO community notifications and threads

Posted July 31, 2014 4.1k views


Is it possible to receive notifications for threads I comment or open? How can I easily find topics I created or participated in again? I’m new here and it doesn’t seem there is a dashboard or user profile where this kind of info is centralized. :)

The community has been updated. Awesome changes thanks. :)

  • It took a little longer than we initially hoped and there are still some kinks to work out, but we hope you find it to be a big improvement!

  • It is a big improvement, indeed. :)

    Though, I’d like to add that 2-factor authentication is a pain in the @ss. It’s really boring, we have to pass it each time we come to the Community or the Control Panel. I’m not a power user but it still means 5-10 times a day. Could you remember a safe computer/browser for a week or 2? Like Facebook, Gmail, etc.? It would be so convenient.

    It’s such a pain that I really consider deactivating 2FA on Digital Ocean…

    Thanks. :)

Currently, no. But, we’re working on it, and it should be available soon. Stay tuned! :)

Hi there!

We’ve got some big changes for the community site rolling out soon. I think you might be pleasantly surprised if you check back in next week. ;-)

Are there any improvements regarding these suggestions, a few weeks later? Andrew SB talked about one week or so. :)
