Add a button to subscribe users to categories/topics #6124 #6168
Why is this feature being considered? I always thought that category subscriptions was an opt-in feature. It looks like this feature will allow anyone to subscribe anyone else to categories whether or not the subscribed users actuall want to be subscribed. Is that the intention?
Let me ask the question another way. I haven't seen any recent public discussion about the need for this new feature; the discussion died out years ago. Who is asking for it now? What is the public's support for it now? Where can we find some information relating to the current pressure to implement this feature?
