    Obviously, this isn't the best option for everybody. There are people that are members of hundreds of groups. However, if we had the ability to toggle this on and off, I think it would be a great help to the people working on translating Smogon into different languages. Bloo requested us to make Social Groups for the translations projects, and you can totally miss an important post if it isn't notified. Kind of like how Facebook does it. The ideal solution would be if members had the option to recieve notifications from Social Groups of there choice, so that they could still be memebers of all their groups, but only recieve notifications from the groups of theie choice.

    Sorry if I was too repetetive lol, that happens when I try to express myself clearly.

    I'm unsure if you know this but you can subscribe to social groups. Top right of the topic listings:

    It offers the same subscription options as the main forums and topics, daily or weekly notifications via email.

    I don't know if private messages or other notifications are possible, but those aren't even options on the main forums right now.

    Oh god, sorry about that. Nope, didn't have a clue you could do that. Just lock this then

    However, notifications that appear on Smogon, like PMs and VMs, are much more comfortable. If this isn't possible, no need
