    The bad new ticket voting system has caused this crucial and widely-requested issue to fall to the bottom of the pile. It's been over FOUR YEARS since the initial report and we're still stuck with this crappy ticket system that is missing the most basic feature to close the QA loop.

    Is this ever going to be fixed? IMO the quality of all addons hosted on Curse/wowace is suffering due to the lack of this crucial feature.

    IMO the ticket system is a joke without auto-reporting to ticket authors - it doesn't close the loop for getting essential communication from the addon author (fixer) to the reporter (fixee). How are we supposed to perform sane QA without this?

    Just put a PM in my inbox when a) new ticket in one of your projects is mad b) ticket I'm assigned to gets updated Keeping track of ticket is a pita :o

    It's has been almost two years since this _serious_ issue was reported.

    Users and authors are both losing time because of this missing feature.

    I just received two different bug reports telling me that they are getting error messages. Did they include the error message in the ticket? Of course they didn't. Who would be so silly as to include the most important piece of information necessary to fix the problem? Will they ever respond to my request for them to include the error message? Who knows?

    Would a subscription system with functionality for individual tickets help tremendously? Well duh!

    The intent of this ticket was to get an auto-subscription of the ticket for the author of the ticket, not the author of the project it was assigned in.

    VERY important feature for any ticketing system, IMNSHO. I want it both as a project admin and as a user (of other projects).

    As a user, I'm currently stuck with monitoring the whole project for ticket updates, when I really only want to see updates on my own ticket.

    As an admin, I'm frustrated because I don't get responses to my followup questions.

    I agree that user should be subscribed to tickets they create (or at least have a little check box to subscribe like forum software provides) and it should inform the user of ticket status changes (fixed, invalid etc) as well as comments made on that ticket (such as the author requesting additional information).

    This should further be expanded to allow subscribing to individual tickets rather then all tickets for a project as tickets can already exists for a bug report but you still wished to be informed about changes to that ticket (once again author request more information or a work around maybe posted).

    I agree with Adirelle. In other words, not only should you be able to subscribe (or unsubscribe) to a specific ticket (and not be subscribed to all tickets for that project), there should be a user option that is enabled by default that auto-subscribes you to tickets that you create.
