Notification for post replies

I am not sure if this has already been suggested a thousand times over (as it should have), but I felt like I had to come in and say that TheVerge forums really need some new features. My biggest annoyance is that there are no notifications when someone replies to your post. It's not even a very difficult to implement feature. And if I have participated in some thread it's pretty irritating to have to go and see if there are replies every once in a while.

Any official word from TheVerge whether they are working on this feature?
