Is it possible to change the wording on the profile settings?

"Receive node follow-up notification e-mails"

"Check this box to receive an e-mail notification for follow-ups on your nodes (pages, forum topics, etc). You can not disable notifications for individual threads."

Users don't know what a 'node' is and if you don't have a forum or pages, then it's not good to reference those as examples. I think this is a poor in terms of usability.

Yes, that can definitely be improved. Can you suggest a specific change? That makes it easier to discuss and fix.

I used String Overrides to change the following...

From:
Receive node follow-up notification e-mails

To:
<strong>Receive <i>content</i> follow-up notification e-mails</strong>

The <strong> tags were added to match the other comment notify header that immediately follows. This might be unique to my theme. The <i> tags were added to emphasize the difference in wording between this option and the one that follows (which is about <i>comments</i>)

I also changed...

From:
Check this box to receive an e-mail notification for follow-ups on your nodes (pages, forum topics, etc). You can not disable notifications for individual threads.

To:
Check this box to automatically receive e-mail notification of comments on content you've created (articles, forum topics, polls, etc). You cannot disable this on a post-by-post basis.

Of course the mention of articles, forum topics, and polls is unique to my site. But I do like the phrasing "notification of comments on content you've created". Seems very clear and specific to me.

Just my suggestion. :)

This is a need for me as well. Certainly want to remove the word from node from users learning curve.

Could even just change it to:

Receive content follow-up notification e-mails.
Check this box to receive an e-mail notification for follow-ups on your content. You can not disable notifications for individual threads.

The words "(pages, forum topics, etc)" is bad depending on what modules and content types the site is used for.
If you want to get fancy you could include the first 2-3 content types available to the user.

Here's another go at it via a clone rather than a drush and git init...

Is it just the version that's causing them to fail?

Thanks, doublejosh - now committed http://drupalcode.org/project/comment_notify.git/commit/43cccaf
and 7.x http://drupalcode.org/project/comment_notify.git/commit/d389b5a

I'm not sure why the tests were failing. It also didn't apply - I just manually applied it since the change was trivial.

@greggles Thanks! Feels good to have a commit in this project.
