How about a new button?

How about a button to add the curent user - if not TWikiGuest - to the list of Interested Parties.

It would work like the CommentPlugin in that it wold not require and edit cycle.

Option: Add the user to the list even if the user does not have permission to modify the content of the topic.

This would be a useful feature. This is TWiki.org specific, so should go into a TWiki.org specific Plugin. Spinning this idea further, this could evolve into a generic EventTriggerPlugin where users could specify action that fire off at certain events. Example:

Event Parameter Action
view addmetolist addformfield(InterestedParties)

The Plugin looks at page view time if there is a URL parameter named addmetolist (which can be provided by a form in the sidebar with a hidden input field containing the %WIKIUSERNAME% and a submit button). If the Plugin detects addmetolist, its value is taken and added to the InterestedParties form field.

The spec needs to be ironed out, e.g. what events, multiple parameteters, what actions, multiple actions, conditional actions (e.g. no action if TWikiGuest) etc.

I'd like to use an AddMeToInterestedPartiesButton on my sites too. A generic EventTriggerPlugin would be more useful, in time.

CrawfordCurrie has commented that he thinks his CommentPlugin could be extended to manipulate metadata as well. This could be a more generic solution.

Followup on the event trigger in EventTriggerPluginDev.

We have this feature now if we UseTaggingInsteadOfInterestedParties.
