I'm looking for a script that can notify a user about posts (by others) that include a link to their profile or any of their posts. Does one exist?

  • Not possible wit the API due to quota limitations. Use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. Commented Feb 24, 2014 at 21:39

    You could probably do this with a combination of search for profile links and /questions/{ids}/linked. Commented Feb 25, 2014 at 2:58
  • @BrockAdams is this still not possible?

  • @Tim, Something that's "close enough" might be doable on lower traffic sites. Pretty sure it will still bust quota on sites like Stack Overflow for at least some users -- especially when polling is factored in. Commented May 14, 2015 at 22:08
