Hi sis, I have noticed with the notifications it does not tell you when someone post to a topic that you have posted to, I have auto notifications turned on but I only got a notification if someone alerts me in a post or give's me reputation in a post. I really on notification's on the site to keep up with things more than I do a email notification. THANK YOU

 

LATER SIS

Hi again @DAWN, by default, the following two notification options are toggled off. I have switched them on for you. :)

  1. New content for things I follow
  2. Someone comments on something I follow

If you do not want Email notification, feel free to toggle them off in the Notification Settings. When you're on that page, scroll down to see all the notification options.

Thank you both for this thread as I was about to post a similar thread. I am off to explore the options, but wouldn't it be better to have site notifications turned on by default to any answer in a thread we participated in? Just my idea. :)

Hey, email notifications are turned on by default for the following, hence the site notifications (bell icon) for these are turned off to avoid redundancy:-

  1. New content for things you follow
  2. Someone comment on things you follow

But since there's more than one request/suggestion and I can understand not everyone checks their email inboxes for such notifications, I have now made this a site-wide features and make sure yours are switched on too. :) 

As for other less important types of notifications, they are only site notifications by default. So, whether you want it to be email notifications, site notifications or both, you can simply set them at your Notification settings page. ;)

On the same Notification settings page, remember to also ensure the followings are ticked:-

  1. Automatically follow new content I post
  2. Automatically follow content I reply to

And to everyone else, keep suggestions coming, we'll do our best for you. <3

Thanks for the complete answer @SElf :neo::newrussian:

I was checking the notifications settings page and the clicks are in all the right places as you mention: " Automatically follow new content I post" and " Automatically follow content I reply to", as well as " A notification when new content is posted". I am guessing those changes are just in effect now right, as today I only had quote notifications. Maybe no one else posted on my threads also, who knows. :)

I think notifications are easier to follow our content rather than e-mail. Any more suggestions I'll post them right here. ;)

@to7update yep, I tick those (Automatically follow) for you yesterday. :P Unfortunately older members will have to toggle those on by themselves (I can bulk change this via database but I don't think all existing members want it, so I better leave it for them to decide). The reason being that the forum software was shipped with those two settings off by default.

I have only recently (a few weeks ago) installed a forum plugin to enable those by default for newly signed up members. So, prior to that, the two "Automatically follow" options were off by default.

OK, so thanks for doing those for me yesterday. :P I don't think I am receiving any notifications though, apart from "mentioning", "quote" and "reputation". Maybe you could just answer to this thread as a test to see if I receive a notification? Thanks! :os-tongue:

Did you mean site notifications? Have you scroll down through the entire notification settings page? :)

Did you see all these? :)
