Default Notifications

When I first started notifications were different and then you made it change?But now it says I have notifications but when I click on it nothing is there and so I have to manually try and figure out what happened.

In my experience, most blank notifications are from when someone responds to or mentions you, but then their post is deleted. The notification is sent out when the post is made, but not rescinded when the post is deleted, leaving a blank notification.

That is probably what is happening to you. As far as I know, there hasn't been any recent changes in the notification system, so that seems like the most reasonable answer. Though having a bit more information about the problem would also help, especially if you believe deleted posts isn't the cause of your problems.

This is correct. If a post is deleted, or several posts are merged, it will appear as 'Deleted Posts' in your quotes/mentions. If that isn't the case though please could you provide a screenshot the next time this happens?

I could have sworn there was a drop down list before on the first day i joined, that listed all the types of notifications with a 1 or 0 next to it or something like that, but now it just says Your notifications : 3 and when i click on it, it says there are no new subscribed threads. Perhaps one was deleted, but i'm pretty sure one was a quote that hasn't been deleted and even if all of them were deleted, i can't get rid of the number 3.

There have been no changes on our end. Could you provide a screenshot please?

When you click on 'Your Notifications' it should bring up a little pop up box like this:


If you click on the one where it shows you have notifications it should bring you to the appropriate place on your profile so you can see who quoted/mentioned/messaged you.

Yeh it doesnt show the list. It just says your notifications and then a number. There is no list and the only thing you can do is click on your notifications. For the first few days it did show me my notifications when i clicked on it but now it is not and yes I would very much like the list back

Are you using a mobile or a computer to view the site? From my experience I find it harder to view my notifications via mobile, and the list does not actually show up underneath compared to the normal computer version.

If this is the case, I often need to swipe right (it actually goes off of the boundary of the website which can’t be done unless I am viewing the notifications) and the list shows there rather than it’s normal spot. I’m not really sure why it does this, maybe because it is being shown on a mobile platform.

If not, as said above try and provide a screenshot.

What if I phrase it this way: The notifications that should scroll down and show the different notifications isn't doing that.

What device/browser are you using?

As said above, sometimes if you're on a mobile device you need to scroll to the right to see the drop down.

Mine is still doing the same for Google Chrome on a computer, but I can get it to drop down for IE. But I normally use Chrome so why is it doing that?

Hi,

Since we're talking about notifications here, is there a way to view previous/past notifications? Like Facebook for example that keeps a notifications history.

From your profile you're able to see all private messages, visitor messages and where people have quoted/mentioned you so I guess that's kind of like a history of your notifications? Unless you mean something different?

Thanks for answering! Yeah I know about that, I was just wondering if there was a place (like a dropdown menu) to see all the past notifications. I guess there isn't then but thanks anyway
