  • Question "Notifications" no longer "work" (light up) when you get new rep

    Used to be that when you received new reputation points, your "Notifications" link on the top bar used to light up - then click on it, and it would say either New Reputation Received and/or New Unread Message.

    Now, upon receiving new rep, it does not light up.

    Can't call this a bug; maybe this site made an intentional change to reduce confusion; I myself was confused a few times when my Notifications link was lit up and yet I had no PM in my inbox; one of the mods (LuJon I think) chimed in saying it was probably new rep; he was right. Then.

    But now it no longer works this way.

    Yea, I was noticing this as well. I kind of liked the "instant love" factor. Now I have to search it out. There must have been an update or something. I notice as I type a reply there is an auto save feature. That is new. I wonder if it works...

      Also missing is the thing that tells how long ago you were last on the site. Maybe it was cut with what you are missing also.

        Feed the Pet Rocks too

        Welllll...

        Dunno if it's a bug, a glitch, or intentionally modified for the forum.

        But at the end of the day, I can't say that I've ever been so concerned with Online Reputation Points as to:

        A. Worry that some light was or wasn't alerting me to any new points.

        B. Cared enough as to start a thread because Rep Points are sooooooo important in the grand scheme of things.


        Mayhaps some folks really are that desperate for validation.

        YMMV

              Dang, the system won't let me rep you hippie....must be a glitch? Just know it was the thought that counted and no, there won't be a light showing that I posted in response to your comment....

                I'll take a look in the settings and see what I can figure out. I don't think it was an intentional change, but maybe it's something I can adjust so that it gives notification as well.

                Speaking personally, I like the system and like getting the notification. It's nice to give a thank you without having to make a public post, and yep, it's nice to get them as well.
