    No BV it didn’t work – that is why I have just seen your post today LOL

    I do not get any notifications at all – none from posts or likes etc
    Please can I have my notifications back Mr Admin and can we have back the box to tick if we want to follow a post?  :cry:

    I keep getting a notification tag in the top right corner, but when I open it, it is totally blank. Is this just happening to me?

    Is there any way to delete all notifications at once rather than having to delete EACH one individually

    Regards

    The ’empty’ notifications for me are replies to topics I’ve started, so that may be the case for you as well, those who’ve got them. Likes, for me, are identifiable, but topic replies are blank as to names, with just the time notified.

    cm, yes, use the Bulk Actions option at the bottom of the Notifications, tick the top box then from the drop down list choose what option you want and click Apply. See image below.

    it comes up in red and the person is notified as long as the @name used is the same as the one in their profile, which isn’t always the same as the one used on the forum  :rose:

    And you can click on their name to find their @name in the middle of typing your post without losing it, as I’ve done it!  :yes:

    I can tweak the settings so that likes will no longer send out notifications. It cannot be isolated to a single member though so eveyone would be affected. If you want to vote on it please do and tomorrow I shall make it so. :unsure:

    Wiz, can we not already elect not to have notifications? Which would alleviate you having to change anything. I don’t get them by email so I must not have clicked on wanting them mustn’t I? I only see them once I’ve logged in.

    Can you answer my query about why sometimes when I see next to my name I have them but when I look they’re blank?

    you can opt out of receiving emails:

    drop down menu from your avatar on top right of screen

    ~ settings (at the bottom)

    ~ email (third option)

    ~ there’s a list of 5 options where you can opt to be sent an email or not

    @barjan I’ve not ignored you, I’m looking into this now. It’s difficult to determine what the notification is for as there is no name or description. The only way to be sure is through trial and error which will take some time but I will get to the bottom of it.

    The notification settings that can be toggled on/off for each member in their profile settings include:

    A member mentions you in an update using your @name
    A member replies to an update or comment you’ve posted
    A member sends you a new message
    A member sends you a friendship request
    A member accepts your friendship request

    It doesn’t include likes, these settings are global on/off for everyone.

    From what I have noticed, the blank notifications are only for responses to topics one has created, which used to say something like “You have a new response to the topic Cryptic clues from Fruitcake”. What happens now is as the screenshot below (click to enlarge). “sometime ago” simply means the topic response was within the last hour or so, though Likes and Messages seem to be able to give a specific time.
