Christ, man! 1999 notifications?! I think it's rare that I end up with 5 notifications after being away for a while. Although with that said, I am online pretty much every day, so I always see when the latest notification has come in.
Been "collecting" this now for a mere month or so for purpose of demonstration.
I have quote and like notifications, granted, but it's ridiculous how far this problem stretches...
Is my case an extreme one? Probably!
Is Neowin a geek forum and hence has some people on it with extreme usage patterns? Betcha!
Is Neowin catering with a fix towards this issue that renders a crucial feature of the board useless for power users like me? Yes.
Did this slow me down on forum activity? Yes, because I cannot be a***ed to check dozens of threads on new replies myself.
If we want to see forum activity rise again, maybe contributing and "spying" on the board should be easier again.
How about we sectionize the notifications site?
Something along those lines:
Tabs: "Replies to your threads" (including quotes of your contributions in your threads) - "Quotes for your replies" (in threads not created by you) - "Likes received" - "Other" (Someone added you as friend etc...)
edit: / addition:
2039 now by the way... Doesn't need further commentary... >_>
