Marcel (Redmak) has tweaked the notifications drop down list in forums and the main page to show a lot quicker, had something to do with:

optimized the "setting notifications to read" query


After testing main page notifications, they now show after around 500ms (firebug) when before it was anything up to 2000ms.

We're also still working on locating the issues that cause slowdowns, these little tweaks go a long way to resolving the bigger picture.

Edit: Combined notifications isn't yet implemented on the forums, it's a bit down our "to-do" list

The combined notifications are an added bonus, personally I don't mind the current state. But I did notice that the notifications had slowed down in their response recently, I'm happy that it was being worked on! (Y)

Any chance for combined notifications for FPN comments?

I know I want to slowly stop posting there, so not really a long term issue for me, appearantly you guys want to help me pull out of FPN comments. :p

Other than that, everything seems pretty cool so far, I miss notifications on the mobile site on the front page...
Any news about that?

They were gone from the home page this morning for me, but now they seem to be back.

That would explain why I saw 2 envelopes probably?

It's seriously the best feature to be added lately IMO!

Yep, not getting notifications for any replies atm, checked the tick boxes and they are all set as they should be, and as they have always been

Any ideas ? I`m missing replies, last notification was yesterday and I've had a few replies today

I'm not having issues getting notifications. I am however experiencing an oddity. I've cleared cache on 3 different computers yet I still see 2 envelopes if I have a notification waiting. It looks perfectly normal until I get a notification, then it shows 2 open envelopes.
