News comments, no notification of likes

It's obviously not a big deal but I was wondering when getting notifications of likes to news article comments stopped. I get notified of replies, but not likes anymore. Intended?

As far as i know likes on news comments have never appeared in notifications. They've also never been counted with your forum likes.

I definitely used to get notifications of likes for them.

Hmm... I know you can get notifications for replies, but not likes. Is it really that important? :laugh:

They did occur when the board got upgraded, but it was removed fairly quickly (days). And a good thing too, I was getting a lot of notifications about that!

I'm pretty sure we never had notifications for likes on comments, maybe you're confusing them with forum likes? Likes on comments are counted toward you forum likes though afaik.

I actually think the new system is a wonderful idea ! Bravo for having the balls to change the formula. I've been using this site for many many years , mainly as an observer , I like reading the flame wars and the front page news.

 

 

Generally, post counts mean zero and are just for the posters ego and have little bearing on teh  tech knowledge that they may / may not have. I could be a new member with 1 post and a coder for Microsoft, whereas an older member could have 14,000 posts and work in a burger bar.... get my point ?

 

To the people complaining about the change ..... GROW UP and act like the adults you pretend to be . Seriously I was crying with laughter at the begging posts made by certain individuals in this thread. So thanks for the lulz.

 

I like the way the site is changing and the direction its heading . I will be buying a sub as soon as I get paid , I wont be posting , just reading as usual. I fully support sites that have a positive and clean outlook.  Nice touch with the staff  names as well.

 

I look forward to the future changes the site has to offer :D

For what it's worth I do get notifications for likes. I always thought that was intended.

I could be wrong but I am almost completely certain that I used to get notifications of any reply and like of front page comments. Now I'm not sure when this was happening, perhaps after an upgrade or when it stopped.

 

Anyway, like I said, I'm not bothered by it in the slightest but I did like the notifications.

If it was broke, the option to notify for likes on news comments would still be there, but it clearly isn't.

Ah ok, I missed that part. I never realized they were separate. :)

Ugh missed that we also added  a feature people wanted, you can disable notifications to replies of comment threads you participated in, very handy! :p (not replies to your own comment, which is separate)
