I haven’t noticed any unusual behaviour. Have you set the preferences like so:
In a topic
- sends notifications (and email) when anyone replies to that topic.
- no notification is sent, just an unread counter is shown on the site.
By default, you watch your own topics.
In your notification preferences
(Click your avatar in top-right → → “Notifications” on the sidebar)
The default is “First time a post is liked and daily”.
When it comes to replying, you’ll get notified if someone replies directly to your post using ,
If someone uses the general topic then notifications would only be sent if you’re watching the topic.
When you post, you can set your preference to watching if you want notifications for each reply:
You should get notified if someone
@mentions your name or if they link to your topic/post.
So that’s how it works - does this help spot the notification behaviour?
