Centralized Notifications
« on: April 04, 2019, 11:40:01 pm »
Okay... So, the one thing I've noticed about these forums so far that I don't like is how the notifications are in three different sections. It makes it a pain to check at times. Plus, you can't change what you're getting notified of.

My suggestion is a centralized notifications button that pops up your notifications like many other sites have now. And having settings like being able to set your notifications. Say you want to notified when someone posts in a certain section, or they respond to a post you want to follow, but they don't want to see every single post that comes up, or they want to only be notified when they are mentioned. I think having a centralized and customizable notifications would make these sites so much easier to keep track of your posts and responses to the posts.

The greatest example was on Google+ (which is gone now), where you could respond to posts from notifications. I'm not expecting that it has to be that good, but just having a centralized notifications area or icon that one can see and click to go to the post would make things a lot easier, and being able to customize what notifications you get would be great for people so no one has to go through every post that posted to find something they want if they only follow one section of the forum or something.

Sort of have parts of that with a combination of these areas.

In your profile you can click on "Mentions" which shows you anyone that used @ mentions with option to be emailed.

For board/topic notifications you can see them under Profile -> Notifications

And last for who quoted there is a link in the header area in the top left called "Show who quoted your posts"

Ah. I see it now. Though it would be nice to have a centralized notifications. I think it would just be overall easier to access all notifications from one area.
