Quote Notifications Don't Seem To Work....

    when you're quoted in a post that has multiple posts and you're not the first member quoted. Anyone else notice this or know if its a known problem?

    Why would you want to be notified every time you're quoted. I'd get a hundred emails all day just for the quotes.

    Cause I missed a few and didn't answer someone's question. I don't get any emails. I just see the notification icon on the computer.

    Huh... I've never gotten any emails from quote notifications.

    I noticed the same before. It's quite annoying within threads that move along quickly so I have theoretically to go back and read every post made to eventually continue a discussion.

    Strange, I'd bet it is shown on 'my' mobile site. PMs, friend requests and quote notifications were all included within that number at the top.

    Yup, you're right. Its right there. How did I ever miss that?

    I have an example from today. This post has multiple quotes in it and I didn't receive a notification, nor does it show up in Quote Notifications under User CP.

    I haven't received a notification for a quote in said post as well. Would be awesome if this could be fixed.

    btw. I'm quite sure Kissaragi (first quote) got notified.

    I've noticed this behavior as well.

    I have noticed this as well. I've missed a bunch of posts that quoted me this way. I thought it might be due to the new mark as read changes conflicting with auto merge, but am not sure this is the case.

    Mr. McMac

    I find the quote notifications are delayed. Not sure how long though. This has been happening for a while now.
  16. macrumors 68020


    Normal quote notifications are delayed. These multiple quote ones, never come at all.
  17. macrumors 68040


    When I'm the first quote within a multiquote, I receive a notification - when I'm not, I don't. That's how it has been since I'm a member / can remember ~ one year.
  18. macrumors 68020


    There's more: I believe that if you are the first quote and there are say, four more in the post, you will get FIVE notifications. It seems this site wants to send five different notifications but they wind up going to the same person.
  19. macrumors 68040


    What a nice coincidence: at first, I thought I experienced it differently, but this post of yours containing two quotes, the first one being mine, gave me two notifications indeed.
  20. macrumors 604

    Yes, I can confirm that I have seen this too.
  21. macrumors 68020


    That's weird timing. ;)
  22. macrumors 68040


    You set me up!

    And here, they did it again! Now, is there actually some way to fix this?? I wouldn't mind too much if people just keep on quoting me first, but I do feel pity for those underachievers...they miss out a lot of good stuff most probably!
  23. macrumors 68020


    I wish I was that clever.

    I always get double quote notifications...
  25. macrumors 68020


    I notice this all the time as well. Would be nice if MR can get to the bottom of it sooner than later. Thanks :)
