I think I'd have a panic attack if I got an armload of emails for any little notification.

I hate emails. Makes me remember I need to interact with someone.

Was or is there an option to get email notifications for something like likes? As far as I can tell there are options to get email notifications for things like replies in watched threads, and new messages that you might be receiving, but it doesn't look like there are email notifications for something like likes.

More email into an already stuffed to the gills and overflowing inbox?

No thanks.

More to the point, what practical use would these notifications have?
Do you count the "likes" you receive?
Do they matter that much? ;)

Agree with every word.

Strange, i receive email notifications for posts in watched threads but not likes.

Are the forum message alerts insufficient?

It's a change to something that already existed though. For example, I used to get a notification after I made a post in a thread, that appears to have stopped. There's probably an announcement for what these changes are somewhere though, I'll poke around.

Notification about what? If more replies were made in the thread after you made yours, or something else? And notification on the site or over email?

As far as likes go, was there ever an option to get notified about those via email?

Strictly non-email site notifications (I never use email). Although, I did get one for this post so it appears to be working right now but it took a while to get it, maybe the notification polling times have changed? It used to be immediate.

You do realize we aren't just bots here on this forum? :p

Ah crap, I thought this place was sandboxed in my imagination. So all those private photos I sent to @AngerDanger might find themselves posted elsewhere?!

AD’s definitely a bot, though. No human would respond with “please, stop messaging me” or “dude, before I call the police, I’d really recommend seeing a doctor about that”. Plus he does boast a superhuman speed at generating GIFs.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced he’s sent from the future in some evil scheme I haven’t yet worked out. I’m onto you, you goddamn toaster.

Now if you’ll excuse me, the cheese has softened on the bench which means it’s time to take some more pictures in the mirror. Buckle up, AD!
