    When users quote my as part of a response where they have quoted other people too; no notification pops up and I have missed responding to many conversations/ been accused of popping in and leaving without a response. Quote notifications seem to work only when a user responds exclusively to my post.

    I just figured that Tapatalk does notify even if the response is part of a multi-quote post. But, it would just be more elegant and streamlined if the web version would do it too.

    … three …

    … two, one. Yes, I see (at least) a failure to notify at http://forums.macrumors.com/profile.php?do=quotenotifications when I'm not the first person quoted. Screenshot attached.

    I half-expect this post to generate a notification.

    Yeah, I am on my iPad now with the desktop version of MR open. I have three notifications, but none of them from this thread. But it did show up in Tapatalk earlier. I know the two don't synchronize.

    Two observations:
    1. Tapatalk notified me and this time when I clicked on the notification (iOS); it actually took me to the quoted article. Earlier, it would just end up stating that the article couldn't be found - WIN!

    2. The website notification worked too - WIN!

    Thank you

    Jessica Lares should receive notification at http://forums.macrumors.com/profile.php?do=quotenotifications for this post; she's the first person quoted here.

    mtneer was the first person quoted in post 2. Not so in this post.
