Instant notifications

  • Which means not by mail and not just adjusting the numbers on your profile page.

    Right now we seem to have a pop-up type of such. Right?
    I'm quite comfortable with that. But...

    Are they clickable? I seem to haven't had a chance to check that - because they seem to be significantly delayed.
    That's my [first] issue. By the time a pop-up notification appears, I've already loaded a few subcategories, entered the thread, read the reply and am typing mine. It seems like more than 10 seconds at the least (most probably more - up to a minute? more? I couldn't/didn't measure that - but it feels/seems rather "amountable").

  • Are they clickable? I seem to haven't had a chance to check that ...

    I've done that.
    I had a whole bunch of such notifications when I started the browser. I had a chance to click on only one, though:) Are they displayed the earliest at the bottom perhaps - or did I miss something?

  • I just caught something.
    Just had starred a discussion (topic), and then got two pop-ups for one single comment in it: one - "S*** commented on your thread", the other - "S*** commented on your starred discussion". I wish it will be put into the dealing list and handled appropriately.

    Hmm, what's the meaning of starring your own thread? You will already receive notifications for comments on your own threads so you don't need to star them.

  • I'm not actually using notifications.

    And I have a right to star whatever I want/need.

  • The "notifications" have become tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo laggy.
    Twice at least I got some on comments that I read and "discarded" in my PREVIOUS session here, in another browser.
    We're talking not minutes - hours! Huh?
    :confused:

  • I use the starring as a means of flagging threads I've participated in. Sometimes the notifications don't arrive for eons, and other times, they appear and disappear in a moment, so starring provides a good way to get back to certain threads. Another issue is "sinking" threads... in a few days time, they can move multiple pages deep into the index, and it's hard to find them quickly otherwise - stars stand out immediately and give a quick lookup to threads I've participated in.

  • It's all nice, but what do we have these notifications for?
    :confused:

  • Just installed uBlock, and on this site, it immediately started blocking stuff.
    First of all, I noticed a "1" there, opened 'the logger', and found some https://forums.opera.com/dashboard/notifications/inform in there...
    I don't get how to use all that there yet. :|
