Notifications [suggestion]

AidanAidan Clever idiotPosts: 948 Incredible Poster
Would it be possible to streamline notifications by having one notification per discussion, instead of one notification per reply to that discussion?

For example, if a post gets 5 replies, currently you'd get 5 separate notifications, one for each reply. I was wondering, if it's possible, to get one notification stating along the lines of 'there are 5 new replies to this post', clicking on which would take you to the first new reply.

I've recently come back to the mix after a bit of a hiatus, to 538 notifications waiting for me which gave me this idea :joy:

Cheers

    That sounds like an awesome idea. When I came back to The Mix after 3 months 2 weeks ago I had hundreds of notifications so something like what you said sounds much better.
    Thank you for the mods. The ones who make The Mix awesome. Thanks for all the support you've been giving. Who can live without The Mix? I'm asking your honesty. What would we be? Without a laugh and a friendly ear. For that's what I need. So I say thank you for the mods. For modding chat for usssssss.

    Yeah and some other sites have a similar system, it really helps you keep track of the different threads you're subscribed to and makes catching up easier

    Hey @Aidan

    This would be a great feature to have. I'll check with our tech team to see if this is an option on our discussion boards and keep you updated :) 

    Thanks again for the suggestion!

    Hey @Aidan 

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about this. Unfortunately this option isn't available on Vanilla at the moment, but we'll let them know this is a feature we're interested in and hopefully it's something they can create in the future. 

    If you have any other ideas, keep posting about them to let us know. We're always looking to improve things here :)
