I've noticed that I don't always get alerts on threads. Especially when I'm quoted 

Is thus normal?

    Yeah. There are no alerts for quotes. I think it was like an unwritten rule or maybe written somewhere to tag someone when you quote them. Sometimes I Dont get notifications when I'm tagged as well tho. Not sure why on sometimes that don't work and sometimes that does. But yeah quotes Dont work at all 
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    That's correct @Salix_alba_2019 - there's no notification mechanism for quoting. Like @Shaunie says, we tried to make it a soft rule that people tag when they quote to make sure people are notified. You can do that by adding an @ to the name in the quote (as above), or just in the post itself. :)

    Do you have notifications enabled for 'when people mention me'?

    Yeah just sometimes doesn't work. (I know sometimes someone tags you they might not do it right with the link to your account may not show up and then Dont get notification but I always check if the link to my profile worked and sometime it does but just didn't get notification.) Obviously works more times than it doesn't though but yeah it's fine just small thing

    Interesting @Shaunie. I wonder if sometimes people edit your tag to fix it, so it looks right when you check it, but because it wasn't right originally maybe it doesn't notify?

    How often do you find it happens?

    I don't get notifications for being tagged in threads. My settings are so I should I believe.
