Something I have been meaning to mention for a few weeks…

The “Enable Like Notifications” option in the [Settings] tab of my Profile under “Private Messaging Options” is still checked (selected), but I no longer receive the “Like” notification at the top of the page to inform me that a member has clicked [Like this comment] on a comment I have made previously.

Is this true for everybody? If so, why was the feature removed & is this temporary?

If removed permanently why is the “Enable Like Notifications” still in the “Profile” [Settings] tab?

Thanks for your comments.

^^^^ i see what you did there, repeating your op so people could "like" your post - just to test it mind not rep/like begging in any way.

i don't think you need to worry about like notifications tbh

I don't worry about it... I am just curious if it is an issue with my account/usage or everybody's experience with the site is (now) the same. If the facility is no longer being used why is the option still in the Profile [Settings] tab?

in all seriousness afaik it only flashes up briefly when someone likes your post so you may just not have noticed it

I have never received a like notification. I understand I have been 'liked' but I have no idea what for. I've tried the setting on and off, nothing happens to me either way. Glad it's not just me!

When the facility was first introduced the banner at the top of the screen used to stay until navigating elsewhere (like clicking on the details in the header to see which comment had been 'Liked'). Moving to any another thread also cleared the notification.

I suspect when the "Flamedeer" &/or "Mobot.net" headers were introduced the "Like" notification got sidelined & it has not been reinstated (yet).

I hereby notify you that your comment was liked.

Do you feel any better now? ;)

Just checked it now. And it worked for me. You will only see it on one page and then it will be gone so if you didnt notice it that one time it wont be back.

Yes, I recall how it worked previously; the banner at the top of a thread (page).

Maybe I missed this instance by jumping into a thread at a specific comment after clicking on a hyperlink in an e-mail notification, then leaving the page without returning to the top, or closing the page completely.

OK, I'll monitor the situation for a while & keep checking the top of each page I visit before I leave.

You did find a problem earlier though didn't you? Was there an issue with showing the notification messages?

i guess using back button would skip these as it doesn't refresh the page?
if you:

go in a thread
someone 'likes'
use back - main page not updated in view but is behind the scenes
go into thread
missed notification

dunno really but i have only seen one in past few months (missed half!!!1)

...Three more "Likes" applied to my "Profile", & still no notification banners at the top of any page I have visited since the last comment I made above.

I have added a "Like" to brilly's comment above to see if it is just me with this issue, or it is affecting other members.

Has anybody who has seen "Like Notifications" (today) ever clicked the [x] (close) button on the other notification banners (such as informing on the introduction of the mobot.net site)?

i did click extra hard..

saw your one too
re back button it probably doesn't make sense but i sort of had the idea that if someone liked your post it would activate the banner on the next page you navigate to.
but if you went back instead then it would show page from history and then you go to your selected page it thought it had shown it already so it vanishes.
makes little sense i know :)

:) Maybe the issue is being worked on as we type.

I have noticed in the last two hours that submitting comments is taking anything from 5 to 25 seconds to action, & in one case (just a moment ago) my comment was not submitted at all. I had to submit it again before it appeared in the thread.

...or you are clicking too hard still & you're hurting the site now ;)

I purposely have not closed the "For Sale Forum Rule Update- Please view here" banner today, & have just received a notification ("LotusJas likes your comment").

Is this connected? Does the creation of a new site-wide banner somehow "reset" the individual comment notifications? If I close the site-wide banner, does this mean my Like notifications are also removed?

My post was deleted but it was a valid point - all of the likes were from the same person - might be why.

Your previous comment was deleted before I saw it in this thread. I believe, from the e-mail notification I received including the text you posted, that you were suggesting my Dad had added the "Likes". He has been dead for over 12 years. I don't think it was him.

On your subsequent post, no; the Likes were not from the same member. Even if they were, the comments that had been Liked would not be the same (but may be in the same thread).

Thank you for your input.

No problem. Of the likes received in that thread, 3 are from the same person. He's liked every post you made on page 2. You are right though - someone else has liked one of your posts since I checked. I'm not arguing that you had 3 likes, just that the bug may be down to them being from the same person. I'm sure you'd agree that the dev team needs any and all information that may help track down this very important bug.

Also, was your dad called Adam?

I had another comments (in other threads) “Liked” around the same time & have had subsequent comments “Like” thereafter. No more notifications though.

Why are you asking what my father was called? As you said, relevant facts are needed.

Regardless of whether your "important bug" phrasing was an attempt at sarcasm, the introduction of new site initiatives, the introduction/revision of site rules/guidelines &/or information relating to other related sites, may be being missed because the banners are not being displayed correctly.

You're welcome, Admin.

Do you (or any of your colleagues) know how many members are affected by this? Just me? Is it related to the other site banners, for example, the most recent additional of "New usergroup - forum helpers will now be helping to support the community and moderation team. Click for info"?

If it is just me then please divert your attention to other issues that have a great priority.

However, if others are affected, would it help if we started a clean thread & asked a few (selected) members to "Like" comments but also to add an additional comment of their own with the date/time the [Like this comment] link was used?

Then maybe I'm missing the point but isn't the system working correctly in this instance? The post date doesn't matter - you get the banner when you get a new like.

It's a shame you have such an attitude problem fanpages.
