It is very annoying I signed in and I saw 17 notifications. Most of them were "asker has up voted your opinion". Great you like my opinion put a banner next to the like but don't send me a notification.
Yes I can see how it would be annoying for someone who was away for a while but I think we are in honeymoon period and people are upvoting on old questions soon you will only be getting upvotes from your last active session so it won't be so bad. I think it is good because you can look at it and think I answered 30 questions yesterday and got 15 upvotes then you know you are doing something right.
Haha yeah if you do your best to give good opinions and get lots of upvotes, you need to click them away one by one... maybe it would have been a better idea to make them visible though a click on a menu item. Not automatically... now you have 6 new posts and 15 upvotes :o I like the user upvote idea since it rewards good opinions. But it needs fine tuning :D
Nah I think the constant pestering by companies and their featured takes and polls are the most annoying. Also this "guys only/girls only" bullshit.
Yes ! I get excited thinking i am going to read a comment. I am so disappointed when i am notified about an upvote. I am indifferent towards getting upvotes or downvotes. I appreciate the xper for the askers upvote, but i would much rather it just be added to my account than be notified about it
