Does anyone actually like getting a notification to let them know asker upvoted their opinion?

it's annoying the hell out of me. I can see on my opinions tab that they upvoted me, the notification is just unnecessary.

  • no, I dislike it.

  • This is now optional; there is a setting in your profile/settings page

  • Drives me nuts. I'm like, "Oh, someone commented on my opinion!" and then it's like, "Oh wait, no, just the QA agreeing with me. Now I have to click on it and go to the question otherwise it won't ever go away."

  • Can't stand it👎👎 Showing that the asker upvoted is fine, but you don't need to notify, I'll live if I don't see it, haha.

  • It's a little annoying, but I still want it. It's nice to know when I'm earning an Xper point.

    Also, you don't always know if one upvote is theirs. Asker upvoting you is a little special because it confirms that you answered their question in a fashion they were expecting or wanting.

    • it can be shown under you opinion s tab. the notification is excessive.

    • Show All
    • I'm meant they should just show it that way.

    • Oh, okay. Yeah, I think that'd be a fair compromise.

  • yeah, like are we supposed to jump with joy after seeing the notification

  • Yep it's annoying along with this new green bar thing. I'm so used to blue and pink that the green kinda messes with my eyes

  • nope, I hate them. I see the notification and hope it's a reply/mention and then I'm disappointed because it's only an upvote :/

    • exactly. some seem to use the voting as an excuse not to comment on an opinion

    • wouldn't even say that. if I have 10 notifications and only 5 are replies and 5 are upvotes from the same person, then it's still a little bit disappointing. at least for me haha

  • I don't like it. It's just new spam to me.

  • It was annoying until I discovered you can just clear it without going to the question, it still seems pretty pointless though, @girlsaskguys I see this everywhere, maybe you should just get rid of it...

  • This must be a desktop thing because that doesn't happen on my phone. Maybe you should use the mobile site more often... 😒

    • No, you still get it on mobile. I do...

    • Show All
    • I'm on my phone.

    • Sorry, I thought you meant pop up notifications. The notification is small and can easily be cleared so it doesn't bother me. If I wanted to, I could simultaneously check if anyone else upvoted that comment.

  • I'm just ok with that. :)

  • No, I mean it's ok if they comment as well, then it takes both off. But if you have like 50 notifications and 35 are just upvotes...

    • exactly. it's just unnecessar. it would make more sense to move it to the opinions tab.

    • Yeah, I mean I do like getting upvoted of course. That indicates that I may have helped the asker. But sometimes it can be overwhelming. Not all the time, though.

  • Honestly, I don't care that much. It doesn't bother me, but I am also not particularly thrilled by it.
