26 notifications GAG, really?

26 notifications and all of them about questions people asked and I didn't even reply to. I guess the only solution is to unfollow people now... -__-

Stupid update GAG

Sooo stupid

Anyways I won't be here for much time during these next months so... whatever.

  • You can select which notifications you want to receive by going to your settings page, scrolling down to where it says "notifications" and then unchecking from the list the notifications you do not want to receive. Then click "save."

  • You can go into your settings and turn off the notifications for when someone you follow posts a question or myTake. It would have been nice to have some advance warning on this. The folks doing the revisions to the web site apparently aren't considering how changes will be received by the end users.

  • I second her opinion and double down on it. Where do you get the ideas you implement? I can't recall getting a single survey that would let you know what your users want. For all these useless changes, I see no basis. It's like you see us as your lab rats that you get to experiment with and we're a captive audience if we like the basic premise of the site.

  • Ha ha ha ha that's cute lol

    I got taken aback with this change too but guess we get used to whatever changes with time :) that's how we are.

    Customization is available in the settings though :)

  • Yeah I also had over 20, you need to go to your settings and "untick" the options you don't want to receive notifications for :D
    Otherwise the notifications are you nr 1 stalker hahaha!

    • This completely takes care of the Asker's concerns.

    • I complained because I didn't know it was available in the settings

      anyways it is annoying...

    • Oh trust me Asker, I'm not a fan of the recent changes either. The only one I like is the private opinions.

  • This update will kill at least 9 small children

  • Even if you can turn it off it was annoying to go and check each of the boxes you'd like to get notifications and then have to click on all the notifications to undo them (30 in my case).

    Point is most of the changes are useless and two of them are overly negative to the site.

      the others were tolerable, but this one... I just think it is annoying and quite pointless

      But yeah :/

  • How do we close an 'open question'? I have three questions well over 24 hrs old but can't ask another one because I have open questions. It's very annoying. Yes and all of the messages.

    • I had never heard about open questions

      Im sure this is part of the update...

  • Just go to settings and down to the bottom where you see notifications settings. Changed all the settings straight away lool all those unnecessary notifications were irritating me.

  • I know it's really aggravating. I logged on wondering why my notifications were blowing up only to see that none of it has anything to do with me.

    I don't care about some poll I answered a week ago

    • XD I was joking

      I am not going to unfollow anyone

      I was just trying to antagonize the GAG admins lol

      This was too much!

  • Oh, My Goodness, @HookingSwan, are you Leaving us Here, dear?
    Pick and Choose what you Want, Use the Setting that They say is Provided to Only Reply to What you Want But... Don't Unfollow anyone...
    Why do the Good have to Suffer with the Bad in GAG?
    Good luck. xx

    • Thank you

      I was joking about unfollowing
      Obviously Id never do that. But I just opened GAG and I had 106 notifications on account of this update

      I am not thinking of leaving. But I am tired of GAG. I won't be as active as I used to be

    • Show All
    • You and me alike @HookingSwan.. I firmly believe and feel, that my time here is almost to a close.

    • @SolitaireBond OMG!!! Take a small break but Leave your Lovely profile in case you come back in a little while.:)) xxoo

  • :D I'm actually happy to get notifications again. Since normally with gag I would miss 99% of any content people I follow post. Which makes me sad. So now that it's showing me a notification about them. I can see what they are actually talking about.

    • yes the problem is it fills up the notifications

    • That doesn't seem like a huge problem. I think majority of the notifications you can just go to settings and change it so you don't get them.

  • You can change what you get settings for at the bottom of the 'settings' page. :)

      That's it

      I am a bit tired of GAG these days

    • You and me alike @HookingSwan.. I firmly believe and feel that my time here is almost to a close.

  • lol. that is one of the only updates I actually like. it always annoyed me that I never knew when the people I follow asked questions considering I only follow people because I like their questions and/or opinions.

    • thank u

    • I am not off to anywhere

      I am just tired of GAG these days

      I still log in from time to time, but I am not as active as I was. I haven't been answering questions and this is the first question I ask in weeks, I think...

    • Me too. I got back from a 1+ month break just to find this. This site keeps going downhill. Since summer for sure. The analytics prove it. GaG used to be fun. But the site is losing functionality so fast, that I've also been on here much less too.

  • There is an option in the settings where you can change what notifications you get.
