I log in like after half a year later and I have nearly 2000 notifications unchecked... like wth happened? I remember clearing out my notifications tab before leaving, so I have no idea what's going on :/ Is it a glitch? If not how do I sort this out?
It could be any of the notification types we have now. If you don't want to go through them all, you can clear them all at once by going to your notifications page (click on the bell icon) and in the top right corner you should see a button that says "Mark all as read" which will clear all of your notifications. Keep in mind, this will clear your private message notifications as well so you may want to check those before you click the "Mark all as read" button.
Second, you can view all of the notification types and select which ones you don't want to receive anymore by going to your setting page on your profile and scrolling down to where it says "Notifications." There, you can uncheck the boxes of the notifications you no longer wish to receive. Then click "save." Hope this helps. :)
Oh goodness... we've had to review some settings as to what we liked to receive notifications for. By setting it to little more than messages, opinions and replies, these notifications are like before :D But the first time I turned GAG on after the update I also had 100 notifications in less than 24 h :-(
Nah that shit happened to me. I was gone for a few months. What happened they changed the notification system where like it would notify you if one of your followers would submit an opinion on a question. It was lame lol
(You can get to that page by hovering over the notification button and clicking 'view more notifications by the way, I think it's pretty simple but I figured it'd be better to be more direct. Also - welcome back!) :)
