I logged in this morning and what a surprise. On top of my many notifications, I now have to answer messages included in this, so I don't lose track of anything. I usually answer my messages after I do my notifications. It's a pain because also, I am seeing, someone will continue the message as I am trying to get rid of my notifications.
How many here like this new notifications change where messages are now included with other notifications?

Private messaging notifications were moved there for multiple reasons.
1. We want all notifications to be in a single area of the site.
2. We recently made private message notifications compatible with the push notification feature for Chrome and Firefox users on desktop and mobile (Android only for now) so it made sense to put those private message notifications with all of the other notification types.
We are aware that some members don't like having the notification appear twice (on the bell icon and under your username menu) so that is something we plan on working on. :)1
