    Thanks guys. Fancy helping me solve a puzzle while I am bored at Luton Airport? Will help us speed through a solution....

    Are notifications always triggering the yellow bell?

    Are notification always appearing in the drop down under the bell?

    Are notifications always showing on the see all notifications link (linked from the bell drop down)

    Is it any different the first or second time it happens in a thread?

    What is the delay from quote to notification being triggered?

    Is the issue any different for @tags or quotes?

    1. Yes they trigger the bell
    2. Weird things happen to the tray when I get a lot of different notifications. I think it was last night, I got home and I had 17 notifications, but I could only see the first 6 (highlighted with the light blue background), which is the limit for that pane without scrolling. This doesn't happen all the time though... I think it happened on 2 or 3 other occasions in the last week... I could see the rest when I clicked on view all notifications. My theory is that the notification box goes weird once there are more than 6, but it's just a theory. I will see if I can replicate this again and show you.

    My second theory is when you have many notifications and don't dismiss them by clicking on the notification to view the thread, that messes up the order and causes an offset(?).
    3. Yes they all show
    4. They still show, regardless of how many times I've received a notification for that thread
    5. Couldn't tell you i'm afraid, when I'm online I get them pretty much instantly
    6. Not usually on desktop when I receive quotes so couldn't say

    Might be worth investigating the issue in point 2 though...

    Usherette is my dupe and I must confess I don't believe I've ever used the account on my phone. One thing I notice though, sometimes when tapping notifications on my iPhone, I get taken to an article. I reckon this is my fault and I tap something on the pod when I press the notification. That's the only thing I noticed though. :s:
    Ah. OK. Thanks.

    Thanks. Good to see. I se you are on desktop. Wonder if there is a difference on mobile/different browsers?
    Mobile has been playing up recently- sometimes the notification drop down thing will be empty, and also sometimes when I get a VM the notification wont go away unless I click on it, rather than being on my VM page. I also clicked on a page about two hours ago and the layout was really odd, there was the person's avatar and username then a big gap before their gems, and the text was black instead of blue. The page refreshed and logged me out..Then there's that issue with the tags that's all I can think of

    Thanks. Anyone else seeing similar? Sounds like the latter problem could be a dodgy signal? Is that possible?

    Could be a dodgy signal, the page does occasionally just cut out and have to be reloaded (both on mobile and PC) dont think it's my WiFi though, on PC it says about some server/plug-in crashing though. Hope that helps
