Hey, I really apologize for the past week. Having the notifications not working for so long has been pretty annoying for everyone. Obviously some stuff is tough to test with a small group of engineers vs. tens of thousands of users, but I recognize that that is no excuse.
On the bright side, we pushed out a bunch of fixes today to the entire system. If you're willing to give us some fresh feedback on the system now that it's theoretically operational, please use this thread to do so. Be sure to double-check your notification settings to ensure that they're checked off as you like before reporting bugs, though! We're especially interested in hearing if specific notifications aren't being sent when they're checked off in your settings, or if notifications are being sent to you even though they're checked off in your settings. We've been pounding this stuff pretty hard over the past few days, so we think it should be functioning properly, but obviously with thousands of people looking at it you're sure to see stuff that we missed. Please let me know in this thread as to the existence of any outright bugs.
- Quoting a user who has quoted you will result in you sending a notification to yourself. Filed a bug.
- Sometimes notifications will appear under the flag even though it displays a 0. I think it's taking some time to cache. Will keep an eye on it.
