New Notification Settings (UPDATE - 4/26/18)

Forums - Website Topics - New Notification Settings (UPDATE - 4/26/18)

I'm adding new notifications to the website (along with the ability to enable/disable them, as well) - these are not entirely complete yet, nor is this the final list of things that will have notifications enabled for. I also plan on expanding the information presented in the notifications, as this functionality continues to be improved. @Bandorr 

The notifications I've added so far are:

 - GameDB entry successfully submitted to the queue  (working)
 - GameDB entry approved  (working)
 - GameDB entry rejected  (working)
 - Tracked Game update  (not working yet)
 - Cheat Request notification  (not working yet)
 - New Round added to Prediction League  (working)
 - Round closing soon in Prediction League  (working)
 - Round closed and paid out in Prediction League  (working)

All of these notifications are disabled as the default - if you want to change any of these settings, they can be found here:

       Profile Settings -> Preferences -> "Receive Notifications for the following events:"

 

As always - if you find problems with any of this or have ideas for ways to enhance or improve, this is the thread to tell me so!!!  :)

 

 

UPDATE #1
Ok - so I lied about all of these notifications being disabled by default. I decided to enable the Prediction League ones by default, in order to bring more visibility to that functionality. Of course, you are absolutely free to disable these notifications at any time!!!

Ah, nice

I have a few other ideas too, like this:

- Notification for birthdays of people on friends list
- Notification for specifically tagged "notification threads (announcement threads)"
- Notification for being quoted in a post



awesome, thank you :D

I like this one a lot. Sometimes I get quoted, and it's near the bottom of the VGC Buddy, and I wonder how many I may have missed. I'm not even that prolific of a poster, but some of our members that are could really benefit from this.

And as usual, thanks Talon.

A good idea to add some new notifications, nice one



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Another great addition. I think I'll turn off all of those DB ones. I enter way to many things in a short period of time that it'll be so many notifications.

I like the prediction league one though, should help bring people to it and hopefully keep it active.

If I may suggest another notification, I noticed I never got a notification when someone commented on a review in the DB I wrote. Would be a nice addition to have.

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Ah that's exciting. I entered quite a few records with only few being "approved".

Now I will know they were successfully submitted, and if they were rejected.

Also I don't think the @ worked. I stumbled upon this thread by title alone. Nor any notification or color.

  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I used the @ in the official NHL Thread recently on about 6 people, and it worked on nobody.

User Reviews? They should DEFINITELY be generating notifications if somebody comments on them as I specifically added code for that (that, and any up-votes a User Review gets) - if that's not working, I want to know. An example will help...

I don't see anymore in queue, but they might have been "claimed" by another admin, who is slowly churning their way through and validating. I would wait a bit.

Yeah - I'm guessing I neglected to code for the @ mentions in "new threads". It should still be working for any replies, though...   ...I'll have to check that out at some point.

I have no problem waiting. Also I may suggest a notification when one is "claimed". Since that puts it in a middle ground between "accepted" and "rejected". Whenever you want.
