scroll down to notifications and just untick the badge related stuff.

Wow - i can't believe this is still being asked - and I'm actually surprised by your answer, Ganoncrotch because that addresses the symptom and not the cause (which leads me to believe you don't know the answer either):

 - You need to go here: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/

 - At the top of the screen will be notifications regarding each badge you've earned.

 - You need to clear these, otherwise the notification will pop-up again each day.

I've asked this before, but if anybody knows a better way of informing people regarding updates and changes, I'm all for hearing about it. I know this particular issue has been asked and answered at least a half-dozen times, and it's still obvious that people don't know about it...  :(

I put Database, but when my modmarks idea gets added, that'll be my new favorite :P

Besides keeping them longer on the frontpage maybe a news article or also show them as sticky in hot topics

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Sounded like the person doesn't care about badge things since they left it go to 63 notifications about badges, not that he is clearing it daily and but just has left it go to the point where badges are all his notifications are about, my solution means he won't have to see badge notifications at all since I read it as someone who yeah.... isn't going to clear them one time nevermind daily.

My solution points to where he could control what aspects of the forum send notifications and he can use that to not just clear the 5 he gets each day but wont be flooded with them again in the future.

Just out of interest, with the current setup do the daily notifications push for offline members who earn a badge? So in a scenario where someone would have a badge added to their account while away from the site like the "didn't get modded for 10 minutes" badge, would they pile up a notification every day until they returned to vgchartz? or is it a push per day at login?



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Maybe there could be a section in the front page dedicated to site updates?

Of course, I like all the improvements, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the return and improvement of the game database.

This is (hopefully) a joke please don't get triggered Talon please

Edit: actually, I misread your post I guess I'm so caught up in all this stuff that I automatically read things as "this is an improvement I want" rather than "this is an improvement I liked". Carry on.

Are you implying Talon is easily triggered?

No, not really. He's been getting triggered easily recently, as a result of having not been triggered by this stuff for a long time.
