quote ctrlI can see what you mean, but doesn't a notification get deleted from a persons list of notifications received, if they get on after the notification is deleted? Cos I'm pretty sure that's what's happened with meAnd for those of you that are for limiting the amount of notifications. It doesn't matter what you cap it off at because the user that made the mass notification can go back and edit their post, remove those being notified, and add in others. And the system will still notify those that were edited out of the post. So if they do a cap at 10, then all the user would have to do is edit out the first 10 in the list and then add in the next, and keep doing this until they have as many people notified as they want.
quote ctrlSo far that's basically what's been happening, where moderators get reports sent to them about a massive notification and then dealt with it.I honestly think that this should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis[size=1]
quote HraefnBrilliance.quote GuardianReaverI like this one, actually. Just knowing the title of the thread without needing to click on it makes the notification feature a lot more usable, imho.Hraefn +2 mentioned you in [Suggestion] Stop Excessive Notifications.

quote Fatal ErrorIt wasn't spam. Supers didn't say it was. Forum moderator didn't say it was. So memberating and accusing doesn't prove this suggestion anymore valid.Ctrl, you have used the feature to spam already. Notification bombing is spam. No reason to wait when an easy fix is just making some notifications optional.
quote HraefnI like the compromise of having it as "X mentioned you and # others in a forum message". I don't know about the highlighting, though. Also, I don't think auto-reading notifications is the way to go -- what if we don't log in again until a day or so later? We might miss out on some interesting or important notifications that way.
quote PritstickI think having some small detail that indicates you were mentioned more then the one time in the same thread could be helpful. I like the +1, +2, +x idea personaly. You could eventually have added utility and make it a pop down or expand so you can select different posts. So...Yes, "X mentioned you and # others in a forum message" seems like a good idea. Perhaps the auto read isn't a good idea (although maybe it could be an option?). I think the highlighting would make it immediately clearer which notifications are higher priority (ie. directed at you personally) than the others - the highlighted ones would be mass notifications and therefore probably less important for you to respond to... What don't you like about the highlighting idea?
