i've posted a few times that notifications were busted. haven't seen anything else about it, and was wondering if i was the only one. because i didnt see any other topics about it, i thought i should mention it.

could be most don't know of it, so aren't missing it.

i recieved one notification, when someone @'ed or quoted me in the beta, and none since the scene changed. seems neat, i was enthusiastic about it and would like it to work.

I don't know if this is related,but I remember that when you publish 2 blogs in one day,you should get the latest one showed up as well

right below that Kuro-chan image,the notification of the recent blog I wrote yesterday did not appear

#3 Posted by RobotOpBuddy (65108 posts) -

The notifications in the top right do appear to have stopped working, at least partially - some notifications I never receive, sometimes I just can't view them (red bar pops up at the top basically just telling me something went wrong). That said, I've had 2 notifications get through since the site relaunch after the beta was over, so it has worked since the beta ended/relaunch at some point at least.

@robbristow: I've noticed mine to not be working at all. They were at first, but no more

I received two notifications from the same person about a new blog they posted. Since then...silence.

#6 Posted by leon2365 (13053 posts) -

I get them from time to time. then again, I don't know if its because I rarely get tagged, or if they are just not showing up.

Are the notifications on followed games (and the entire followed games functionality) gone? I'm getting no notification and I don't see how followed games got filtered into the new site. Is the games wanted stack supposed to take it's place?

#8 Edited by tempura13 (475 posts) -

I haven't got a notification since the new site launched. Not following much anyway, but still...

#9 Edited by OmitName (721 posts) -

my interest in the feature applies more in being acknowledged in a conversation so that i may reply. are notifications meant to alert of the events of followed things?

i suppose that makes good sense. the feed as it stands only has the one page. you'd be bonked proper trying to keep up on a busy day.

Broken here too. When the site first switched over, I got a notification because someone quoted me in a topic but haven't gotten one since even though I have been quoted in other topics since.

Seemed like it would be really helpful to know when people responded to you.

#11 Posted by Bl4ckSunr1se (3 posts) -

yeah! me too! I used to get a notification on each of the 17 games I'm currently following with the old website, but I haven't received a single one with the new website!

#12 Posted by EXODYS (194 posts) -

My notifications don't work anymore after the new site. Even new games where I choose "Follow" don't give me any updates :(

#13 Posted by Bl4ckSunr1se (3 posts) -

seems to me gamespot is not at all interested in our comments! it's been almost a month now and nothing's changed! :( thinking about moving to another blogsite

No, i don't think that's the reason. I'm using chrome. But there was for example a post about 'thief' on october 9 but nothing showed up in my notifications

well it is pretty widely known that notifications on games are not working. if that's all that you are looking into at the moment, then I would definitely see why it would seem like gamespot is not interested in our comments. as for notifications of people quoting and mentioning you, those seem to be fine.

What he said. They don't work. We're about to make them work. Hang in there...

Just let me receive updates on games I am following, is that really so much to ask?

#19 Posted by FireSpirit117 (1981 posts) -

I haven't received any user blog notifications since the layout change even though I have that turned on.

Nope. It'll happen. Soon...

@edgework:

Excellent news, Edge. I've been waiting for this to get fixed since the site went live. Best and most useful feature is always the last to get addressed. Par for course.

I think people who come here for user reviews would disagree with you... There are other things to be fixed after notifications too. For the most part its a netops issue really.

#23 Posted by leon2365 (13053 posts) -

good to hear that it will be fixed soon.

@Shimonhead said:

@edgework: I'm not really interested in whether people who come here for the user reviews would disagree with me any more than they are interested in people who come here for the followed game notifications disagreeing with them. The notifications are the most important thing to me and that's all I care to see fixed in a faster manner than they have been. They are free to prioritize in their own heads what is most important to them.

You GO Gurl !!!

@edgework: Wow. Nice inventive comeback. At lest the notifications work for that.

:) settle down... it was a joke. your stuff is important, his stuff is important, her stuff is important. It all has to be prioritized.

@edgework:

Alright, I apologize. Is there any timeframe predicted to when they will work again?

Probably a first pass will go live by Dec 1. That will just "make it work" Then we'll do a second pass to make it awesome. Same way we're doing User Reviews.

#31 Edited by leon2365 (13053 posts) -

edge has good "crowd control" skills.

#32 Posted by Zilberts (29 posts) -

Same here, haven't got a single notification about my games I'm currently following, though I've added some after the enw website launch as well. Don't think they can't notice this though, so this'll probably be tended to in the near future or reversed back to how it was before by Gamespot, haven't seen them be completely negligible about problems in the past anyway, so it should be all good.

#33 Edited by leon2365 (13053 posts) -

yes. all we can really do is be patient. especially since gamespot will be trying to cover every square inch on the new consoles launching.
