At this point it's difficult to tell whether the notification system will ever be returned to it's former glory or not. Today, I found options in the user settings that allow you to select which platforms to receive updates for. I'm hoping these will count as notifications but I haven't gotten any so far.

If it works then it's a step in the right direction but at the moment there's little reason to think the above situation will improve any time soon.

@Gamer_4_Fun: looks like he's too review-happy for doing nine in one shot,unfollow him if he's getting to your nerves. Basically in my evaluation to the reviewer's profile,the reviewer seemed to have missed a lot of fun back in the Old Site

That's a real shame. One of the more unique features of this site (IGN is the only other site that I know of) is severely broken all for a more sleeker and modern look, which ironically is not helping the site according to Alexa.

More coders should be hired or get better ones, no site redesign should take this long.

notifications should work fine (apart from game notifications which don't work for anyone ATM). its most likely the person that wrote so many reviews.

Ratings show up as reviews, so this guy might have just had a lot of games to rate

Notification are broken. I haven't gotten a single game related notification since the new site started up.
