Hey everyone, I seem to be experiencing a glitch which has only started today. You know after you post something in a thread and when someone quotes you, on the top right of the notifications tab it'll show you a number telling you how much people have quoted you in a post.. well yeah it doesn't seem to be doing so right now.

About 4 people have quoted me in different threads so far, and yet on the top right of my screen on the notification tab the number still remains at 0, as if no one new has quoted me.

Come on Gamespot, treat me better than this for I lurrrrrrv you. Any help would be appreciated, Is this just a glitch?

Alright Gamespot Staffers it's up to you now. 2 people are also reporting the problem and who knows how many others are experiencing it too. Without that old Gamespot layout where it told you how many people have posted a message since your last post, and now with the new system of notifications not working. It's very hard to keep track of what you've contributed in.

In case you're wondering I'm using Internet Explorer 11. Not using chrome or Firefox and I don't plan to, I've deleted my cache history etc. but it seems like the issue is on your side Gamespot. Thanks for any assistance we may get.

This is getting ridiculous and I'm starting to really lose my patience here. Why make a whole forum dedicated to bugs and feedback when you don't even offer any advice or assistance?

Relax man, don't expect a reply. This forum ain't what it used to be. It's not like we're paying to use it anyway, so eh.

I'm sure they're working on it. Hopefully.

True, true. But still we're the people that keep Gamespot together, the community has helped it grow to what it's become today. Not to mention with the old Gamespot a lot of people had a paying subscription to use unique features on this site, so time to put that money where their mouth is.

everybody thinks so at some stage in their life.

But it's bad enough when it happens in real life and a gaming forum... does anybody want to play sad violin music?

Lmao @elkoldo I've got to admit bro, I'm starting to lose hope. I've got no way of remembering what threads I've posted in (yes I've posted In that many) and the notifications were a good reminder when someone quoted you. So I think I'll have to pull out the good ol' pad and pen and write down every thread I post in, for memory.

#20 Posted by elkoldo (1800 posts) -

@BattleSpectre: (Needless to say I didn't receive any notification as you replied to me, pretty goddamn sure you ain't gonna receive it either as I'm replying to you) Yeah , I'm getting desperate too.So there are no mods here to hear us out when we need them(we've been asking for them for over two days !) , but if a user goes to off-topic and makes a porn thread , a million mods will pop up in a split second and airbrush both the user and the thread out of existence.

I really can't remember where I posted either ,I don't post that often , but I got a real weak memory for stuff like this.

"So I think I'll have to pull out the good ol' pad and pen and write down every thread I post in, for memory." haha, yeah ,lol.I guess I gotta do that too, best course of action under the circumstances !

@elkoldo: I didn't get a notification either now that you just replied to me =[

But something weird just happened to me before, I did receive a notification from when Black-Knight replied to me but that was 13 hours ago and I only got it now. Since that happened more people have quoted/mentioned me in posts but I'm not receiving anymore notifications, so somewhere in the system it's glitching.

Also so true about that porn scenario, makes me laugh.

Edit: I've just received 5 more notificiations from different people right now, including yours. Better late than never I guess I just hope it's resolved now.

@BattleSpectre: Hey at least you got a notification ,though 13 hours late, good for you, 'cause I ain't got nothing for 2days.

You know what Ford ? I'm heading to Off-Topic now to commence the porn scenario.Just to see what happens.Don't miss the fun !!!

BREAKING NEWS : I received two notifications just now , as I'm writing this, maybe I'll postpone the porn operation !

Edit : Just received your notification ,too ! I guess they're fixing this !

#23 Edited by BattleSpectre (7989 posts) -

@elkoldo: Omg YES I just got another notification from you now. It seems like the issue is fixed for the moment. Also please don't do the porn operation, although I laughed hard at the idea I don't want to see you get perma-banned.

@BattleSpectre: It's safe to say that the problem is resolved , for now at least.i got your last notification.

Alright , you got it.I won't.But I swear I was mad enough to do it ten minutes ago ! ;)

@elkoldo: You know what, this still isn't good enough! I want a moderator/Staffer to acknowledge the mistake and apologise for it. I want blood shed on this day, no one shall walk away without battle scars!!!!!

PS: I just thought of a splendid idea, we should both continue to reply to each to stress test the fix.

@elkoldo: This is very weird, I finally got both your notifications but they came late. Maybe they're fixing this as we speak, still progress is progress can't complain too much. They'll need more than just an apology after this, maybe a whole cake.

Your thread, you do the honors.

Thanks for asking Elkoldo, my notifications have been working great so far. Big shout out to the gamespot fairies who fixed this issue.

Also don't worry all is good, I logged off about that time anyway.

Sorry for not responding earlier, everyone!

If this isn't fully resolved for everyone here, though it seems like it is, then it will be when we release a comprehensive reworking of our notifications system this week.

@BattleSpectre: Gamespot has been broken like this for over 2 years now(for me anyway). When I first started out on gamespot, I always got notifications. Now even if I have been quoted, messaged, or responded to, it says I have zero notifications by default.
