Dan has asked for me to make this thread , so he can request a change with the Developer

Now this is my BASIC idea but if you have ideas of your own , then please tell us  :)

 

{{THIS POST IS ABOUT THE NOTIFICATION FEATURE ONLY MY FRIENDS , I WILL MAKE A POST TO DISCUSS OTHER QUALMS VERY SOON}}

 

 IF A MEMBER HAS 50 NOTIFICATIONS 

1) MEMBER CLICKS ON THE SYMBOL OF THOSE NOTIFICATIONS , I THINK THIS SHOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE A BALL WITH A NUMBER ON.


2) NOTIFICATIONS UNREAD SHOULD BE HI LIGHTED WITH  CHOSEN COLOUR *WARNING PEOPLE HATE YELLOW* GOING BY FEEDBACK.  



3) MEMBER CLICKS ON ONE NOTIFICATION AND EITHER THAT NOTIFICATION HI LIGHT DISAPPEARS OR THE NOTIFICATION DISAPPEARS ALL TOGETHER

*it's less confusing when they disappear for members* as they do on AM and did on SH .


4) THEN MEMBER CLICKS ON NOTIFICATIONS AND SHOULD STILL HAVE 49 VISIBLY UNREAD NOTIFICATIONS TO GO THRU ONE AT A TIME.


I ALSO THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE PM'S AS A SEPARATE FEATURE  
A LITTLE ENVELOPE SYMBOL WITH A NUMBER COULD ALERT THE MEMBER THAT THEY HAVE PRIVATE MESSAGES  *some members hearts skip a beat when they see they have a PM from a Special someone*

Now you've seen my idea , tell me what you think  :)

I like your idea Ser :)

I like your idea Ser :)

I am having problems with entering a post.

The limit is 8000 letters or signs and my text had less than 3000. (I sent a question.)

So, I could only enter the imported picture found on-line. I am not an expert, so, every suggestion will be welcome! Thank you!

Dan Marianne Feb 11, 2016
Yeah, there is a limit of 8000 characters which is actually the source code of the text which you enter. You can view your source code by clicking the last icon on the answer box. The 8000 char limit will only exceed if there are so many 'styles' used in the text.

@ Dan
Actually, I copied and pasted my text from one of my word documents (letter type font "Arial" or "Times New Roman", size 10, letters/signs with spaces, etc. 2036).

I am somehow confused about the last icon in the answer box. I suppose that I'll have to open a new answer box first to check the bar at the top of the box.

O.K., I found "view source".


Note about the comment box:
There is no bar with options on top - after all, it is a comment, not an answer. There are the symbols for "comment", "new question", "hide", "edit" under the comment box.

Thank you, Dan.
Suyanto Tirta Marianne Feb 11, 2016
extra from me, should limit the duration of the video, gif, image, etc. should be more freely
Dan Marianne Feb 11, 2016
Suyanto Tirta, I can't understand it properly.
Suyanto Tirta Marianne Feb 11, 2016
Ok. The duration of posting is restricted also slowed as loading
_ Marianne Feb 11, 2016
Marianne if I make another post , can you ask this question on there please because this is primarily about getting the notifications feature we need :)
Marianne Marianne Feb 12, 2016
@ Ser - O.K., Serenity, can you give me the link to your new question? Then, if it works, I can paste my answer here (with the answers following mine), and also my call for help where you wish it. I will save the essential on a word document.
Suyanto Tirta Feb 11, 2016
I like your idea Ser :)

For your Idea Development I agree and nice, but the logo of the site less attractive, Also the walls of this site should be varied so interesting to see it. And may be a comfort for owners. Thanks

_ Suyanto Tirta Feb 11, 2016
@ Suyanto  I shall make another post and you can discuss that on there my friend :)

i think we should have a more of a streamline notifications centre instead of a little tab in the corner. but keep the notification warning at the top to let us know when we get them)

_ Skunky Stinkerson Feb 11, 2016
@ Skunky  I agree it is BEST when the Notification warning is at the TOP of our page :)

Don't like the way they disappear when you click on one...

I have an idea Ser :)

In the notifications I would like to see whom it was that upvoted or commented. As it is all I can see is that someone upvoted (or presumably downvoted too). I remember on Sodahead if you clicked on the thumbs up or thumbs down you could see who voted you up. It was a nice community building feature.
