Discourse Yearly Review Plugin
(AstonJ) #3

Ooo this is nice! :star_struck:

We have an annual update and I’d love to include this as part of it. Anyone know whether we can control where/how this is posted?

Well done everyone who has featured in the above, and thank you to everyone who has contributed to and worked on Discourse - making it the best forum platform out there!!! :ok_hand:t3:


(Patrick) #4

This is great :+1: Would like to see this on our forum also


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #5

See Discourse Yearly Review Plugin.


(AstonJ) #6

Oh wow just noticed I feature in it!!! (Had no idea I posted that many topics tho - is it a bug? Did I really post 44 topics last year?)

25

I think it would be nice to have a notification if a member features in this too :smiley:


(Régis Hanol) #7

Didn’t you get a notification from being mentioned?


#8

No notification for me, either.


(Simon Cossar) #9

Yes, I just double checked with a Data Explorer query to be sure.

You should have received a notification - I’m sure getting a lot of them in my dev environment. My guess is that the problem with notifications for this topic is that I initially published it to a private category as a shared draft. I recategorized it later to be public. I’ll take a look at that.


(AstonJ) #10

Thanks Simon, and just to confirm, I did not get a notification:

Thanks for checking.

I’m quite surprised actually! This place is so busy that I would have thought there were far more people posting a greater number of topics than me. I hope what I’ve posted has also been of use to others :relaxed:


(Mittineague) #11

IIRC, I received a mention notification from “system” prior to my visiting this topic. I Watch this category. For a while I had only a multiple replies notification for this topic. Now I have a single reply notification for this topic.
