Notification types


(Bot) #1

Sorry if this is the wrong category for this. I also tried to search for a similar topic, but I couldn’t find one.

Does anyone have a list of the notifications and their meaning?

You can generally tell from the glyph what the notification is from. Quote glyph, notification because someone quoted you, etc.

This is minor but the only one I don’t really see as self explanatory is when someone links to your post/topic. It uses an arrow pointing left. I wonder if using a linked chain would be clearer.

But I find that to be really nit picky so maybe it is fine as is.

Actually, the notification that got me wondering is the one where someone invites you to a thread. It has this pointing hand icon. It was on the Evolve forums and none of the Leaders and whatnot knew what it meant. The OP explained though, so it’s all cool. :smile:

True, that one is obscure. Doesn’t hovering your mouse over it show a tooltip though?

Oh, I guess it does. Never thought about doing that. :sweat:
