Apparently in the process of the many improvements that have been made on DC, some things got messed up inadvertantly. I was not getting any notifications. When I went to my privacy settings I found that somehow they had been changed. So, if you have not been getting notifications go to privacy settings and check the appropriate boxes and leave the bottom one unchecked. Oh, since this is suppose to be in the form of a question. Has this happened to you? :)

They are working quite well again. I hope you guys are getting them.

You do realize this was from 2 years ago! Always nice to see stuff recycled! It is working much better. Folks need to know that if you are having any issues, first, check your profile settings. Sometimes thes get messed up and you need to reset them. Next, contact someone a DC. I have had good responses from John C. (rats, can't remember how to spll his last name). I use to tell Gabby, but realize she was just a middle woman! She always delivered.

It was, but it was also a recurring problem. So I thought I would update in case some new folks popped in. I hate loose ends. LOL And yes, Rachel is the best person to go to first, then me if you can't get a hold of John. He's usually very busy.

Yes, Jim it has happened to me too, but since I usually have been on most every day (except this past Fri.) it came to my awareness nearly the same day it happened. We missed you Jim!

I have let the team know about this as well. I am so sorry for the inconvenience of it all. Please be patient as we work out the bugs.

i believe in providing info more than complaining, so this is info. it seems as if i am getting 2 notifications per an inbox note.

Tell everyone what…if I get a notification, it's probably for you and I will let you know!! For every one email that my inbox gets, I get anywhere from 3 to 6 notifications! So apparently I am getting everyone's notifications as well as my own. An interesting reverse problem! And how the heck do I stop THIS one?? My home email inbox is loaded with nothing but email notifications LOL :-P

Maybe they know your mind is slipping and they don't want you to forget.
This AM I had the same issue. I had 8 notifications and only 2 inbox items.

Mine didn't change, but I realized I needed to change mine so that I would receive an email confirming I had someone who was following. Having a name from the email makes it much easier to find the person and follow back.

Yes Jim, it happened to me, that is why I posted this.

Well that explains why the two of you have been so quiet lately. ;)

Yes, I have not heard from you in awhile. I do not get on as often, so not getting notifications didn't help. Good thing is I have a lot of 2 cent pieces saved up!

you can always private message me. December until yesterday were very tough at times due to the divorce stuff. It is over, for the most part. Still have the realestate to sell. Have had some tough depression dyas, the longest being about 2 weeks. Not bad considering once Amy left I cut my medication in half!

Sorry its been tough. Sounds like some of the stress went out the door with her though. Is the new stress easier to handle?
