Hey, now that we're on this subject, I still experience that weird bug I mentioned a month or so ago.

http://socratic.org/questions/bug-report-notification-bell-keeps-showing-a-checked-notification-as-new

It stopper for while, but now I get it almost daily. I tried looking for patterns to see if I can figure out what could trigger it - if it begins after a post or an edit, if it happens exclusively during a certain time interval, if it gets triggered by likes or comments, not just by answers/edits, stuff like that - but couldn't find any.

Is anyone else experiencing this too?

Answer:

Some "Answers" simply use the answer space to restate the question.

Explanation:

I have notice several examples where the Answer space simply states:
"solve ..." and restates the question.

IMHO this is wasteful.

Perhaps some prior discussion or explicit guidelines for intended usage might be desirable.

Also earlier this week I received emails about things that had happened a week earlier. I don't think any of these appeared under my "bell" and certainly not as emails.

"Link Owl" bell notifications tend to mask anything I might really want to see.

Explanation:

If I get on an addict run, I can answer a dozen questions or more with "Link Owl" notifications on many of them.
