< report >I've just pushed an update to the notifications feature. There's now a 🔔 icon on top of threads, reviews and database entries where you can (un)subscribe for various events. In particular, it's now possible to disable notifications for individual entries without changing your global notification settings.

As additional change, you will keep getting notifications for new posts even if you hadn't marked older notifications for the same thread as read (you wouldn't get new notifications in that case before) and your notifications are marked as read automatically when you open the respective page (this was already the case before with threads, but now it's consistent with other pages as well).

The number of events you can subscribe to is still somewhat limited:
- New posts in threads
- New comments on reviews
- New edits on DB entries
- New reviews on VNs
- Traits being (un)applied to characters

I can add more notification types on request.Last modified on 2020-10-14 at 08:34

< report >a tag and trait notification would be great, so we don't miss out when a proposed tag / trait is actually accepted or rejected.

< report >Now we only need an option to hide that bell symbol and space, as it sticks out like a sore thumb.

< report >@2: I'm afraid that'll have to wait until tags & traits have edit histories, as changes to them are not logged in any way at the moment.

@3: Ah yes, the usual complaints when a new link or button is added somewhere. :D
Have some CSS:
#subscribe { display: none }

EDIT: Sticks out like a sore thumb? What does it look like in your browser? It ought to look like a regular tab with the regular colors.Last modified on 2020-10-08 at 13:51

< report >Tab? It's a singular rectangle above everything on the website apart from the header basically. If you would put it right below the uppermost line, basically where the red X is, it wouldn't even be that bad.

< report >I rarely upload an image but if I do, it's been abload for a pretty long time already. There is just no bs involved which I like.

< report >Unbelievable some people always find a way to complain about something :D I think it's perfect as it is in its current place.

Thanks for the update, very satisfying to see how busy you're with the new upgrades :)Last modified on 2020-10-09 at 09:23

< report >Notifications for tags will be good. When there is a new tag added to VN, hidden under a spoiler (or vice versa) or downvoted (or vice versa). It's hard to follow every change in the db in this regard.
