PM notifications not working consistently



  • On my profile:

    But:

    The PM in question (now read):

    And my notifications:

    This was my last notification for a PM. I've had 5 since then, no notifications.



  • So I actually had one from a PM from 2 days ago. Except it's part of a chain and I don't have a notification for the OP of the PM thread or the first reply, just the third reply (the second being me so no notification there, natch).
    :wtf:

    It's not just you ;)



  • I wasn't sure, but I don't remember seeing posts with anyone else complaining about it.


  • :belt_onion:

    I got it once and I don't use PMs, like almost never.

    ... maybe that's why I have so many public posts on record ...

    Huh… I just got a notification for one of my Sekret PM club threads, but not for an auto-response when I flagged a post for whoosh.

    Maybe that's significant?



  • I thought it was just for flag responses, as I don't really have PMs other than those, but having checked a PM topic I do have from the other day, I was missing at least one notification from there too.

    No idea what the pattern is, if anything. That's why I haven't logged it, it's far too inconsistent.

    Possibly related:

    There is a bug @codinghorror hits fairly frequently that I got to get fixed.

    If you invite a user to an existing PM they have they have it set to regular instead of watching which can cause some real confusing states.

    So THAT'S how that happened! I assumed my husband clicked the button by mistake.



  • Repro (cheers @sam) & logged on meta.d.

    It also happens if your post gets moved to a new topic and it becomes the OP: the whole topic is set to "Regular".

    Which is inconsistent with opening a new topic which sets it to "Watching".

    Also, notifications get resent, but that's a separate issue.



  • This seems to be working now at least.
