Not that I need the validation, but the badge notifications and awards system appears to be dead.
Nothing wrong with enjoying the validation of badges, they’re there for a reason!
What do you mean by “died”, though? I received a “popular link” badge and notification only 15 hours ago - what specifically is missing?
Hmm, maybe it’s a me thing. Not getting notifications when passing certain “like” thresholds (for example.)
I was just noticing that I haven’t gotten a “nice reply” notification so far today as well. To echo OP, it’s not a huge deal, but just something I was noticing.
There are two system settings, one about collapsing like notifications when you get 3 or more at once, and one about treating any similar notification received within a two-hour period as one notification. I don’t know when these were added or if they are new, but perhaps that’s the behaviour you are seeing?
Maybe, though checking my “nice reply” badge doesn’t show recent awards, so I feel like a queue got stuck or a call failed.
Still not a big deal, but there’s a short somewhere in the system.
Ha! More that I care for various systems, and sometimes insignificant failures indicate larger issues lurking in the hedgerow.
Ah, that did it, whatever “that” was. The notifications are flowing again.
Speaking of broken bits, I can’t seem to take back a like after 24 hours. Was reading a post from yesterday where I liked one of the comments, and decided I wanted to retract the like… can’t do so, just get a circle with slash (no) icon instead of being able to click on it. Checked another post to test for repeatability and same scenario. Is this new?
Likes are permanent after a short time, like five minutes
COMING SOON: Being even more the most bestest!
It is important to have unachievable goals.
I have unachievable goals right now!
It’s all about the expectations.
For example, if I did that we could expect me never to be able to stand again!
I hope I’d at least get a participation badge.
Really? I guess I never noticed that. Wonder what the justification is?
Still seeing badge issues?
Not I, although I also haven’t made any badgeworthy comments lately. That’s on me, not Discourse.
