This is largely a shadow post of:
So head there and read it first
We (and by we I mean I) just deployed a new setting and new default for all users.
Instead of only being notified on the first like you get on a post, you get notified on first like and daily. So you get more . This means that some old posts that get likes and already got likes are going to start creeping in to your notifications.
Do you think the new default is too aggressive? Not aggressive enough?
Personally, I would like to change the default for Discourse to be “notify on every like” and then have power users or communities that hate pull back the default.
