    Default Quote Notifications... off....

    I have had a recent bout of complaints about the Quote Notifications. I have turned off the Notification, though you'll still be able to see the quotes in your UserCP.

    If you hate this, tell me here in this thread...
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    There are a few trolls whose only use of the forum us to harass everyone. You are right to turn off the quotes notification. These psychos won't give up.

    Sounds good
    If we have to have a choice between being dead and pitied, and being alive with a bad image, wed rather be alive and have the bad image.

    Once you put someone on ignore, there should be a way to prevent them from sending you notifications. They use that to harass you. Several days a week I get 10 notifications from people I have had on ignore for years.

    Why do ads pop up when you do normal clicking of navigation moves now?


    I’ll clink on a post link and instead an add comes up and I have to click out of the add and clink the post link yet again to get there


    How much money did you get to allow them to do that now?

    I don't like this idea.
    I count on Quote notifications to let me know when people who count want to discuss something. I am probably going to miss posts from my friends and peers without notifications. The trolls quoting me are annoying, but it doesn't outweigh the utility of quote notification

    I am all for stopping the childish back and forths that tend to blow up the threads, and turn them into- or hi-jack them into personal school yard sissy fights, by the drama queens and attention whores, that feel like they have to have the last word with every one of their political adversaries every comment.

    I have seen threads go to 100's of pages of just two attention whores basically having another sissy fight!

    Ain't got time for that!

    But, I am sure there will be a lot of the same old attention whores, cutting and pasting their adversaries quotes forward anyway.

    Some of the drama queens are relentless to get the last word in!

    SO GOOD LUCK!

    Make a habit of hitting the Settings area and view them. Same place, the same notifications, it just won't appear in your notifications list...

    Anyway, you can still see who quoted you and be able to tell if they are, according to your judgment, worthy of your attention.

    I didn't mind the notifications with the sole exceptions of showing a max of 10 AND in cases with certain posters is when they break up a long post in to 5 separate replies or do 5 replies to a single post.
    A sad commentary on we, as a people, and our viewpoint of our freedom can be summed up like this. We have liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, yet those very people look at Constitutionalists as radical and extreme.................so those liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans must believe that the constitution is radical and extreme.

    I hate it.

    There was a long while where they did not work on my mobile device and I hated that also... I try not to complain, because I appreciate you, but since you asked.

    You may have found the right solution. Thank you.

    Oh, so that's what happened. I thought it was something I messed up on my account.

    I liked the notifications. What was the purpose of turning them off? Anyway for members to make them optional?

    New system is working. I don't see notifications on my page. Just looked at "Settings" to see the same stalkers I've ignored/banned still there--where I can stop bothering to look at.
