    I get a notification alert on the forum site when I leave a "like" or quote a post.

    I like the notification feature, but my notifications button lights up red and shows notifications when I quote a post or leave a "like.' I already know that I've done this, so seeing the red notification alert and then finding that it's only telling me about something I did myself is a little excessive.

    I couldn't find a setting to change to stop this. It's no big deal if it's a bug; I can certainly live with it. But if I can turn it off I will.

    Thanks for the wonderful forum,
    Bob

    Is this an issue with your Z7 II? Hopefully someone will be along to help you out!

    No... it has been happening before I got my Z 7II. Maybe it was my D500 that started it? Darned DSLRs!

    Maybe clear your cookies and cache - but before trying that, be sure you have all your log in info for every website. I use Cookie AutoDelete as a browser add-on. That way I can isolate one website to clear cookies/cache instead of absolutely every website I go to. Just be sure to have your email and password info on hand to log back in.

    There is a delay for the quote feature - meaning if someone else quotes you, the red notification doesn't show up until later. So if you head over to notifications to check who quoted you, and if you already quoted someone else in the meantime, it will appear as though the notification was for your own quote. That's just a forum glitch and has been that way for a while.

    I'll try it.

    Here's an example from my notifications page after I clicked "Thanks/Like" on your post; the notification shows that I did it:

    It's no big deal. And, I guess it is correct in that it's notifying me of activity in a thread I'm subscribed to. I just thought it was curious that it notifies me of my own activity.

    This is working properly. It lists the activity that we do as well as what we receive. However, you shouldn't receive a red pop-up type of notification at the top of the page for your own activities. That's what I thought was happening.

    Cindy, I am fairly sure in the past I never used to receive a red notification for my own likes, but now I am getting some (not all) red pop-up notifications for posts that I like. It just means you log in thinking lots of people have liked your posts only to find out it's only a few and only to brought back down to Earth again

    The thing is I'm not experiencing it myself so it isn't a global issue for forum members - but I don't mean that in a non-nonchalant way. I just don't have any visual proof to send to jdeg. Can you screen shot your pop-up notifications BEFORE you open them and also screen shot the notifications themselves? I'm wondering if there is a delay making the notifications not display in real time?

    I see this. I will have cleared all the notifications then will get a new via the red notifications indicator if I check immediately there will be nothing new but after 5 minutes or so the new one will be there. I have tried refreshing the page but if done immediately it will not show wait a bit and it works as expected.
