notifications

The terms pop-up notification, toast, passive pop-up, snackbar, desktop notification, notification bubble, or simply notification all refer to a graphical control element that communicates certain events to the user without forcing them to react to this notification immediately, unlike conventional pop-up windows. Desktop notifications usually disappear automatically after a short amount of time. Often their content is then stored in some widget that allows the users to access past notifications at a more convenient time.
On mobile devices, a push notification system is typically used.

    Fixed  Suggestion: Provide notifications for threads you started.

    I get notifications (under the bell shaped icon) when someone likes or quotes a post I made. I would like to get the same kind of notifications when someone posts to a thread I started. I don't want email notifications - I want to see it as a visible notification on the site. Thanks
