The problem is, when you view an alert in alert overview (on top right on navigation bar, the mouseover effect) BUT you don't visit the thread (not clicking on the alert), you will not get new alerts for that watched thread.
Most of the time, when there are new alerts, I just go on top right and look what kind of alerts I got in the overview. And often I don't visit the threads I watched. But this is fatal. Because now I will never get an alert again for those watched threads. I MUST visit the thread before I get again new alerts.
What I want is: I want to get alerts for unread watched threads (like Xenforo default). But the trigger for the next alert shouldn't be that I have to read the thread to get a new alert. I want that the trigger is the "viewed alert" part, not the "viewed thread" part.
I want to change the Xenforo core to have this effect. Can you help me?
