Lack of Interest [Suggestion] Merge Like and Quote?

    To minimise the amount of notifications received, why not merge the Like and Quote if they are related to the same Post ID?

    End result:
    {Name} liked and quoted your post in the thread {thread}.

    I'm not supporting this. I like the way its been implemented right now.

    I'm curious, for what reason? :)

    I like to keep track of each instance and when.... ;)

    Fair point :p I was just thinking to minimise notifications. If you're logging on to 60-70 notifications and only 30-35 of them are actually notifications you can reply to (quoted posts/replies to thread), it looks a lot and it isn't quite as much.

    I think it's a good idea in theory, but the fact is that I like seeing all the alerts. I'm just a Pavlov Alert Dog at this point.

    (Maybe I would feel differently about it if I were getting hundreds of alerts like you apparently are, Mr. Popularity.) :D

    Let me know when the alerts bore you and you start to Ctrl + F on your alerts list to find alerts that don't include Like ;)

    There's quite a few things you could do to minimise the alerts, such as merging alerts to do with the same posts (User X, User Y and User Z liked your post {post}). I'll have to create some modifications I expect :D

    Hey, I'm not the one with the "who liked me and what awards I got" siggy, I just like seeing the alerts. :) Also, I don't have them enabled for new posts or watched threads, so I don't get all that many.

    I have to fill my sig with something! To be completely honest I don't second-glance at it, but fair point ;)

    We need a "throw egg at" option on user profiles. Just so that we get an alert saying... "X threw an egg right in your face!"

    Hey, it's better than "please Like my post" or one of those. Heh.

    Yeah, I'm not talking about them boring me personally. I was just stating. I personally have no issue with regard to the current way it's done, I just feel alerts relating to a post should be grouped together for easier viewing - but that's just me!

    Alerts are generated as the action is taken so to merge a like and a quote, the code would have to revisit the alerts and merge any that fit the criteria.

    That would be a lot of overhead.
