Comcast H. & S. Forums (missing Bell with # of recent replies to posts)

I notice the Forum was worked on today with new categories, etc.

 

The bell with red number of recent replies, and notes, is missing on the bar next to our Avatar.

I just noticed the notification bell showing recent replies to posts is back on 8/30/16.

 

Thank you to the member of Forums update crew who fixed the problem.

I read that post.

 

I think the timing of redoing forum setup was just a smoke-screen for all broken promises on watching Rio Olympics. Now most people with valid complaints can't even find their original post after they got mixed in the blender and splattered under different categories that don't make much sense.

 

Without the good old Notification it's hard to know when someone replies. Especially after many posts were merged with others. MY SUBSCRIPTIONS can help locate posts but how many new members know how to use it. Smiley Sad

 

I got one e-mail from a member who was relatively new thinking they had censored and removed a post he replied too. I found the post was moved but still existed.

The bell was never broken, just removed temporarily while the forums were being updated.  This thread doesn't even belong in this group since it has nothing to do with the "Xfinity TV Website".

What your saying is true about the missing bell. However; there was no site mentioned for forum problems.

It may be back, and possibly posted in the wrong area, but since its return, the notifications listing is all messed up.  I'm showing 2 notifications from Aug. 26 & 27, 2016.   All the rest are from 2011, 2012 & 2013...

 

Any clues?  

 

ciao, bj

I believe that was part of the problem they found after trying to change and update the forum. I guess the reason the notification was removed for a while.

 

Their try at shifting posts to new categories, and merging of similar posts also caused problems with the data base. Many replies are missing on merged posts.
