    @EA_Mage The most recent example would be the thread titled “I know it’s just a game...” under General Discussion. I am unable to create a link to it because it has been closed for some reason without explanation. There were a few replies to my posts in this thread that I did not get notifications for.

    @ehaught58 Just to double check, did you have that thread bookmarked?

    For threads that you did not start you will only get notifications for posts where you were @ tagged or if you have the thread bookmarked.

    (Unless of course you have the "Notify me when people comment on discussions I've participated in." notification enabled. )

    I do not believe the @ was used, it was a reply to a post, like I am replying to your (this) post. I used to get notifications for replies to my posts. Did you get a notification for me replying to this post?

    @EA_Mage If someone uses “quote” and replies to my post, shouldn’t I get a notification?

    Can y’all fix it so when someone quotes us regardless of using an @ or not we get notifications?

    Hi @ehaught58 and @Chazzzy ,

    Just quoting someone does not trigger a notification for the person who is quoted, you are only notified when someone @tags you or you have the discussions bookmarked (or you have the participated discussions notification on). This is actually not something that is broken - it is working as designed.

    Thank you very much for the feedback on this!

    Why do we have to bookmark a whole discussion just to be notified someone quoted us? That seems counterintuitive.

    @EA_Mage, Quotes still do sometimes give a notification. I just got one today. During the first couple years in the game, I always got them. For the last (give or take) year, I only periodically get them. This may be why people keep asking about it. Just thought you might want to know.

    ETA: It could possibly be because the quote includes a tag.

    I'm getting notified sometimes when I'm tagged, but not always.

    I am not receiving notifications for anything except one bookmarked thread about Guru tweets. I have not visited my wall for about two weeks until today, and found several posts that I was not notified for. I also visited a couple of threads that I have recently posted in and saw some replies and tags to me that I was also not notified for. Seems like it is getting worse than better. @EA_Tom @EA_Lanna @EA_Cian

    Heyo,

    I'll check what's going on. Thank you for notifying me.

    @ehaught58 - could you let me know the link / timestamp of any content you were not notified for? I'll need that for us to investigate.

    I agree with this. I am missing out on a lot of replies because people respond with a quote and I never am notified about it. Maybe it should be optional... have an on/off toggle in settings.

    Well, you can use your reply to this thread as an example. I did not receive notification that you replied, and would not have known if I did not come back to check this thread. Also, any posts on my wall are examples, too. @EA_Tom

    We get notifications for our wall posts?

    @paradiseplanet, According to our "Preference" page, we do have a box to check off when others comment on our post on the wall but it doesn't work like it's suppose to.

    See the picture below where I have that box checked off where it says "Notify me when people reply to my wall comments". So I'm assuming that whenever we make posts on our wall and others comment on them, that we're suppose to get notified when they do but we don't.

    @lisasc360 Interesting, I honestly don't remember this setting; I've never had notifs for any wall posts since I joined this forum last year.

    This must be working now because @rosemow posted on my wall after I said I was going to miss the Twitch livestream because of a dental appointment (which I did miss the livestream). I got the notification she posted on my wall when I got home.

    Yeah it works when someone makes a post on our wall but when we make a post on our own wall and others comment to our post, it doesn't work. So say I post on my wall some pictures of my game and others go to comment on my original post, I don't receive any notification about anyone posting on my post even though I do have the "Notify me when people reply to my wall comments" box checked off. So from reading that, I'm under the assumption that we're suppose to get notify on Postings that we make on our own wall.

    The notifications work sometimes for our wall and sometimes they don't. Take for instance, I had someone posting on my this morning but I didn't receive any notification whatsoever about it. I only knew that I had someone posting over there as I had been viewing the "Activity Wall" and spotted it but didn't see any notification about it.

    Hello @klimna2
    I am sorry that you are not getting notifications of videos anymore. Perhaps if you post in the Video Haven section of the forums, YouTube simmers may be able to help you
