It shouldn't have. I explained earlier that this is separate from phpBB's notification system. Sorry for the confusion.

The new news item is displayed on the front page. Although it's also on the member page one may have to scroll through a pending stars list to see it. You don't have to log in again. The front page doesn't give any indication you've logged in, but this is a separate issue that can be fixed later.

Thanks for the feedback so far, but I won't be able to add/fix things until next week.

It would be nice to be able to get a notification when certain creators release new AMVs.

Unless I misunderstand you, this is exactly what the alert system already does. Go to a creator's org profile and 'add them' to your alerts list.

What would be nice is if it alerted you via email like the forums. Now that would be cool. :wink:

quadir you are right. I came out an idiot but I'm happy to know they finally made the system which I felt was missing for a long time. Arigato gozaimashta.

I just noticed, if you get a PM from somebody, you can't click on their name like you can with everything else.

Something just occurred to me: non-donator's can't have as many alerts as donators, right? So what happens if someone who has max alerts for a donator misses a donation? He'd become a non-donator, but what about his alerts?

Truncation, probably.

godix wrote:Got a suggestion here, could you make the My Alerts page like the My Journal Buddies where recent stuff is highlighted in pink, slightly older stuff in green, and stuff more than a few days old in white.

Done, as wurpess mentioned.

godix wrote:If you have My Alerts turned on for new site news what it does is link you to the main page and ask you to log in again.

Front page now knows you're logged in.

godix wrote:However the shortened menu has Main Members Page, Search for AMVs, and Forums on it. I suggest replacing search for AMVs with My Alerts.

Added "My Alerts" and changed the layout a little.

Orwell wrote:On the other hand, would it stretch it out all that much to have the full bar on the side? It looks like there's a lot of left over white space, though that could just be my monitor.

I tried it that way first...

Orwell wrote:I just noticed, if you get a PM from somebody, you can't click on their name like you can with everything else.

You could click on "private message", but I changed it to their name.

That's right.

Anyway, I also wanted to say I think I fixed the problem where editing old videos would trigger an alert.
