You may have noticed at the bottom of your screen that you have the option to turn push notifications on.

For those that don't know what they are, they're just notices about when someone's quoted/liked etc. your post. Sort of like the current alert system available now, except you'll receive the notifications even if you're not on CHB. For example:

4351

And if you have selected to enable push notifications, but you want to turn them off, well that's easy to do. Just click on the 'View site information' button beside the URL, go to notifications, and click 'Block'.

4352

This is the same on mobile devices :good

So a bit more info - unfortunately due to Apple using a different standard than everyone else in the world, we can't support apple devices yet. At least not IOS devices, I think Chrome on OSX may work. Maybe. Point is Apple suck and are a pain in the arse.

So for the rest of us, we can have push notifications, which mean that you can respond to anyone who sends you an alert - PM, quote, mention, like, posting in a thread/forum you're 'watching'/subscribed to etc. It's awesome stuff.

The better news is that it's device specific - so you can choose to have it on several devices, and turned off on others - so if you don't want it on your works computer but on your phone, just only enable it on your phone, don't do it on the computer. Or vice versa - the choice is completely up to you.

Why aren't you up to 2,000,000 likes yet? (And how did I ever get any? Also, when are you going to publish your cookbook dedicated to @Gumby?...)

No, no, no, not big floppy titty Duo. :nono Duo push.
We don't get a lot of choice tbh, maybe if I do a 3rd party integration but those solutions cost money. I imagine there will be upgrades and improvements to the current system as time goes on.

I kind of like it to be a surprise when I log on and see whether or not I have a notification or two.

:hat
