FoolForMath Group Title

Bug Report: *The Notifier Dilemma* Hello, my current notification setting is “Notify me about mentions when: People I’ve fanned mentions me”. Just few minutes ago I received a notification “sammy90210 replied to Use a graphing utility to approximate (to two-decimal-place accuracy) any relative minimum or maximu…” Neither I had fanned that user nor I had commented in that thread, but still I was notified. This is thread url: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/4fbe914be4b0dd370c769351 **Please note: I ran some simulation using my sock puppet and noticed that this is not happening always but only in some cases. Thanks,

    That looks like a reply notification. You are notified about replies to questions you've participated in regardless. Only @-mentions are affected by that setting. Does that make sense?

    >>"That looks like a reply notification. You are notified about replies to questions you've participated in regardless." Yes in some cases when another user use @-mention (but not always). >>"Only @-mentions are affected by that setting." I don't understand.

    Yeah, I fixed a bug where people weren't getting notified often enough. My fix just worked a little, er, too well. :D

    Well, essentially the code I wrote will generate a reply notification if you were mentioned but your privacy settings would have otherwise blocked it. That's obviously an error. heh.

    Well, not entirely. Because if you participate in a thread, and someone mentions you we still want to generate a regular reply notification for that post.

    Yesterday, I was facing some lagging issues like questions were not loading properly, I fixed it by clicking the groups via the group selection bar. @Diyadiya faced this problem later.

    It's hard to define. No questions left or right is blue. Chats were loading fine.

    Yeah, we're going to drop some code on the server to figure out what's going on with that. Basically, next time it happens to my account after the deploy we're going to get all sorts of helpful information outputted to our log files.
