    I have impression that this setting in Alert Preferences doesn't work. At least for me...
    I have not received mention alerts for a week or two. Have you?

    Sorry, I copied the wrong setting name. Title is fixed.

    Alerts on quotes do work, but alerts on mentioning (user name prefixed with the @) may be do not work.

    @mbk1969

    @mbk1969

    @mbk1969

    Did you receive any of them?

    I know on another forum I visit, Firefox had disabled notification access or something for that site, I had to make an exception in the privacy settings

    EDIT - No way to add a specific site to that exceptions list, but if you enable the allow notifications check box, G3D may prompt you at some point then it should be added to the list

    Yes, I did (one alert). Thank you.
    I was asking because recently I saw two gurus mentioning me like that but there were no alerts.
    Mysterious life of the forum.

    As for access to notifications I did not mean them, I meant only guru3d own alerts in the upper right corner.

    Yea it was the same on the other forum I mentioned, stopped getting those same alerts until I allowed it from notifications too

    Maybe people are not using the @ thing properly, you need to click the persons username once it appears as shown here to ensure it gets posted as a link

    I only got one alert - for spajdrik`s mention
    [​IMG]

    PS My share of experiments:
    Trying to mention @Extraordinary without the mouse - just by typing...

    PPS Just a thought: probably the effect of copy-n-pasting the name of the user and of using @ prefix is the same - insertion of the link to user`s profile which interpreted by the forum engine as a mentioning.

    I got a notification for you quoting my post in that post, but not from my name being tagged, so you must only get one notification per post even if multiple methods are used
