I use to get a number appear next to my notifications tab at the top of the page to tell me when I had new unread comments, new followers etc. Now a number only appears AFTER I have read and approved a comment, and it never tells me if I have a new follower. I only find these things out from my daily email, which is sometimes a little late, because I like to respond to people who have taken the trouble to leave a comment or follow my hubs as soon as possible.
Does anyone know why this is happening - is there some setting that I could change?
One thing you could do is set it so that you get instant email alerts with those actions, though we should definitely look into any potential issues with the manner in which the notifications pane works. Sorry for the trouble!
I agree that seeing a notification on the site when a comment is posted, but is not yet approved. I am going to send this to our engineering team.
Are there other notifications that the site displays after the fact?
The notification feature is useless in that it only notifies you of things after the fact. I'm really surprised it hasn't been dropped given how many other actually useful features have been over time.
