Notifications: Are you a neat freak?
September 11, 2015 5:35am CST
I guess it's just that the last thing on my mind in any situation is tidying up. So, it never occurred to me to clean up my notifications list. Then I noticed a few people here and there saying they deleted old notifications. Soon, even the new members were attending to the list. I started to feel like the lazy slob that I am. I worried about the lengths to which this notifications list might grow over the months. The list was already several hundred notifications long, so I decided to sample the joys of cleaning it up by deleting some. As I scrolled past Tuesdays and Fridays and weekend blitzes, I noticed that there were no notifications for August at all. Apparently, when a new month starts, so does a new notifications list. Heck, myLot deleted all of those old August notifications for me. So maybe it doesn't matter if all of my notifications for the month pile up on top of one another. What harm does it do? The newest ones are always at the top. I am afraid I am going to continue to be a lazy whatsit. I just don't see the point to frantically deleting the old notifications. Have you been keeping a tidy list? Or are you a slob like me?

I am quite pedantic about tidying the notifications and always delete them as soon as they have been dealt with. Even though they will be automatically removed as soon as the month changes, they can still be inconvenient and distractive. With a list of notifications displayed on the screen I find it too easy to keep checking ones that I have already responded to, especially if a member replies to my comment again soon after the first one.
