Why responses in notification reduce down in Mylot?

May 18, 2016 1:54am CST
On one day I open the site My lot and go to the notifications. I find around 620 notification. I look for the responses. Then I respond to the mentions of members of Mylot. I also search for interesting discussions and comment on them. Two days later I fine the in the notification the numbers have reduced down. Instead of 620 now it is 585. Why does this happen? Do the members who make comments or responses leave the Forum? Or they erase their comments?

Could it be that the system automatically erases the oldest responses or comments?

@sunrisefan Thanks for the reply. Otherwise why would one erase his or her own comments.

Notifications are automatically deleted when they are 7 days old.

Thanks Owlings. I came to understand now. It is because, if someone had already commented why on earth will he or she erase it?

I never noticed, i actually remove the notifications as i read them to know what i have or not seen yet. It is the best way to manage what is happening on the site.
