Seeing Notification Dates Vanish
January 23, 2017 5:15pm CST
There is something sad about ploughing through my Mylot notifications, namely seeing the date of postings vanish as I delete each notification I have read, and where possible replied to. When someone has liked, commented on and named me with a @ during a response I know all three notifications of that will lead to the same post so I purge two of them right away to trim down my notifications and then read them from the most recent to the last, so new comments tend to come first often as the commentators are most likely still online and likely to engage in a rolling live dialogue. What is sad is reaching the end of posts for specific dates. For example the oldest in need of my attention just now are three comments dating from the 18th January. They are my last tie to that date which will vanish never to return when the last of them is deleted. It feels like a bridge burning exercise though of course I can always visit the post itself to revisit them. Arthur Chappell

I'm surprised that you haven't disabled the 'likes'. They serve no purpose in my opinion. If someone's just liked, they don't need a response. I do keep the 'mentions' as we are sometimes mentioned in other people posts, but mostly they only apply to a response which we receive notification for anyway.
