The idea is that when someone likes one of your post, you get a.... notification. This would be a tiny popup-like thing at the bottom of the screen. At the same time, you would see a recent list of these events under a notification button.
You may have noticed that we have this new button at the top right corner, which kinda doesn't go away when you scroll.
This is where the notifications accumulate. When people like your post, you will see they build up under this button, and you will see them as unread notifications:
When you click this button, you can see a list of your posts people liked. Clicking this button also marks all notifications as 'read' and the button turns back black.
You will also see a tiny popup at the bottom of the screen as soon as someone likes your post. This is the most important part as it is known to give bursts of dopamine :)
If you click this popup, it will take you to that post.

Perhaps as a PIE feature?
I like that...choices are good.
Maybe this change had something to do with making us more mindful when we click on a 'thumb'?
Sometimes I give a 'thumbs up' just because no one else has or because no one has answered the post and I think it would be nice for them to know someone 'sees' them but I don't feel like answering myself.
Usually I give a thumbs up because I think it's a good post and sometimes in a healthy 'cider press' discussion I want to deliberately take sides but not otherwise participate. Sometimes I don't see why someone has a 'thumbs down' and want to balance that....and sometimes just to thank someone.
...all sorts of reasons, maybe not all 'good' ones and really no big deal
Now I'm wondering if a 'thumbs down' giver is ID'd also?

I had this same question over the past few days. Are settings for notifications available yet or I guess still on the wishlist/in the works?
Thanks for all your efforts Permies team.
If you go into your profile and select email preferences, there is a spot where you can select to be notified of topics you have responded to. Then you get alerts when something new is posted. If it is a topic you bookmarked without making any posts, go back and add one so you can get alerted of anything new.
Thanks Tina. That works for email alerts, but I was asking about having those options for the notifications bell icon in the top-right of the forum. So far the bell only tells me about posts being liked, but it'd be helpful if it told me about replies to posts I'm watching.
