All nominated members were tagged at least 3 times in the thread, do you get notifications in the top corner next to your name when anyone tags you? If not this may be the reason why you didn’t know

I only use the forum. You don’t get tags.

Do you mean the app? Or website? The website definitely does alerts in the top right, caused by my username being tagged (@) or a thread I’m watching (automatically for any I’ve posted on in my case as that’s how I’ve set it up)

all of us are on the forum else we wouldn’t be reading and posting

Diet drinks - the artificial sweeteners taste vile.
Having to forswear foods I have loved all my life.
Trying to find low carb meals when eating out.

I always try to check the notifications.
I certainly didn't get 3!
I did see this notification. :)

Worth noting that I had no idea I had been nominated until I had a PM from the team.
Sometimes, if one gets multiple tags or quotes & pending on which browser, some can slip by… (I personally use 3 browsers optimised on Android, windows & IOS.)

It great to hear the Mod team are doing all they can to notify those who may have missed out on a nomination.
I wish the best of luck to those accepting to stand….

When @Rachox tagged me in upstream.

I only caught this on the bowser I was using at the time because I read my name in a post that pushed the topic up front.
Yet I can get notifications from new members reviving old & long forgotten old topics I once participated in…

Thank you @Jaylee, and others who have highlighted the problem of not receiving notifications when tagged. This has been referred to admin, as it is not something moderators were aware of, and is not something moderators can deal with. It is for the techies.

Likewise, further information regarding the process of voting for your moderator team will come from @Administrator. Moderators have to stand away from this part of the election process. :)

In the chat threads that I receive notifications. I don't actually get the number that I used to. The count is wrong.
I only get an initial notification, the first after my post in the thread.

Well, I just got a load of notifications about this thread. :)
I wonder if it was due to the number of references within a single post?
That is, too many references in one post breaks something?
All my references were (I think) part of a medium to long list.

It could actually be down to my movements on the forum? Being interested in certain topics & discarding others I once interacted with in my past duties as a mod. (Or either prior to becoming one…?)

A little like when I return to Amazon market place & they start promoting products I’ve looked at but decided not to buy? Some sort of “AI.” Acting on old “habits.” ;) Garnering a re-interest?
