Topic Response Notification Bug

SemillonIvaNova 2 months ago 0

When one's friend creates a topic, the notification sits on your feed, alright, so far, that notification, is fine, and I really like that feature! But a problem with the response notification that appears in your notification dropdown, (or pop-up, on mobile) often only ever shows the wrong name of a user who responded. Here is a list of events, names edited, that represents a similar and accurate picture of what this looks like for us.

  1. User Feed Post) USER A has created a new topic "Dancing in the Reeds"
  2. USER B Responds to the starter of the topic
  3. USER A's Notif) USER B just replied to the topic "Dancing in the Reeds"
  4. USER C Responds to topic
  5. User Name's Notif) USER C just replied to the topic "Dancing in the Reeds"
  6. USER A's Notif) USER B just replied to the topic "Dancing in the Reeds"
  7. USER A responds to the topic
  8. USER C's Notif) USER A just replied to the . . .
  9. USER B's Notif) USER C just replied to the . . .

This is very confusing sometimes, especially when in a topic with more than 4 people, such as house topics, team topics, and especially with those who have student jobs who use the forum as a way of communicating officially with the rest of their site team. Please find a way to fix this bug for good, as it has been there as long as I can remember.

Thanks!
