Frustration with Chat

Other

Although I admit I cannot think of any solutions I am finding chat more and more frustrating.

Although notifications tell us if someone has replied to our comment or added to our topics it is still very hit and miss.

I often accidentally come across comments where I have been mentioned but not been notified because @ has not been prefixed to my username. How many of these have I missed?

I also find people often do not hit the reply button and therefore only the op gets a notification, not the person they are replying to.

I also miss a lot of comments by people who I enjoy following but can't tell if they have commented.

Today took the biscuit though. Someone copied and pasted a comment I made and posted it under their own username. I could not believe my eyes and only found it by chance. I am incensed and wonder if this person makes a habit of it, getting points for reposting other's comments!?

Lynibis Oooooo, that's not nice or right. I'd name and shame, as you say how many other times have they done it.

I can't be bothered reporting this but all should keep an eye out. During lockdown I have used chat a huge amount but from now on I am going to boycott those topics where the OP never answers anyone's comments. It isn't always possible to answer all the comments but one or two would be nice.

Lynibis I've been missing notifications for months now. I used the contact form but nothing was found. I have all of my settings correctly ticked but I miss many responses. I have missed responses where the member has prefixed with '@'. The plagiarism is a step too far!

Your problem is really a strange one angemski and I don't know what to say. You may check back to see if I have replied but let me know if this named reply works.

Lynibis I came back to check and you had tagged me and as I am reading I got the red notification come up - this was unusual. I am surprised David still bothers to talk to me ....😆 It's happening so often I've stepped back a bit.

Also frustrated that people keep starting topics they never return to! Don't they realise they can only do 2 topics per day (40 points) but can earn 100 more if they make 5 comments!

I have always found that odd. If they're doing it for points, why not reply to get more?

I have also found this happening a lot. I made a thread with several replies and had no notifications that anyone was adding to the topic at all!

You have misunderstood my comment but if you are not receiving notifications maybe send a contact us query. I was beginning to think you never returned to your topics until you answered my Bohemian Rhapsody lol.

Wow, and the one that really annoys me happens very often, like just now. Get a notification saying 'someone has liked your comment'' and when you click to remind yourself which one the whole blinking topic has gone with a message saying sorry the page can't be found and is never seen again so you have no idea what it was about or whose comment or topic was deleted....very frustrating.

Definitely agree with this - it's very frustrating. Would be better if the topic could just be hidden from people that hadn't previously commented.
