Poll: Do you prefer the notification system over the simple follow feed? (21 votes)

Yes. It's innovative and a different approach 14%
No. I'd rather have the follow feed 86%

Personally I say no. I'd rather just know who's online and get replies sent to my pm box as it was, simple but effective.

But I want to see if this is something CV members actually like as a majority, or if it's a good effort but in the wrong direction. I'm sure the staff probably does too.

Only way to do that is by showing a consensus. You don't have to state an opinion in detail of why but it would help. Thanks

I'd go with an option C, actually.

I'd like the follow feed back (and according to Rorie's post, they're working on something like it), but I'd like the notification system a whole lot more if it worked properly. I understand that things are new and there are bugs that need to be ironed out, it's still incredibly frustrating.

Personally I think it should've been the first approach. 'Don't fix whats not broken'

I like being told when users make blogs and reviews, but it's not really helpful with the insane lag it has right now.

They should bring back the previous follow system. The notification system is nice in theory, but I like all my notifications and PMs to be in one place; makes it especially easier on mobile.

The older one was much better, this new notification system is annoying and not as efficient.
