View Full Version : [SITE] I get notifications for people I neither follow nor friend?

So as I logged in a few minutes ago, I noticed the site was up (yay) and that I had a couple new notifications, so I went to check 'em. The pictures were about Demu but when I clicked 'em, it was actually his girlfriend, Trickitt, who made the pictures. I got notifications for these even though I neither follow her nor am her friend.

Could it be that when someone you follow has his name in someone else's tags, it gives you a notification?

PS: I now follow her, because I did like the pics x3

Would it happen to be the pics listed here? :P

By default, follow settings include notifications on art that the user collects, so this may be why you're seeing them.

I got the same thing—clicked on a picture listed under Prawst, and was directed to a submission by Hoot. It's because it was a collection/collaboration where Prawst was credited. So yeah, it's not a bug.

These are the ones! Wow, this collection thing is neat!

Collection notifications modified to say collected by JayRandom rather than simply by JayRandom for clarity. Thanks for reporting!

(If you prefer, you can choose not to receive collection notifications from individual users you are following, or not to receive collection notifications by default when you create a new follow relationship).
