    @little bear

    Did you just get one? Maybe you have it turned off in Preferences?

    I didn't change my alert preferences at all.

    I still get an alert when someone quotes my message, but when someone likes or agrees with message I get nothing.

    Weird.

    Same here. I noticed it a day or two ago, but wasn't sure as I don't post as much as some of the other guys.

    I posted reply #36 in this thread:
    Is Phil Emery the BEST GM we have had since Jim Finks?

    and got an agree, but I received no alert. I checked the alert list and it shows the last 3 times I was quoted, but no agrees or likes or anything other than quoted.

    Sorry I've been busy at work, and I haven't had time to look into this. I'm wondering if this is because of a piece of code I updated. It already conflicts with the Chat room.

    I'm starting to get them now. Maybe the setting just needed to be toggled?

    When I click "Alert" I can see the new messages. But then after I read and reply to one of these messages, I can't go back to the other until after I click on "Arcade" or something else on that menu strip.

    You can't hover over, or click on, the little white flag next to your "bearz buckz"?

    Yes, I can do it one time. But then, if, say, I read one of my alerted messages and reply to it, I can't immediately go back and click on the white flag. I must first go someplace like Arcade, Stock-Trader, etc. on the menu strip below it. Then, that somehow "activates" the white flag and I can click it and see the rest of the alerts. Weird.

    Very weird. I'm using FF at home, and IE at work and I don't have that issue. Any chance your using Chrome?

    Still not sure why that issue would exist anyway....
