It would make things a lot easier to navigate/keep track of if there was some sort of notification for when another user interacts with one of my notes/pictures, or otherwise interacts with something I have interacted with previously.

currently I do a lot of refreshing and scanning the "Meanwhile..." column and my activities.

@evanp

That's what the "notifications" button on the nav bar is for.

@jfrobbins

ok you're right, I didn't really catch that for some reason. In that case, right now it says

(user) posted (something) in note

It would be more useful I think if "note" were also linked to the parent (ie. #544 )

@jpope777

Maybe we need a title="Messages" & title="Notifications" added to those buttons.

@jfrobbins

that would help, but it is kind of easy to figure out by clicking on them.

I think the lack of context just had me mixed up--I was thinking it was a mirror of the sidebar w/o the OFG stuff for some reason.

@jfrobbins

Are the notifications supposed to be in sync? It looks like they are not updated as often as the meanwhile column.

@evanp

Yes, they're supposed to be in sync.

However, they only have stuff that's related to you. If someone you follow responds to someone else, that will show up in "Meanwhile" but not "Notifications".

@jfrobbins

I'll close this since that seems to do what the original issue was about
