And now I see that I’ve gotten email about some of your replies, but Gmail had stuffed them into my Promotions folder (that I don’t get notifications for). I can fix that.
I still didn’t get a notification on my phone from Chrome, but now I see had site notifications turned off for Chrome. I’ve fixed that, so it should do what I want now. And now that I’ve learned more about their trust levels, I’m liking this tool a little more. (Even if I do think they’re pretty strict on what you have to do to move up a level compared to lots of other discussion sites.)
Like any tool, it will take some tweaking, but so far so good.
