It would be nice if we could enable/disable them ourselves.

Yeah, I don't mind it either way, but I'd likely disable it on my end.
Sometimes we live no particular way but our own.

same here
 
I don't like the fact that I can be on the 'paug and randomly the notifications will show up for threads that have had no activity for awhile but I posted in months ago. (Usually the same notifications that pop up when I first come to the site and "x" them out at that time) Don't know if this can be fixed.
 
I did like the pop up during the LST yesterday to let you know someone had posted while you were still on the 'paug looking at other threads.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Doesn't bother me, but I also don't have to deal with threads from years ago popping up.

Don't ever go on a Paug hiatus. Notifications will own the right side of your screen.

I vote kill or manual disable.
Cause I got a degree

we don't have the ability to let you disable it on a per-user basis.  sorry, but we didn't write the plugin, and the features are what they are.

I still use the "New Replies To Your Posts" option, so that works fine for me. I'm pretty much indifferent, but I don't use it.

I've never donated to the server fund, so I don't feel as though my vote matters at all...but I did vote "doesn't matter to me".

Notifications = TTE
Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.
