Bell Notification Limit
Does anyone else feel that notification bell should show more than 5 notifications? Currently it only shows the latest 5 notifications but when you click show more it just links you to your stream, which lets be honest is always a humongous mess and your bound to miss a message or two.
Maybe it can show more messages? Or at least link the notifications to a unique page that's not your stream. Thoughts?
Maybe even clump replies to the same discussion together?

I would love this. It probably seems like I am ignoring some people because I didn't see that they sent a message to me or replied to me, and I definitely don't like that.
I totally agree. On the new interface, the stream has been replaced with the "Activity" tab, which can be found in the top left of the screen (next to Home, Discussion, etc.). It is pretty much the same thing as the stream, but you can't get to it from your home page, and it's the only thing you see when you click on others' profiles (you can't see their tree). This still does not show notifications that you have missed, so unfortunately this still won't be fixed when the new interface is fully released. If you want to try it out, you can try creating a new profile. It worked for me, but I've heard that it didn't for others. Also, I believe all mods have the new interface already.
This is what I think the issue is with the bell notification see more
When I click on see more, all it does is bring up my stream.. ..which includes everything I have done, and everything the 78 people that I follow have done.
However if I click on ziggKogg's profile, and look at that stream, all I see is ziggKogg's activity.
It would be nice if the see more option, brought up our stream as seen by someone else instead of all the other activity which can be too much to look though if one is trying to find something in particular.
So glad you posted this. I like the idea of a fix too. I was a bit frustrated with it and ended up just created a folder in my gmail to collect all of the Duolingo notifications. I let them pile up forever without looking, until I looked. And now checking the folder is one of my favorite things to do xD But, yes, I still agree, it would be nice if the bell rolled out and had a scroll bar, at least to 15.
