Alerts!

This question has been bothering me for a while, but now I am really considering it's possibility. When we receive alerts, whether because someone replied to our comments or corrected or translation, we can only see 5 at most.is it possible that we are missing replies and comments because of that? Thanks in advance!! :)

I am not sure about this either. But I have also noticed that you only receive alerts once you refresh your page. You do not get them while you are stationed on one page. In other words, to receive your alerts, you have to move onto another page or refresh your current one.

Thanks for your answer! However, read alerts remain in the alert box until new ones come in. I want to know if we are missing notifications when more than 5 alerts come in. Thanks! :)

Yes, only five show up at a time. If one more comes in, the oldest one in the bell drops off. This is why I use email notifications rather than the bell. Many people have asked for more alert space on the bell. I too think it would be helpful.
