Not getting notified when someone replies to posts on stream

This has been happening for some time now. The first time someone posts on my stream, I get the notification, then I reply, but then if that person replies back I get no notification, so I will never know that he/she has commented back unless I go to my stream. Can this be solved?

And going a little off topic, another problem I have is that my streak no. never appears on the screen. It just shows as '…' Only if I click on the fire, the no. shows.

That means that your screen is too small ;).

Ok, I use Duolingo on an iPad mini, so I guess that the screen must be too small. Anyway, doesn't matter. ;)

That's a glitch. There is no option to turn off notifications for getting posts on the stream. Report it via support tab.

I don't think this has ever not been the case for me. It's very irritating. Also, are we going to be able to initiate a conversation on our own streams again?

Can you make sure your settings are set up correctly. You should be getting an email notification. Just tested this :)

I just checked my mails now, and I'm getting notified there, but then one time I open my mail, I get some 100 mails at once, for all the commenting on followed discussions etc. so it's like searching for a needle in a haystack. I could rather just keep going to their stream and checking out if they've replied. I wanted to know if you get notified on the notification bell on the website itself.

I also wish to have the bell notification, because i also got the same problem, never know someone replied on my stream, & I normally do not have the habit to check email notification.

Mine are set for no email notifications. I get a notification on the site for posts initiating a conversation but not for replies.

That's the same with me.

Notifications are not the same as emails. The bell in the upper right is where you'll find notifications. You'll get them when community members follow you, you earn lingots, posts on your stream (not for replies), replies to a comment you've added. There are only notifications for the initial post on a stream, but there are emails for each reply.

Ok, thanks! It would be nice if we could have replies on our notification bell too (probably as an option) :)
