They don't pop up straight away but usually 15 minutes later. Can this be fixed or not? Mainly because i'd like to comment back on a discussion post straight away ^_^

Hi Swifty139! Although this may occasionally true, I think the alerts are quite efficient. When you are waiting for alerts, are you stuck on one page for a large amount of time? Alerts only appear when you refresh a page, just in case you didn't know. Hope this sort of answers your question? :)

Ah this would probably be the case, however yesterday I had to keep flicking back and forth from Immersion to Discussion to see if I had comments on an post, which I did but there were no alerts.

You didn't have alerts, but you did have replies? :]

April 23, 2014

Yes, someone had replied but no alert appeared

Hmm, well, sorry, I obviously can't fix that as a normal-non-DuoLingo-creator, but I think it's fine giving ten minute late replies, because after all, DuoLingo isn't the best place for conversations and such right? Sorry, I couldn't help you, but I hope your problem is solved soon! :)
