How excited do you become when you see "_Alerts for You!"?

Asked by eambos (8899points) April 21st, 2008 from iPhone

When there’s a slow day and not many questions are asked I am always on the edge of my seat refreshing the browser constantly in hopes of an alert.

This raises the question of, when will there be a nice Dashboard widget for Fluther updates and quick questions/answers?

Sweet! I got an alert for “3 blind mice”! Way to go, eambos! (jk, actually, that is not one of my “fields of expertise” but I love your “topics” list.)

I love digging into a new question. I wonder what most people do when they first log on. I catch up with private comments, then the activity I’ve been following , then go to questions for me. What does everyone else do?

Babo's avatar

My question, which do you look at first, new activity or questions, got deleted but this one didn’t! Babo mad!!!

Usually, when I get an alert or two, I scream for joy, run around the house a little, Find the nearest rocket and just before it reaches space, I jump off and take out my parachute and fireworks, While I’m floating down I launch the fireworks. :-D

@theotherkid….so I assume you’re on an iPhone?

yup. :-)

thought so…...otherwise it would take you forever to get back and actually read them – although… did take you a while to answer this….

It was the Fluther Questions Widget. Problem is it doesn’t show activity..

Does the “alert” go by some other name? I don’t see any on my account.

I get so excited I jump out of my virtual skin. But I get excited when the mailman delivers our mail too so I’m easily entertained.
