I am very confused at how to work this website. I have used Reddit and The Student Room before and both have notifications and some form up upvotes. Why dont I get notifications when someone tags my username? And are there no upvotes here?

Why are you bumping after 5 minutes?

Lots of forums don't have upvotes.
You can search for site issues such as how to do notifications.

No "likes" or "upvotes" here <shudder>

You need to go into Customise and check the box for receiving notifications when you are tagged with @
It's not automatic as many people don't want notifications every other minute.

Right, you could go into mumsnet stuff and post your queries directly to them - might take a little while to get a response though

It's fairly quiet on here this time of night, you'll get more responses in the morning.

This website is much easier to navigate than Reddit, I can't make head nor tail of that.

There's no likes or upvotes on MN, thank God. It's a Chat site, we're supposed to use our words, you know, talk to each other.

I switched off notifications, I don't want them. They are easy enough to reactivate though, in Customise.
