The more observant chrome, Firefox and safari users among you will have noticed the new prompt to enable notifications. This will give you all the notifications you normally receive (quotes, likes, private messages) in a convenient browser alert EVEN WHEN YOU'RE ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WEBSITE.

I know, right?

This has taken a stupid amount of time to get working properly (at least I think it is anyway) so please use it.

If you have already declined notifications and now realise this was a stupid mistake on your part then worry not - you can easily backtrack. In Chrome, click where it says "Secure" beside the address bar then change the permission for Notifications to "Always ask" and reload the page. In Firefox it's something similar but I can't remember right now. In safari who cares because who in their right mind uses that?

This is already in place for articles posted at https://thumped.com in a much more general way, but you have to allow forum notifications separately here because it's explicitly tied to your forum account and activity. Also, reasons.
