Yeah. I don't want e-mail notifications. On your profile, you get 2 kinds of notifications. PM and regular. You have to click the notifications then it shows you the thread it's in...no preview, just the thread.
I would like the drop down to appear on the right hand side at all times, perhaps with the first two or three lines of the reply so I can see at a glance what the notification is without clearing them all. Like an inbox of sorts.
Not a major change, just a minor one.
Again, I'd pay for a "gold subscription" for this. $12 a year or something.
