What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

While I love the Stack Exchange network and Stack Overflow especially, I started to be really annoyed about having too many badge notifications, especially from the new sites where I go only occasionally.

I think that this amount of gamification is too much for me to handle, and I want to be able to opt-out from using it but still be able to use the site.

There isn't a way, unfortunately. If you decide to make this a feature-request I'd support it. In fact I'd support anything that has "disable" & "notifications" in it. – Yannis May 3 '12 at 12:54
Now is a feature request! BTW, I am so disperate, that I would gladly accept a grease-monkey solution, too. – sorin May 3 '12 at 12:57

@ShaDowWizArd Not duplicate, I want other notifications but not the gamification ones. I don't need a carrot do activate on these sites, I just do it because it helps me (including helping others). – sorin May 3 '12 at 13:10
@Sorin it says allow people to select for which events they want a notification in the notification bar :) – Shadow Wizard May 3 '12 at 13:12
