Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Recently, I've started seeing notifications of changes to favorites in my recent activity page, even though I've checked the "I don't want notifications of activity on questions I've favorited" option.

Has something changed or is this no longer working? I've seen this happening on Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow and Super User.

What do you mean by "notifications" specifically? The "New Replies" envelop is lighting up? A banner message appears? – Jarrod Dixon Nov 2 '10 at 8:57
@Jarrod I see the "New replies" envelope, yes. Right now, I also got a banner message saying: "You have 1 new comment; 1 favorite change". This seems to be happening on all the sites I'm active. – alex Nov 2 '10 at 20:17

There were some differences between the queries that lit the envelope and those that returned data on the /users/recent page - these have been refactored to use the same code.

And it will respect your favorite preference!
