I'm researching a notification proposition and would like to learn current notification rates for users to see exactly how much burden it is going to be.
But, I don't see anything like "Inbox" in the database schema.
If it's really not there (then recategorize this as feature-request):
Since almost all user's actions are public, and Inbox is but a reflection of them - shouldn't it be publicly accessible, too?
What I specifically need is: how many notifications, on average, a person of a certain tier is currently getting over a time period. (more specifically, it should be tied to their number of comments - but, for a rough estimation, we can assume that is proportional to reputation)
It would be best to get this for a few meaningful points:
- regular user (a few thousand rep)
- elite user (a few dozen thousand rep)
- top user (100+ thousand rep)
