When visiting a Stack Exchange site, I usually find myself distracted by an upvote on any of my questions or answers. In the past, it generated a red notification bubble in the top left of the page.
I have about 4,000-5,000 reputation points. Surely this feature must disturb people who have higher reputation more than it bothers me. No?
I deem another question to be very similar, Is there a way to unfollow notifications on a particular post. However (i) it didn't ask about upvotes specifically and (ii) it's four years old now.
