    Can I haz a little number to show the number of alerts on the WWP tab like hotmail has to tell you how many new messages you have got?

    I always see mine when I got to my shortcut for New Threads... don't you see yours? Or is it that you just can't wait that long?

    Hi OP,
    I hacked the WWP servers and installed your alert notification icon. It will show the number of new alerts as soon as you log in. As a bonus, it will even update in real time as you browse the site. Pretty cool ain't it? You don't have to thank me. It was nothing.

    It will look just like this:

    No, I want to see it in my tab while I am not looking at WWP. Like "Hotmail (1)" when I have an unread message waiting for me. I want to only click on the tab if there is something interesting going on.

    Beyond e-mail alerts, I don't know what could be set up for off-site notifications.

    off-site? a tab title that updates isn't off-site

    E-mail alerts seem to have problems again anyways

    Sometimes you just have to make do with what you have, son.

    Perhaps we could tell Mr. Hinkubah and Mr. Blue Note to like less stuff. Might take the pressure off to keep up with all those alerts.

    Alternately, make your posts less likeable.

    You've got any idea how annoying that is?
    The alert actually appears, but when checked = nothing.
    Very frustrating

    If the tab has made a connection to a different site, it's off-site as far as WWP goes.

    IMHO, we anons need to bring MUTHAFUCKA back into the mainstream. It makes me happy.
    Also, we need to have more fun fucking with the scilons.
    Carry on.

    Why can't I haz it? If I have hotmail open then in the tab it says "Hotmail - rolandberry@hot...". If I send a mail to myself then it changes to "Hotmail (1) - rolandberry@...".

    I likes it and I wants the WWP alert count in brackets like that. So at the moment I am seeing "An alert count like hotmail i.." and if I get 5 alerts coz my trolling worked then I want to see "(5) An alert count like hotmai...".

    how about like this:
    Where XF not only shows an alert badge within the browser window,
    but also updates the page title to show notifications in the browser's title bar or tab
    (like gmail/hotmail/etc does)

    Actually, you are correct.
    WWP already uses this plugin, only with the "browser tabs" part disabled. Sue's already poked at it some.

    I would find that feature (updating the page title) annoying. There could be other reasons as well. OP could petition "teh mangament" to turn that feature back on, I guess.
