Notification, when someone in your friend list writes a comment or creates a blog, is too annoying. Can someone make it opt-in?

Update 1: Apologies to 1595 people who got pinged due to this blog.
Update 2: I just realised codechef advertised their upcoming contest to 9298 people without spending a single penny. GG.

I completely agree, though, on the other hand, it is extremely amusing that tourist has the power to ping 33 thousand people the second he decides to write a comment. (Apologies to the 517 people I just pinged to make a silly joke — this is literally my dumb ping copypasta but expanded to a ridiculous scale.)

    Hey, I understand that you want to make a point, but don't you think pinging is unnecessary? I believe noone likes to be pinged just to read apologies for the ping.

So, that's why people write comments and blogs with alt accounts.

By the way, how does it work exactly? It seems like not every comment gives a ping. mango_lassi wrote 5 comments last night, yet I got 3 notifications.

I was thinking about it some days ago, about writing my own plugin. I think it's pretty cool. But making it optional is a very good idea.

Having a notification for a blog post written by your friend is okay but having a notification for every single comment your friend makes on codeforces is just annoying. Moreover, the person who is triggering the notification i.e someone like me making a comment on a particular blog might feel like he is getting watched for every single activity he does on codeforces. Though, I do feel that this will stop people from making meaningless comments on blog posts.

I think there should be an additional setting allowing people to watch you which will enable your friends for getting a notification for every single comment/activity you make on codeforces. And then you can have filters in your notification to find the relevant notifications you might be interested in.

But above all, I don't think there is a need to make these kind of changes on codeforces and a roll back to the previous notification implementation would be nice because having so many notifications kind of makes codeforces more like a social networking website which codeforces definitely isn't.

Sorry, actually it was opened by mistake. But I don't touch the system before the round ends. I'll fix it after it. Thanks for your feedback.

      I didn't get pinged by this. Looks like someone fixed it behind Mike's back :p

      Edit: I just got for someone else. Am I randomly getting only for only some friends or it doesnt work for replies?
