The big difference between watching and starring a project comes down to notifications. If you are watching a repository, you will receive notifications for all discussions — project issues, pull requests, comments on commits and any other comments. If you’re not watching a repo you’ll just receive notification for the discussions you participate in. On ...

You can disable the notifications on your phone (at least on Android) but you cannot on the website. I found this Google Group post where a Google Community Manager actually replied with: Hey Brian, I can understand where you're coming from and will pass the feature request along! I usually ignore the notifications and sometimes appreciate ...

Never mind, I finally found the setting. Press the Facebook logo to the Facebook Home page. On the left-hand side, under Lists, press Close Friends. You may need to press More first. In the top-right corner, press the Notifications button and select Off. So they hid the option in a place that usually never contains options. How ever so intuitive... ...

A couple of options: Follow the (private authenticated) RSS feed of your @replies/mentions: http://twitter.com/statuses/replies.rss - since its authenticated it will require you to sign in and won't work in Google Reader (unless you use Yahoo Pipes as an intermediary) Use a web-based service (such as http://pu.ly) to monitor your mentions and email you ...

Unfortunately, this is a little bit hidden in the current UI. Here's how you enable desktop notifications: Go to a board Scroll to the bottom of the "Activity" widget (lower right) Click "Allow Notifications" This setting is per-browser (so you'll need to re-enable it if you use a different computer), and only works in Chrome. If you don't see that ...

I got this notification in GMail, while on Google Plus I got a notification those contacts added me back. It is possibile that this is a new notification type previous versions of the notification counter didn't have support for, and thus "did something" is what they fall back onto.

If the website does provide an RSS feed skip step one and go directly to the second step. Look out for the icon on the website or your browser. Just click on it and use the URL you get at step two (Firefox shows the icon by default but not from version 4 on (you need to get it from the advanced menu), IE shows it from version 7 on (it has a star if the ...

This is a common misunderstanding of the way Trello notifications work, not a bug. We only notify you on stuff you don't see. So if you keep a browser window open with Trello on it, you won't get notifications (for now). Subscriptions to boards and cards, which is forthcoming, should address the need for email notification on new actions. For now, ...

You don't want to forget the fact that Google+ is still in the testing Phase with limited number of people. It is like beta testing page. I'd suggest using a different browser to try, like Chrome for example. Also I saw many people have added an extension to Google Chrome because maybe they are having the same issue. Also being a Google+ user , you can ...

I'm also a bit worried about this. I assume these notifications simply don't exist, because I can't find any proof it does. But it's not really nice to see this when you just downloaded someone else's photo to get a bit closer look at something in the background. If these notifications do happen, then someone is going to think I am a big creep. O man.

This thread on the Facebook forum has a couple of solutions suggested, this one seems to have the most love: Go to the top of your screen and click the little globe symobol where you can view your recent notifications. Hover over one of the them on the top left and ...

AFAIK there isn't a (native) solution to get notified when someone disconnects from you on LinkedIn. However, I would also think it's inappropriate. It's like saying: I no longer want to talk to you! Kthxbye! Furthermore, what use does it have, if that person actively decided no longer to be in touch with you, it's unlikely you can change his mind (or ...

From all I've heard & read, this isn't possible. The only way I've got around it is by copying these auto-generated events to another calendar and then adding a notification. One advantage of this is you choose which ones you get an alert for, but of course it's not ideal.

Then click on "Notifications" at the top and choose "Off". Of course you could also remove the person from ...

FileHippo.com will accomplish something similar that what you want to do (but it doesn't email you or anything). If you install the FileHippo.com Update Checker it will scan and notify you of updates (there is an option to be notified of beta updates as well).

You could create a second account just for the purpose of monitoring how your own account is perceived by other people. It's not the best method but it should give you the most accurate judgement.

George, you need to check if the publisher's feed is pushing its RSS feed with some push protocol; PubSubHubbub for example. PubSubHubbub is an open protocol for distributed Publish/subscribe communication on the internet. The protocol extends the Atom and RSS protocols for data feeds. The main purpose is to provide near-instant ...

Traffic.com offers e-mail and SMS alerts for any driving routes you register. As for Mass Transit, check with your local transit agency. A lot of them offer alerts.
