On some posts I can't see who liked my post any longer

    Is this a known issue?

    For example, got a notification that somebody liked this post:

    But the likes no longer show up:

    • 5 replies
    1. That could happen if someone clicks Like, then a notification about that gets sent, and the person toggles the Like vote off.

      Otherwise, if there's a bug related to this, it's not a known issue. — I can have a look in the database and see if there is (was) a like vote or not.

      B.t.w. now your Original Post should have a Like vote

              @KajMagnus would it make sense to maybe delay the notifications for a time between 5-15 minutes? That way, if someone clicks the like "by accident" or likes a post by just reading the title and changes their mind later, the notifications would not be sent out prematurely and end up making the platform feel "buggy".

              Does this also make sense to other users? @chrscheuer ?

                  We use the forum in real-time being online while interacting with users, so not receiving instant notifications would be a significant degradation of the experience, IMO.

                      A better solution would be to remove the notification if the corresponding event/item/content had since been deleted. This also goes for cases of a new page being opened that since has been deleted.
                      This is a very small issue though, IMO - I wouldn't give much priority to this.

                      For notifications, the one improvement I would like to see much higher prioritized would be to make sure that when a notification has been read (the page/post watched) that this updates in real time on all open browser tabs. Today, I constantly have to refresh pages/tabs because I know I read a notification in one tab, but since I had another tab open, that tab will not have updated which notifications have been viewed, so it'll show an incorrect number and make it harder to get through all notifications quickly.
