Jeff, you've made my day! I did not know that was possible. Thank you :)

Edit, because I didn't see rdearman's tip before replying:
rdearman wrote:Just curious. Have you reviewed your settings? If you click on the "settings" link on the notifications it will take you to your profile and "board preferences". Or you can just go to "user control panel" and check notifications you want are ticked.

In addition, you should click on the "Edit postings" to make sure that you have ticked the "Notify me upon replies by default".
Yes, I did do that, and I've set it up to give me in-forum notifications for everything. (I saw your earlier post about email notifications not working – not sure if that's still the case, but either way, I don't need email notifications so that's not a problem.) But I'm still getting "patchy" notifications; e.g. if three people like a post of mine, I'll only get notified that one of them liked it. It's strange :/

But I didn't realize the tool tip revealed user names – this has pretty much solved the problem for me. Thanks, both!
