The total number of previous favorites is no longer displayed in the notifications

Only the favorites and comments that were added last are displayed.
Please set this feature correctly again as before
Or is this currently related to the stats problem

Yep, some changes in place that are not necessarily improvements.

- multiple faves or comments made by one visitor are now grouped together.

- total number of faves and comments on individual photos are now no longer displayed.

Instead ''X commented/faved photo Y (or alternatively: commented/faved Z number of photos).

Is there a point to this? I can't really see any benefit.

Cicay:

To attract staff attention I would make the header more concise and clearer:
e.g. Bell notification issues - Bug of New feature?

As an update:

Today's upload will show the number of faves and comments tallied up.
Older ones will not show all time totals anymore, but - in a similar vein - only the number of faves and comments that occurred today.

That sort of info is totally pointless I'd say.

IMHO this is a nasty BUG or undesired roll-out of a new lay-out.

I was so glad that finally a few months ago actual totals of faves and comments were now accurately shown under the bell icon, instead of max 9 (comments) or 49 (faves)

Another update - and still no one else seeing this?

My latest upload is now under the bell notifications showing up with
- Person X and 29 faved your image - yesterday (at 20h ago)
- Y +12 faves today (11h ago)
- Z + 3 faves (8h ago)
- one fave (by the WalrusTexas) 1 h ago.

Total 48, which is corresponding with the photo page.
But that number is never mentioned under the bell and tallies seem to be broken up at random moments.

They prefer to call it a feature, though, since people are assumed not to be interested in how many faves a photo has in total, but only in who has recently faved them, so they can rush over to fave back.

I agree with you that this is a wrong assumption — or maybe wishful thinking after it was accidentally dropped?
We're surfacing what has happened recently and seems most relevant.

O, I had missed the sticky thread.
Why not start a new one.
That one is months old and these are new (rubbish) features.

I'll comment there as well.

Stranger and stranger. After never being upgraded to the new bell icon, today, I have none at all!

The only useful—but really essential—feature of the bell was notification of posts in discussion threads. All the activity list is just a distraction, done much better in the Recent Activity menu item.

Thanks for the feedback!

In attempts to keep all feedback around the Notification Center in one centralized location as we roll out, we kindly ask conversations on the topic to be held in the existing thread:

[Updated August 19 with Archiving Old Content] Rollout of New Flickr Notifications Center and Settings

We'll continue to monitor feedback there & provide staff updates.
