Really? Unfortunately, the notifications page has been broken and lacking for many years now, and it’s been pointed out time and again, but Patreon has yet to fix anything. Who cares, it’s just the
notifications page, right?
Some of the feedback they received over the past 3 years:
Now may not be the time for feedback on old features, but the new release got me poking around all over my account, so this came up. The order in which notifications appear is very strange. They’re not chronological (newest at the top) and that makes it very confusing. They seem to be arranged by kind but why? What is the rationale or usefulness of this?
