One of our staff members pointed out an issue with notifications and how following works along side the notification preferences and subscription management.
For instance if you follow a forum say 'General' but you only want to be notified of new topics not new comments, then you would have your preferences set to the below:
However if you then choose to follow a specific topic, you won't receive notifications for comments on the topic, which I think is important because when following specific topics you should be notified of everything to do with that topic including new comments or at least have options specific to that Topic, i.e. follow comments, status updates but for that topic only.
What do you think?
