Have you updated your notification preferences?
Go to your profile, then "Modify Profile/Notifications".

https://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=notification

Set your notifications as you like.

Ok, I've updated mine to "daily".  I'll see when the notifications roll in.

You think i should select that for my profile & then observe what happens?
🤔

I set mine to daily notifications, just to see what would happen.  I had expected batches of notifications.  Instead,I get a single message called "Naked Science Forum - Daily Digest", with a summary of topic replies in topics I've participated in. 

The mention from @Zer0 did pop up separately.

Yup!

Whenever anyone(except me myself) places the @ sign before my nickname, even i do get those ' Notifications ' separately sayin..." Hello Zer0, your name was mentioned in so n so topic "
👍

& Even i do get notified of Only the
 ' First Response ' rest do not pop up unless n until I haven't viewed or checked the OP.
👍

Now here's what seems to be Obvious...

 [ Invalid Attachment ]

I've chosen the " Instantly - But Only for the First Unread Reply " option.
👍

I'm going to switch that now to
" Instantly " & then maybe i shall be notified of all replies in bulk.
👍

& Perhaps VHFPMR could opt for
" Weekly " notifications option...
That way, maybe rather than email pop ups coming in Instantly thru random postings...one could just have them delivered all on a single day all at once.
👍

P.S. - Going thru tips & tricks OPs to learn more bout how the system works, maybe I'd find a few goodies in there.
