Deal alert popups (and all notifications) are currently offline for maintenance. We expect them to return over the weekend.

As a general rule, we always advise to use at least one other notification method (email or mobile push work really well) besides just popups.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Advise one other notification method...except mobile push isn't working now either, right? Not sure I understand that recommendation, at least not at this particular moment. Mobile push and my "notifications and activity" page are pretty well the only way I access sd nowadays, and both are kaput. Frown

I made some changes, and turned on notifications again.

I will keep an eye on it from the performance perspective, and will keep making improvements, but the first pass is promising.

Theyyyy'reee baacckk. Replying to this from a pop-up notification.

One thing you could add would be when clicking on a pop-up it should open automatically in a new tab, otherwise you lose the other pop-up notifications. I guess you can right click and do it manually.

We are in the process of reviewing functionality of the popups, and will add that to the list, good suggestion!

I am done with this round of performance changes. It should be in a pretty good shape for now and shouldn't require much more maintenance work.

Profile pages and notifications are restored and should behave much faster now.

There is a Best Buy blu-ray deal on the front page. I have blu-ray in my deal alerts. I just logged in and I have received no pop-up, none actually.

Hey All,
I don't know why, but I stopped getting my alerts, then I came back to the site and had to "resume" them. So I did and then I noticed I was not getting any alerts again, so again, I came to the site and had to "resume" the alerts one more time. I keep having to do this, anyone know why?
