If notifications in the upper right corner say you've been quoted, or mentioned or whatnot, shouldn't they lead to somewhere you can view those quotes? They go to my user profile, but the only two links are my posts and threads I've started, not posts where I've been quoted. The notification links should go to user control panel not profile.

I am quoting your message above: this should give you the notification which, if clicked, should point right at the "Quotes" section in your profile. In there you should be able to click on the relevant message, which will take you straight where you were quoted.

Note, that section shows both other users quoting you and you quoting other users. In the screenshot I have highlighted in yellow other users quoting you. If you click on the post hyperlink it will take you there.

But that's YOUR account you're using to view my profile. When I click on notifications the only tab on my profile is statistics.

That's not the way it's supposed to work. I think there's something wrong with your profile settings.


@Big Mike check this out please?

I honestly cannot remember the specifics about this feature, it's been many years that no one has complained about anything.

I do believe it's something to do with Elite vs non-Elite. I am curious if any other Elite Members have a similar issue?

I think it's because the non-Elite Member has restricted profile settings, but I am not certain.

I think this is correct. I just checked my notifications, and the Post Quotes sent me to a list of post quotes, the New Mentions sent me to a list of mentions, as expected.

I believe that a change was made at some point regarding non-Elite members, and this was also affected. It has worked fine for me all along (I check mine daily.)

I don't recall now what the change was at the time (assuming I'm right about there being one), nor whether it makes sense for it to affect the notifications.
