Default Arcade Notifications

It has been requested (thanks tink!) That Notifications from the Arcade be sent when one of your scores gets beaten, so you know to go back to the game and try to get the score back.

I do have notifications turned on for the Tournaments, but I didn't have them turned on for individual scores on games because I was unsure if everyone who plays wanted to be inundated with PMs about their scores.

There are two ways I can go about this to help notify everyone of scores being taken.

The first one is turning on those notifications. If I do that, you will receive a PM that tells you your score has been beaten. If you don't want any PMs from the arcade, you can turn them off by going to the arcade, clicking on "Your Settings", go to notifications and click "no" you do not want notifications. (Mind you, that will also turn the tourney notifications off.)

The other way is I can have it make an auto post in here when a score is beaten. Not quite sure how that works, but it says it can make a post, so you can check in here to see which scores have been beaten and when.

That all said... I want feedback. Let me know which you like better and I will get it done

I kinda like that it would post in here... So we all can see lol...

But I'd honestly be good either way, I like the idea of knowing when my high score is beaten

If it's really necessary I'd prefer a post in here as opposed to PM's. I'd rather not turn off my notifications for tourneys because sometimes I forget. Whatever you decide is ok by me though. I know by how many high scores I have if something has been beaten and then I just scroll thru "your rankings" to see what I lost as a high score.

When will you have time to read all of your notifications, TK? I beat you every day in all the games. As long as you've got time to read all of them, I can spare a minute or two to check mine.

Actually, I'm with R-less. I know when you beat me without notification.

I have really only played a few games and just wondered ( to Tina) how you would know if a high score was taken.
I usually like the pms, and don't mind getting them in my(pm) mail...lol, sometimes, it's the only mail I get.
I guess if you play a lot, you are apt to get more pms from scores that are taken.
I have to get used to your arcade.
I was stupid to think that I had all these games lined up under my name that I knew I hadn't played...only to find out they are all the games on this site. Who knew. so dumb !
Now I am just waiting to find out about the tournament I signed up for. How do I know when it starts.
I keep checking because I thought you said I'd see "play" in the box.
I haven't seen this, so I guess it hasn't started.

You're not being dumb lol. it's hard to get used to a new arcade.
and No your tournament has not started yet. You will definitely get a PM with a link when it does. Speaking of which hey people!! There are about 10 tourneys that only need one more player!!!!!

Tourneys for SURE send a PM. Even I need the tourney to send a PM or I will forget. We make most of the tourneys smaller (like 4 players instead of 8) cause it's not easy to get people to sign up for them... so sometimes they sit there waiting for awhile to fill up. Then, when it does, it will send a PM. Otherwise those of us that signed up for them would never know it started. The tournament will also send you a reminder PM if you haven't played so you won't get disqualified. It will send another PM if you move forward in the tournament (beat your opponent.)

Some use the stats or rankings to see what games of theirs have been beaten. I use my "favorites" since I don't have that many games I play. You can also click on a persons name you see in the arcade and it will show you their rankings in all the games (if you wanted to straight challenge them in things.)

Will the notifications be for the monthly high scores or the high scores of all time (or both)?
