On most stacks that I am a member of, message and voting notifications arrive at my browser automatically (when I am logged in) so I can go and have look.

However I get no notifications from Travel Meta photography competitions such as June 2023 photo competition: Road and water crossing.

Why is that? Is there a setting I must make?

You do not get notifications for rep earned on a site meta, so it is right you got no message.

If things go as they should you will get a message for this answer.

  • Yes, I got a notification that there is an answer to my question, thank you. Commented Jul 6, 2023 at 16:55
  • But why don't we get notifications for voting? Commented Jul 6, 2023 at 17:28

    I think that is because voting on the site metas is to express agreement or disagreement with the post, completely different from voting on the main sites.

  • Interesting. I got a notification of that comment too. But does it mean I don't gain any rep from upvotes on the photo competitions? Commented Jul 6, 2023 at 18:42
