I tried to follow a few people, like Alex and my friend TheFinnishYankee, and Linus. And I haven't received any notifications, even though I made sure that I set the format to send me notifications right here on the website. Am I doing something wrong?

Does it mean that I need to enable desktop notifs? I thought they would just pop up under the little bell in teh upper right.

No. Scroll down and check if you have " Someone I am following makes a post" and " Someone I follow posts a new status." enabled. If you still aren't getting anything, then its bug. Or the users you follow haven't posted anything since you started following them.

Here is a picture of what I see. I don't really see any options like the ones you mentioned. image.png.18aef3c4fe6717f1fd6c129b4677e160.png

If you have ticked it like I have, then you don't get notifications. If they are ticked correctly, then its bug.

I'm a dumbass. I just realized that you could scroll down. So I do have that ticked, but haven't received any notifs, even though when I check the profiles of the people I followed, they all had posted plenty since I followed them. I'm pretty sure it's a bug. I guess I'll just try unfollowing and refollowing and see if that fixes the issue.

You still don't have "Someone I'm following makes a post" enabled. It's the one highlighted in red/green (depending theme) on https://linustechtips.com/main/notifications/options/?type=follower_content

Slightly OT, but that link gives color issues on mobile night theme. Every setting name is grey text on white bg.
