It would be great if Mastodon notifications were more reliable. It almost always says there aren't any yet clicking on the tab will show a few from a day ago or earlier.
@chris I think this might merely be a problem with federation. Since replies are on other instances that are polled it takes a while for the feedback to appear.
@ericmann Oh, good point. Either way, it's more an annoyance than anything. I'll dig a bit deeper when I get a minute to see if there is anything I can do about it.
