Appearance

Notifications, scientifically known as Gelwazrubio Meneo, is part of the orange device family. Notifications aren’t very heavy, and take up only 15 memory. Despite making their presence known everywhere to almost everyone, Notifications are a part of a lucky few of the Devices that are thriving and have no identified population (that’s good). Like many devices on game start, they are invisible. However, they have a special characteristic that can show words in your view. They have a bell on their face to represent an alarm or a reminder.


What they Do

Notifications usually are reminders for gims for an event or something that just happened. They know everything that happens. They can even notify you of different types of events that will or have occurred. Since Notifications aren’t the most social Device known, they can only end a wire vine, not begin one.


Different breeds in the Wild

Notifications have a variety of breeds and personalities. They have five different breeds. They are varied in that some indicate an Error, a Warning, a Success, plain Information or just a note.

  • Name, like many other devices, they have names.
  • Some Notifications don’t like to be presented as long as others, so they can choose to have shorter or longer duration.
  • Some Notifications prefer to be in the right of your eye, when others prefer the left.
  • Some Notifications like to have more private audiences. Some like to be shown only to its summoner when others might be to be shown to everybody, the summoner’s team or the summoner’s team (Not including the summoner).
  • Well, just like they have names, they have different details. Some prefer to give different information than others, have different titles and content.

Interactions with other Devices

Notifications have few interactions with other devices. However, they do compete with the trigger in the niche of block coding. The notification presents a cheaper place to execute block code, but is often overlooked.

Like any device notifications work well with relays and triggers as there are no other natural ways to trigger a notification in game

For some reason notifications don’t get along with each other, every new one will overshadow the old one on your screen; who knows what happens to the old one…


For those who just skimmed through the study...

Bolded words are more important. They are good to read. Yes, instead of actually trying to read this relatively short guide and improve your vocabulary and reading level, just take the easy route (you might not have even read up 'til here…)

Can you set this topic to wiki so that others can edit it? I have ways to improve it, like removing the unrelated content from the topic, or simplifying the topic.

What’s the unrelated content?

the original was a wiki, and this one would benefit from it too

Ok, I’ll let you two edit it. @twofoursixeight first and @CassiusDoomlorde after him.
I’ll add credits to you guys and then undo wiki.

Note: These suggestions may not make it sound like an “On the nature of” series, but they will make the guide legible to read.

  • Notifications, scientifically known as Gelwazrubio Meneo is part of the orange device family.
    [ This sentence is not exaclty needed but I know you did this for fun.

  • There is a space between “see” and “like” that makes the guide harder to read.

We can rename the chapter to “Types of Notifications”, without this section needed to save room.

Rewrite this as in a professional tone

I don’t need to edit it.

[though I would revise the styling to be more like the original]

The fifth problem might be how the formatting is laid out, headers, etc, but I’ll deal with it in the edit.

I’m going to let @CassiusDoomlorde edit first.

Nice guide!

I have one more suggestion:

Removing the sign-out at the end

Yeah, probably shouldn’t reveal my name…
I’ll wait until you two finish.

No, not that. The sign-off may take up space in the guide.

That’s what I was talking about…

eh, it’s fine

ok I finished editing

Nice edits! Could you put back the different breeds in the wild?
Edit: Wait, did you?
