Depending on the theme you are using you can change their locations in the template files. For example for lavender just move this between line 1 and 2. Would have to do it for the other pages as well like categories.tpl etc.
I solved my own problem... I setup a custom notification to fire on the action:post.save hook and I was using the same default standard format for the notifications nid value. Basically I was firing off a notification with the same nid as the notification that auto generates when you post a new topic.
