Since yesterday, my superuser inbox is no longer receiving updates to questions where I contributed. That is, if I am to leave a comment and then another user were to leave a subsequent comment, I am not receiving an update in my inbox that another user has posted a comment or solution. It is only posting messages for questions I originate.

Is there a setting in superuser I might have inadvertently changed that affects my inbox behavior?

This is when you get notifications about comments:

  • when it's your own question/answer
  • if you're subscribed to question/answer. Subscribing to question also notifies you about edits, answers and when it's closed.
  • if someone pings you with @name
  • whenever you add a comment under a question/answer and noone else apart from the author does

The last case is kind of confusing and a reason why you may have thought it's always automatic. Not sure why they implemented it like that, but what's missing for me is some kind of autosubscription mechanism to all questions where you comment.

You must log in to answer this question.
