Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Whenever I see a new notification of some kind (e.g. 'no more than one @user can be notified'), there is a message of the notification and a close message.

Could we also have a link inside the 'dismiss' box to an explanation of what the notification is about; why there is such a policy? i.e. more info, as the 'dismiss' notification itself necessarily doesn't say much.

For instance, with the 'no more than one @user', the first time I saw that, it just irritated me and seems arbitrary and not very helpful (moreover, in my view an example of the various half-solutions to a SO-deisgn 'problem'.) If a link is provided I can go and read around it and understand what the policy is and why.

Otherwise I have to guess a question to ask on the relvant meta- site that may provide hints to the answer.

So you just want to insert a small link to information like this: How do comment @replies work?? – Bart Jun 13 '12 at 10:03
Yes, something exactly of that form, relevant to the particular notification. – nicodemus13 Jun 13 '12 at 10:19
