What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When I get comments on other StackExchange sites, they don't come to my inbox. Why is this so?

So you did not get notification for this comment? – Shadow Wizard Jun 28 '12 at 9:54

This actually does happen for me:

inbox excerpt with SO and MSO comments

The icons are site icons and you can see I have both SO and MSO comments in my inbox. Your inbox is maintained across all SE sites; when I click the 'more inbox messages' link at the bottom you are taken to your full inbox on stackexchange.com; here is a shot of a few messages from different sites in mine:

SE inbox excerpt

All these messages have appeared in my inbox at the top of every SE site at the time.

I do apologize for the lack of hand-drawn circles on these screenshots though. I didn't see much point. :-)

You are getting them, I can see them! I call shenanigans!

Seriously though, they are there and I can see your inbox with many meta responses in it...tagging this as .

@MartijnPieters - added more fun! I'm up early to kick an out of control load balancer and feed a baby at the same time, I blame craziness on no-sleepy – Nick Craver Jun 28 '12 at 10:11
