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

Suggestion - notify user when their name is mentioned in comment

How do I track when people comment on an answer after me (it may be a reply to me)? Or when I comment the question asking for clarification, how do I see that they have updated?

This of course without having to visit all the places I have commented to see if there is a comment "answer".

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

For those coming later, as I did, and wondering how this can be seen: At the top left of every StackExchange site is a StackExchange button. If it has a red number beside it, there are notifications/messages waiting for you. Click on it. – gibberish Aug 1 '13 at 16:10

There isn't a good way currently, but there are feature requests and discussions about ways to improve the system, linked in the comments.
