Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Forgive me that I'm almost certainly producing a duplicate with this, but I'm confused.

In this question, the OP makes a feature request for "Facebook style" comment notification - i.e. when you make a comment somewhere, you get notified of all subsequent comments, no matter whether you are personally targeted using @username or not. The question is marked status-completed as of January 16 this year.

However, the notification system as it works right now, does not notify you of subsequent comments, which is kind of annoying because in the normal flow of the conversation, you tend to forget to address the user.

Has this changed since that question was tagged status-completed?

You have to remember the @ every time. But, jeff considers this complete. – jjnguy Feb 16 '10 at 19:21
I think it'd also be handy for a list of "relevant" usernames to popup when you start typing @ like facebook does, but that's just me. – Earlz Feb 16 '10 at 19:26

The question you reference asks for all your comments to be on your activity page, and, indeed, they are.

It also asks for all comments on questions you've commented on to be on your responses page, and they are not.

Per Jeff's answer on that question, they didn't implement exactly what Kip asked for. The question didn't mention "@" notification at all, but that's what they did.
