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

I know I can see all my comments via my profile --> Activity tab. But right now in order to see if someone added a comment (for example OP ask a question, I ask for clarification in comment and want to see if he answered) I have to go to each question separately and search for new comments made there.

My question is: do you have any faster way to see comments made on my comments, or added to questions I commented on?

Note, it's not relevant for answers, only when I added comment without full Answer.

There are two options:

If you want to track a question, just make it a favorite (click the star below the votes). You get notified if there is a change.

If you want to comment on a comment, use @username so the user gets notified.

Thanks, will try the Favorite way. :) – Shadow Wizard Oct 28 '10 at 11:33
But what if we don't want to favorite it because it's a new user question. Favoriting males it look like it's a good question. (Not implying all new userquestions are bad, but most are - even mine were) – Cole Johnson Jul 21 '13 at 7:38
@Cole "Favoriting males" - are you hinting something here? :-D – Shadow Wizard Dec 6 '13 at 0:15

If somebody is commenting on your question or answer, you'll be automatically notified. Same goes if somebody is answering to one of your comments and pings you @Shadow Wizard blablabla.

Newbies (myself included) are not aware of the @user thing so I can't really count on this.... found what I was looking for though: mark the question as favorite, then all comments will appear under "favorites" tab of "Recent Activity" page of my profile: stackoverflow.com/users/recent/… guess that's the best I can hope for.. thanks for the help! :-) – Shadow Wizard Oct 28 '10 at 12:19
@Shadow Wizard: In that case I'd suggest that you accept the answer from Gamecat. ;) – Time Traveling Bobby Oct 28 '10 at 12:27
