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

I would like to know, if it is possible to have an update in the Global Inbox (top left) for questions where I only placed a comment.

Sometimes, I ask a question in a comment to the questioning person. And I would obviously like to know if he commented back to me.

One workaround is putting it as a favourite, but is it also possible to have a notification in my inbox after placing a comment?

Thanks in advance, I hope I'm asking the right question on the right stackExchange =)

In theory, if the person is replying to your comment they'll use @Marnix in it, which will add the comment to your inbox. If they don't do that it's assumed the comment wasn't meant for you, and you don't get bothered about it (notifying everyone in a comment thread every time anyone posts a comment would probably get annoying)

Ah ok, so it depends on the user. I will do so in the future as well than. Thanks. – Marnix Jan 17 '11 at 11:33
