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

When someone comments on my self-nomination for moderator, I get a notification, but when I click on it, I don't get to it. I wind up somewhere else.

And comment notifications sometimes don't turn up at all despite @username. (Although that's a different issue) – Pëkka Jan 19 '11 at 16:17
    
@Pekka Edits to comments don't trigger the global inbox to change. Chances are, you didn't receive the notification because it was edited in at a later point. See my answer to an older question of yours. – Grace Note Jan 19 '11 at 16:22
    
@Grace ah, fair enough! It could have been that. – Pëkka Jan 19 '11 at 16:23
    
@Pekka As a handy tip, your envelope report will still have the comment replies (as noted in said answer). So you can mostly confirm this by cross-referencing it with your global inbox and noting how anything absent from the inbox probably has a pencil next to it. – Grace Note Jan 19 '11 at 16:26
    
@Grace ah, thanks! Makes sense. – Pëkka Jan 19 '11 at 16:29
    
Comment notifications are still broken... comments on my nomination are showing up in my inbox, but the title says User commented on and then ends - there is no link for what they commented on. – nhinkle Jan 20 '11 at 22:09
    
@nhinkle There is, but the link has no text. – badp Feb 19 '11 at 19:31
    
    
77518 is a dupe of this question... the screenshot is nice, though. – Jon Seigel Feb 22 '11 at 0:00

You should get properly notified of comments on election nominations now. Apologies for the delay.

no problem. I got a lot of rep from meta readers voting this up over the months. – Rosinante Apr 21 '11 at 12:31
