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
