On 2011-03-27, 20:52:22 I received a comment to this answer on I got notified in my inbox, and it's still there in the inbox, but when I go to my "responses" tab on (I guess most users won't get to see my responses if they click the link), then the last comment there is from 2011-03-26, 14:40:09.

Ah, I just see, the old "responses" tag on my /recent page has quite a few comments of the past 2 days that are not in that other "responses" tab.

What's wrong with the new "responses" tab in my profile?

Since only moderators on the valid site can see your responses tab, would you care to share some of the example comments that were not shown on your profile version? I can't see anything suspicious about the particular one on the 27th, so I'm wondering if I can spot any form of trend based on multiple samples. – Grace Note Mar 28 '11 at 15:41
Oh, I think I've figured it out, based on my own profile. The "responses" tab in your profile seems to only track responses on posts that you own. If you get @pinged on someone else's posts (like for me, if you were to respond to me right here), they won't show up in your profile. I can post this as an answer, unless you're interested in converting this into a feature-request to revise this functionality. – Grace Note Mar 28 '11 at 15:43
@Grace: Thanks a lot for figuring this out. Yes, it would be great if you could post this as an answer; I think this could also be helpful to others. I can still make a separate feaure-request. – Hendrik Vogt Mar 28 '11 at 15:58
@Hendrik - No need for a feature-request, this is a bug - I'm fixing it now. – Nick Craver Mar 28 '11 at 15:59
I would translate my comment to an answer, but since @Nick is fixing this now, his answer's going to supercede mine and explain it, which leaves my answer to be terribly redundant. So I'll just happily wait for the status-completed ♪ – Grace Note Mar 28 '11 at 16:01
@Nick: Ah, thanks a lot, I was just about to remove the "bug" tag ... – Hendrik Vogt Mar 28 '11 at 16:01

So it turns out when I converted all of the responses code (comments, answers, revisions) I missed one case, which is the @reply style comments on posts you don't own (if you owned them, you'd see the comments anyway).

We just pushed out a change that rectifies this, you should now see all the @reply comments appearing in your responses tab, regardless of who owns the post.

Confirmed, thanks to comments on this very question. Nicely nicely. ♪ – Grace Note Mar 28 '11 at 16:42
Yep, all the comments are now in the new "responses" tab - thanks, that was quick! – Hendrik Vogt Mar 28 '11 at 16:47
