I would like to see who left a comment in my global inbox like this:

enter image description here

And also for answers:

(Except, of course, I would like the actual commentor's name, not "The Person Who Left The Comment".)

Could this be considered, or possibly even implemented?

    The picture of merged "2 comments" is not a good example, but for a single comment it would make sense.

  • This can be also applied to answers, if we're at it. Right now only chat messages notifications show who left the message. Jan 15, 2014 at 22:27
  • FWIW, this is one of the features in Stack Overflow Extras (SOX) :) (though having it implemented natively is always best!) Aug 26, 2022 at 20:49
