Today, I commented on one of the moderator nominations. Since then, I received a few inbox messages on that comment, stating 4 comments N mins ago H2CO3's Nomination. This probably means my comment got answers referencing me, but I cannot view them. When I click the link, I only get to the nomination itself - the comments do not yet have any permalinks. However, there is also no add / show N more comments button like on normal posts with many comments - I can only see the top-rated comments without a possibility to expand them.

I now noticed that I can view the comments on which the inbox notified me under the responses tab in my profile.

    @TimStone Now we're going to see a feature-request: close questions as dupes of chat messages. ;)

  • @Tim When is the next build? :) Commented Feb 11, 2014 at 13:10
  • @LightnessRacesinOrbit Ben said sometime this morning, but that if it seemed to be taking too long he'd kick one off manually himself. Looks like Meta's already had a build today, but not SO.

  • @LightnessRacesinOrbit This seems to have been deployed now.

1 Answer 1


Per Ben's chat message, a fix has been deployed that enables the "show more comments" link, so all of the previously hidden comments should now be accessible on the nomination post.

    Although maybe the number of automatically displayed comments should be reduced now, since some of those threads are fairly lengthy even before expanding...
