Whenever I post something on SO meta about a particular post or review, I ping the people involved with that post or review. It seems to be the equitable thing to do, allow people to speak up, if their actions are being discussed.
I'll start by pinging anyone relevant to the discussion within the comment thread under the post. If the user is a regular in a chat room, I'll ping them there. After that I'll go to the activity of each user concerned leave a comment, like this:
a heads up I posted a meta post about a post you reviewed Flagging an answer and editing the details of that answer into another answer
This always feels a little cumbersome, as it creates noise on the site.
Should we let people know that their actions are being discussed on a meta site?
If so what's the best way to communicate this to them?
