I noticed some new activity on this question that I had been commenting on. I checked my notifications and saw that I hadn't been notified about the latest activity. I had only been notified about the user's previous comment.

Timestamps of comments

Then I noticed that the reason I wasn't notified about the most recent comment was because I wasn't tagged. My expectation was that I'd automatically be "following" so that I'd be notified about new comments even when I'm not tagged. Is there any way to achieve this functionality, either globally or on a question-by-question basis?

    I think you're not notified because there is one extra participant on that question. Had there only been you and the OP you would have been notified. If this gets implemented I rather have an opt-out as well. On some Meta posts (both here and on MSO) I don't want to get flooded for every new comment that is posted.

  • @rene - That's a good observation. I hadn't thought of that. – Kyle Delaney Jul 24 '19 at 23:46
