The answer for the question How do comment @replies work? states the following:

For questions: The moderator or gold badge holder who closed or reopened the question, provided they were the only one to do so. Users who have closed or reopened a question without a binding close vote (i.e. without a gold tag badge or a moderator vote), and those who bindingly voted, but other users were also involved (e.g. closed by User1, User2, and Moderator) cannot be notified.

It's not quite clear for me, does a gold tag badge holder get notified from a comment via @ if for instance they are second person who voted to close/reopen?

I just scienced it here, and I didn't get a ping from a comment posted by my sockpuppet.

  • I've asked because of my comment addressed to you :) – αλεχολυτ Mar 4 at 17:40
  • LOL! I reopened that because ColleenV seems to have found another solution. But perhaps it's better if she posts it under the duplicate question. – Glorfindel Mar 4 at 17:41
  • There was a bug report earlier that this type of comment did result in a notification when it wasn't supposed to. Might want to answer that saying that it's fixed. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Mar 4 at 18:06
  • @SonictheCuriouserHedgehog That bug appears to be specifically for moderators, not gold tag badge holders in general. And as far as I'm aware, that bug still exists. – cigien Mar 4 at 21:36
