When you respond to one of your own questions?

I was just woundering, when i ask a question and answer to someone elses response do they get a notification about the response that i wrote... Kinda confusing sorry didn't know how else to word it, hopefully someone understands what i'm talking about.

  • Nope...I just go back and look at what other people say and then I notice that the OP said something to me personally...it would be nice though if we got some kind of notification, thats good idea

  • No, you only get notified if it is your post and someone else comments.

  • I wish you did get a notification when someone does respond to you directly.... there should also be a way that from the thread you can comment directly to that post. Cause til you respond there may be several other posts in between.

    I also wish that as questions get answered they move to the top of the page. That way you see ones that have the most activity.... sometimes these are good/valuable posts/questions.

  • No. Cafemom should have it set up like that though. I don't go back on most questions so I usually never know if someone said something about what I said. There should be a little "reply" button to where it states somewhere in your post that you are replying to a certain person and that certain person gets notification of it.

  • Two features they need to add - an indicator on questions to tell you when there are new replies since it was last read, and a line of code that can be taken from any message board software out there that lets you go to the first new reply automatically when you open the question. I don't need to be notified any time an OP replies to something, but I would like to know when there are new answers without having to memorize how many replies every question has.

  • I'm so glade that i'm not the only one that's doesn't like the way the question thing is set up, I really hope they figure out a better soultion. See now i'm just replying to my own question instead of each of you guys that resonded. Errr!
