I thought I used to get notifications when someone made a comment about a comment I made on a story or a Post I made in the Forum. But I can't find where that option is. And I used to be able to look at past comments I've made on stories I would like to revisit, but can't seem to do that anymore. Are these features now gone?

Those are great thanks, but I guess there is no way to look at your past comment posts on past stories like we used to be able to do. In the past I could click on my name in the comment area and it would take me to a list of all my comments on any story present or past (like a history page). Unless I'm still overlooking it. Thanks again.

are you talking about in the blog or the forum? In the blog you are right, imo, there is no longer a reason to post comments since there is no way to know when someone responds to them unless you track down the article. IMO, responses are important since sometimes it shows a different view of things or provide additional info.

On the blog. And your right. I was going to post a few times today and passed on it because I'm tired of keeping track of what I've made comments on and waiting for replies. I like to see others point of views like you mentioned, it's very informative. But now I have six tabs open on different stories checking them every once in awhile to see if I have any comments on my comments, too much work.

You should still be able to visit: https://www.windowscentral.com/users/douttj and view all your comments and forum posts made but yeah, no notifications for the blog comments.

I guess now comes the dumb question. Why (no notifications on blog comments)? I guess maybe too technical or costs more to run. And next question, is it something that may be in the near future? Would it help if I bought some merchandise from your store like a mug or t-shirt? Thanks for your reply's.
