Do we get notifications about new comments in a solution?

When I browse a community solution that I don’t fully understand, I raise a question using the name of the author, assuming that this will send them a notification. Does the author get notification if mention or NOT mention their handle?

When they respond, I expected to get notification, but I did not. For example, in this thread, I raised a question to @SleeplessByte, to which he responded after a week, but I did NOT remember getting any email notification. When I landed on the solution page accidentally, I saw his response and I was surprised. Is there any setting that I have to turn on to get notification?

Unfortunately no. No notifications are sent at the moment.

There are plans to get threaded replies in there and have notifications automatically.

Excellent Derk - both would be useful.

Is there a way to merge the forum with the solutions so that the discussions below each solution becomes a forum post which is linked to the exercism using some mechanism? Just a suggestion for you to consider as most of the notification/threading functionality is already there in forums.

Good question.

The answer is probably: with enough dev time ;)
