Alice asks a question. I reply to it. Alice comments on my answer. I automatically get notified because it's my answer.
Instead let's say I ask a question & Alice replies to it. I comment on Alice's answer. And then when Alice replies to my comment on her answer to my question, does she need to tag me? Or will I get automatically notified because I am the original questioner?
I remember that much earlier, this didn't happen automatically.
i.e. earlier the questioner got notified automatically only on comments on the question itself but not on answers.
But recently, I think this has changed. Just wanted to confirm if it's true because I still continue to explicitly tag when I reply to the questioner's comments on my answer. If it's confirmed I will stop doing it.
When I comment on someone else's question, the page doesn't allow me to tag the questioner. But I am still allowed to tag the questioner in comments on answers. Hence my confusion.
I recently got a notification from a comment where I wasn't tagged - screenshot of the comment, it doesn't contain a tag to me & it's a comment on someone else's answer to my question.
This was the comment (if you see the comment, the person didn't explicitly tag me in the comment)
It was a comment on this answer - https://crypto.stackexchange.com/a/104020/3941
I was the questioner for this answer.
Hence my question
