Yes I do realize that the comments are primarily meant to introduce improvements in the post being commented on. And also that if any subsequent commenters want my feedback, they will @ me explicitly. But even if this is not done, I would prefer to know what has been subsequent activity around the post which I commented on. Maybe the @ has been forgotten, or maybe there are some other reasons for me to react to further developments. I gather right now the only way is to revisit my comments via the activity tab. Could not I be notified when any kind of activity of mine has been followed by some other activity?

Besides, in some (maybe indirect) way my comments may result in, say, edits of the post without me being notified. Could that be detected somehow too?

    $\begingroup$ I removerd the feature-request It should only be used for making a precise suggestion for a new feature. Instead, I added discussion since beyond getting information about the current situation you seem to be interested in discussing how (what exactly) could/should be done. (If you actually want this to be a feature request you should be more precise; for example, what does "any kind of activity" mean?) $\endgroup$ – user9072 Jun 15 '14 at 9:20

    $\begingroup$ @quid OK thanks, I will think about it. If I'll manage to come up with a precise formulation I will edit the post accordingly. $\endgroup$ – მამუკა ჯიბლაძე Jun 15 '14 at 12:40

    $\begingroup$ You mean something like a “follow” feature — not the “favourite” star — so that any changes to that question are mentioned in your inbox. I can see the use of such a feature. $\endgroup$ – jmc Jun 17 '14 at 8:29

    $\begingroup$ I honestly wouldn't know, how to write your name in a comment; so maybe using a latinized name would result in more @ before it. $\endgroup$ – Manfred Weis Jun 26 '14 at 11:39
