[request] Notifications when someone comments on your review?

It appears that if someone comments on a review you wrote (ISP, webhost, etc) that no notification is sent to the reviewer.

I updated one of my reviews this morning and went back to double-check something and noticed two new comments. If someone takes the time to comment on my review, I'd like to be notified so that I can respond if necessary.

As an aside, the same is true for the Digital Imaging Gallery. It would be nice to receive notifications there as well.

Thoughts?

Re: Notifications when someone comments on your review?

I can see my review, but have no idea where even to look for comments (sure I'll eventually find though) , so a notification would be nice (also in the gallery)

This is another suggestion that would make reviews better.

If you look at the review you made, then click 'see full discussion' link at the end, then click "add fav" you will be notified in your favorite forum list when there are new or updated topics in this mini-forum.

Ok, I've done that for all my reviews but it seems like an unnecessary step. As with almost everything else here, if you post something you have the option of a reply notification.

Having said that, my original request still stands. If there are no plans for change then I suggest that something be added to the site FAQ (and maybe a notice after the review is added) so that other members are aware that additional action(s) are required to "follow" their review.

Thanks for the heads-up on the work-around though.

I agree, I just checked, and there is a check box that states "notify me of responses" yet even though I check it, I NEVER seem to get notified.

I'd rather see the option to comment on a review removed.

Could you elaborate? I don't quite understand what your saying. I was under the assumption that reviews can't be removed (except by a mod), only modified. as it should be.

I don't think your review should have the option for others to comment.

Here, you can start the vote: »[request] Remove option to comment on Reviews.

Reviving an old topic with cause.

I followed those steps and added the discussions from all my reviews to my favorite forum list. Tonight I went to update a review and found two new comments...

Is it really that much trouble to have the system send a PM when a comment is made? The workaround just doesn't cut it.

This is a late update but actually I noticed that reviews DO have a notification system attached. If you go to 'Your..' 'Reviews..'
then click edit on your ISP review, you'll see a checkbox which says "notify me of responses".

If this is checked then when someone replies to your review, you will get an email. It has always been this way, but only for reviews that were emailed in.

It now works, via IM, for reviews made while logged in.
