Here is my experiment, and my findings:
In the above pic I replied to myself, but a "# replies" didn't appear on the post I replied to, "testing post #1
" (refer to blue ink on snip). And there wasn't a "replied to Alex Amberblast" on the testing post #2
(like the below:).
So... if someone replied to a post of mine without tagging me, and replied right after the post was made (so it was directly under it), how was I to know it was a reply to me? I continued this experiment:
In the above, testing post #3
was a reply to the testing zone topic itself. My testing post #2
doesn't have a "replied to-" on it, neither does the testing post #1
have a "# replies" caret on.
That very last post you can barely see in the above snip, is my testing post #4
. It is a reply to my testing post #1
, and now
we have a caret with # of replies on testing post #1
. the "replied to Alex Amberblast" is still missing from post #2
, but can be found on post #4
, is this a glitch, or am I overlooking something?
I hope I wasn't to overly complicated.
VERY LONG POST
