Welcome to Codidact Meta!

"User was not notified" incorrectly displayed in comments.

I just had an incorrect "user wasn't notified because they haven't participated in the discussion" warning (I can't recall the exact wording).

What I did:

  • Responded to a comment here: https://meta.codidact.com/posts/284526, specifically this one.
  • First thing I did was typing @ and 3 letters for the user name I was responding to. The site finds it, auto-completes it and their user name popped up in blue text.
  • I wrote the comment and everything looked fine.
  • Then I decided to make a minor edit to the comment. Now the username of the person I notified turned red and I got the mentioned warning, even though I had not modified that part of the comment.
  • Refreshing the comment page made the error go away. So it might be a temporary display glitch after editing a comment.
