Not being able to reply to the comments on my threadThis is one huge problem with ISC. Most of the discussion forums like Yahoo and Quora have a reply button. A person posts his query and certain amounts of comments are done. When the person finds a comment interesting or convincing, he replies the commenter for further info.
This happens with social media too. "Reply" tool is as effective as "comment" tool.
But things in ISC are very different. You cannot directly reply to a comment. Yes, I don't call them a response, I call them a comment. Because most of the responses made in the forum are meaningless. Either the members repeat the same thing the author has written or completely deviate from the main plot. Which is the reason why I feel they're comments rather than responses.
Most of the times, the responders find some previous responses interesting and post a separate comment addressing that response. For instance, a member F found my response interesting, he would either post a response addressing me or simply write "@aditya".
This doesn't give me a notification. I'll never know that my response has a reply. And by chance, if I reopen the thread, sometime later, the moment had already passed.
I've lost a lot of opportunities because of the absence of a "reply" button.
Can nothing be done about this? I'm sure there are a fine number of members who feel the same way.
