Replying to comments (bug)


#1

Anyone else finding that sometimes when you reply to a specific post within a thread, the person to whom you’re replying is not mentioned.

Eg:


vs

Used the reply button against someone else’s post in exactly the same way each time but with different results, in threads like the Video Game Thread with a few conversation hapenning between infrequent posters at times it can be confusing.

Yes, it’s suuuuuuper frustrating!


#3

There are two reply buttons. One at the bottom of a post (for replying directly to that particular post), the other is the blue one at the bottom of each thread (for posting in general).


#4

Yeahhh has happened to me, too. Although it fixed itself after a while? Really weird…


#5

Yeah, but sometimes when you press reply, and it says the person’s username to the left, like below, it just doesn’t submit as a reply for some reason


#6

Inception!


#7

I noticed that too! Like, I see that for some reason it wasn’t a reply as I had intended it, and then when I come back a few minutes later it’s a reply??? Like what?


#8

Well I’m glad it’s not just me


#9

Yes exactly! And I always thought I forgot to click reply or something!


#10

Yes, this!

Edit: Happening to everything in this thread right now
Did this

yet I get


#11

The struggle is real…


#12

Interestingly, looking at @Kumirei post #7, the replies drop-down show both Kiwi’s and my own but against the actual responses, Kiwi’s looks like it’s a reply and mine does not.

I’m bugged by this bug… it’s buggy!

:beetle: A BUG!!!

@syrusd YES.
At least 50% of the time for me, if not most of the time, I am experiencing this issue. So then I click on EDIT to add the person with an @ and see that apparently it is a reply to that person… Some of the time… Yet there still isn’t the little avatar with the arrow showing up on my post after closing/saving it.

This has been happening to me all across the forum, in various categories and threads, both on mobile and on PC. Quite annoying, actually.

I was just thinking of reporting this myself a few hours earlier, so I thank you for beating me to it!


#15

Yep, we’re frustrated with the one that doesn’t properly reply to individuals. Maybe you’ll get this, but because of the bug maybe you won’t…

(Test test.)

EDIT: Well, that time it worked, but I really wasn’t expecting it to because it feels like in my case it usually doesn’t.


#16

It doesn’t show when you’re replying to the last post in the thread.

E.g. This is a reply to AnimeCanuck but it won’t show as such (because it’s kind of obvious)


#17

I really don’t like that that’s how it works, then


#18

Why though?

Btw we had confirmed that the person being replied to does still get a notification, whether the pic shows up or not.

Edit: so carlos was the last when I hit reply but then not by the time I hit send and now his pic shows up.


#19

testing replying to myself being last in the thread.


#20

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!
