YES! Absolutely. If I'm having a debate with someone, I would like to know when that person or someone has replied to it instead of having to check back myself. Many times I've forgotten about it and the debate just ends there and the other person thinks I chickened out of the rest of the conversation haha.
Yes! It's very annoying to have to remember every answer I've ever commented on recently, just in case I want to go back to it and see if I've gotten a reply. I think @-replies should actually work on here, too.
Yes there should be an alert, but there isn't so you have to remember to check back later for any replies to what you said. However it will tell you when you have commented on your own answer as if a new comment has been made lol. Pft.
At first I thought that would be a good idea, but then again, it's good as it currently is. Because otherwise it would lead the discussion astray from the actual question, which I see very often in normal forums.
So, I think not knowing when someone replies back in a comment I made has it's advantage, too.
Absolutely. That's something that has always irritated me. I don't have time to continually go back through every comment I've made and see if I need to respond to someone.
I get the impression GAG intentionally manages for a very quick death of questions. They want a quick turnover and once a question has died they want it to stay that way. I don't have anything concrete on which to base that...just observation.
