Why do some Gagers never tag the person when talking to them in opinion comments?

NOT TALKING ABOUT NEWBIES! With newbies it's understandable, they're new, they don't know how this site works yet.

But there are a few Gagers (who are well known around here, high Xper levels, been here for a long time and all that) that don't tag the person they have a conversation with. You know, when someone comments on their opinion, they respond without tagging them.

Do they not want the person to get the notification? Are they against the mention feature? What's the reason?

It just doesn't make sense. I don't even know why it bothers me, but it does a little bit whenever I see that happening. This also affects me if I'm talking to someone of that crew... I'm not gonna go back bazillion times to that question to see if they answered my comment x_x

Updates:
@Alexious and @Iron_Man are the ones I've noticed being guilty of this the most! Care to share why?

  • I could see several reasons.
    1. Gag has been around for a while. A person could be an original gager and just get back into gag after a long hiatus and not be aware of mentions. It's only been around a year or so.
    2. They are emotionally charged and are so caught up in a flame war they forget to mention.
    3. They're idiots.

    • Yeah right you come on here and you spew out crap trying to tag me to start a flame war. You have many accounts, you jump from account to account and play your games on an account you dont mind losing. How do you know so much about my other questions because your a stalker that's why I made my profile private from trolls like you

    • @Iron_Man I only have one account and if you double your IQ and add 30 you'd be able to remember when someone posts an absolutely absurd question or comment. While you idolized the WWE, I was reading a book. So sorry to burst your last brain cell. Sorry @MissNowhere for blowing up your thread. Iron _ man I'll give you the last word so you'll be able to sleep better. The stage is now yours.

  • They sometimes annoy me a lot -_- I always have to go back to that question just to see if they have replied. Some people just assumed that I can receive the notifications even if they don't tag me, and get mad when I didn't reply them. Like wth man?

  • Well as you can see from your answers, there are some here who have reached Guru level and still think that the user is magically notified without being tagged. Amazing how some can use something that much and still not understand it.

  • Sometimes the site software does it by itself, other times I have to copy paste it: easy on a computer. Long tap copying isn't always easy on a 4 inch phone screen.

  • Maybe because they're used to the fact GAG does it automatically when you click the reply icon under the comment itself. If you mistake and don't see that there's no mention, things could go wrong if you're trying to be quick :o
    I think I generally do it correctly though I'm not 100% sure I've never forgotten it...

      If you comment on someone else's opinion, and if they don't tag you when they answer you, you do not get a notification!!!
      You and Alexious basically don't do it for the same reason.

    • But the thing is I have posted on there post and it was not even there thread before and they find it and we have talked. Ok my friend I have given you my Answer I hope its helped you

  • maybe they didn't realize

  • I actually don't know, because they can click the button in the bottom right corner to tag them without having to type the name in. Makes things much easier than at the start.

  • Sometimes I do it on purpose just so they won't reply back but yet technically I did give a response to their questions so they can't say I ignored them just that I "forgot" to tag them.

  • if thereΒ΄s just one person you commuicate with, do you call their name, everytime you say anything in real live? i think not and this is why i think itΒ΄s not necessary on here. though it kinda is, if multiple people join one discussion in the comments.

    • Well now you'll know lol

  • in my opinion, it is because these people simply forget that the other person won't be automatically be notified.

    • They will totally be automatically notified, unless you're talking to a different person... like if I was talking to another guy right here, in your response box, the other guy wouldn't get a notification... but you still would.

  • I know from one level 5 girl who simply didn't know that you could simply use the reply button on the comment and automatically tag that way... so maybe there are other people like that or some who just have no clue how tagging works and who are not interested in learning it.

    if you have a discussion with someone then I can't imagine why you wouldn't wanna get them a notification...

  • Posts which directly descend underneath their post speak for themselves.

    If i wanted to say something important (deserving of notification), i'd private message them.

    • see how we both corrected ourselves? even though mine failed to do so...

      that's called OCD. i understand why something so trivial bothers you. Let it go.

  • OK. So, I think that only when you comment on someone else's opinion (not our own opinion) and then they reply to it without tagging you that you don't get the notification. All other cases, you and the other person gets the notification. Isn't that correct? Probably, most people don't know, I too never knew it until recently.

    • But they don't get the notification! They have to always go back to the question and check. Is it really that hard to tag? You don't even have to write it out, you can just click on the chat icon next to their comment and it tags automatically. 😛

    • They are likely doing that to differentiate between the opinion owner and the asker. If you comment on the asker's comment to an opinion, it needs to be clear which one you are directing it to, though I just say "Asker" without the "@".
