2 short questions

Hi Monks, I have two short questions which have been on my mind often enough to warrant a post:
  1. Is there a way to automatically know if someone has responded to a node I wrote? For example, a mail with the subject "Your node has been responded to" or something similar?
  2. A bit of a silly question, but what does "OP", as in "I think the OP's point about how members reacted.." stand for? I have seen this two letters fairly often but couldn't figure out what they mean and am quite curious :)

A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent

    Hello mrguy123!
    1. you can see in the chatterbox-box if someone responded to one of your nodes; you can set this in your settings, subsection message-settings
    2. OP means "original poster" - the one who wrote the starting node of the current thread
    HTH, Rata
      Original Poster - makes sense! I thought the P might stand for Perl but obviously not.
      Regarding the chatterbox, I have looked at the FAQ but couldn't find anything about responses to nodes. An hints on where it is?
        Try the following:
        1. go to your profile: mrguy123
        2. select "Edit your ... settings" (top line besides your picture)
        3. select message settings
        4. select "/msg me when there's a reply to one of my posts"
        HTH, Rata

    'I think the Orchestrating Provocateur's point about how members reacted..'? ;)

    OP is short for either "Original Post" or "Original Poster" depending on context (e.g. "In the OP..." vs. "The OP said...").

    The Chaterbox nodelet is also used to indicate if you have new messages. You can enable it and place it via your Nodelet Settings. You can also manually check your Message Inbox, which includes reply notifications.
