This is actually already possible if you allow root to message you whenever a reply is made to one of your posts. (It's available in your user settings.) Unfortunately, this would only draw attention from one
monk - in this case, merlyn
. What if merlyn
doesn't have the time or ambition to follow up? It would be nice if, in some way, you could let the whole community know. In many cases, maybe the follow-up question wouldn't be to an individual response; maybe the follow-up question is a reply to the original post, which means that only the original poster would receive a message saying that they had a reply...to their own post!
Skepticism is the source of knowledge as much as knowledge is the source of skepticism.
