Notices of comments on a G2G discussion?

Did something change recently? I rely on the e-mail notices that something has been posted in a G2G discussion I'm following, but I haven't been getting any such notices for a while & just realized that one discussion had recent activity I wasn't aware of. I thought maybe the default of having the box checked for e-mail notices changed, but I checked what I'd posted & the box was checked. But I'd posted a comment on an answer to the question & the activity was under the main question. I thought I used to get notices whenever anything was posted in the discussion, whether it followed a comment I had made or not.

Thanks!

In my experience, I get messages if someone answers a question I posted, if someone comments on the question I posted, if someone comments on an answer I posted, and if someone comments after a comment I posted.

However, I don't get messages if someone else adds another answer to a question that I answered, or if someone comments on a different answer than the one that I posted or commented on, or if someone adds a comment directly on the question after posted an answer or commented on an answer to that question.

Thanks Ellen! I guess I just never noticed that I wasn't getting an e-mail on everything. Now, more than a year later, I realize how cool the followed tags tweak was (http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/76776/small-fix-comments-answers-appear-custom-g2g-following-feeds - which is how I realized I'd missed a comment asking about something I'd done!).

Cheers, Liz
