What is a "Reputation Comment"

MNblockhead

A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
In the notification button drop-down, I'm used to seeing notification for new posts that quote a post of mine and for XP and laugh awards. Recently, I started see a new notification type: "reputation comment." It says I have "1" reputation comment. When I click on "reputation comment" from the notification button drop-down, it takes me to a list of "subscribed threads with new posts." Unlike the other notification categories, clicking through does not make the notification go away.

Is "reputation comment" just a way to show threads I've subscribed to with new posts?

Curious.
I've have 1 Reputation notice for a while and just got another a day or two ago. It's a notification I can't clear...

Is it browser specific? Are you using a web browser or a mobile app? There was talk in another thread of something similar and being limited to an app.

I first saw it using Chrome on Windows. I just now logged in from Firefox on Linux, a fresh install that I have never used to access this site, and see it there too.

It's nothing to do with your browsers, guys. I know what it is. If it's very low on the list of things to do.

I'd like to request this issue be prioritized. I use the "notifications" to check if there's anything I should reply to, and this issue makes this harder. It's not that big of a deal, but it is materially affecting my enjoyment of the site.

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
You really do like being unhelpful don't you, Guv?

Try something like what Nagol wrote when you feel ready for a change, thanks.
Before I say something negative, I try to put myself in someone else's shoes.

In this case, I would try to remember that Morrus has to respond to a lot of stuff, moderate comments, deal with extraneous stuff on the board, and have a life too. Especially when other people (like Nagol, for example) can also fill in details. :)

OTOH, I also remember that I don't always practice what I preach, so there's that.

Yeah. Exactly how important should it be that he describe in detail functionality that had been removed, compared to the other stuff that goes on around here?

Given that it took over a year and a half to make the comment... it doesn't seem like it was really all that important at all.

No flips for you!

And that's more important than responding to [MENTION=12731]CapnZapp[/MENTION]?! Pull the other one, it's got bells on!

So I just got one of these, and found this thread. I know this isn't high on the list of priorities, but now that we're more than two years after the issue was first raised, is it anywhere near the front of the queue?
