If you make a comment to someone's question will they always receive it?

the comment will be delivered unless you're "ignored" by the user. whether the comment is actually read, especially if notifications are off, is another story.

Assuming things are working right at SOH headquarters, they *should* get a notification of your reply, *unless* they have comment reply notifications switched off.

It's possible that they may not see the notification before it cycles through the Notification page, which can hold 50 notifications, though if (a) they're involved in one or more very active threads such that they're receiving lots of new notifications in a short period of time and simply miss it, or (b) they're away from SOH for a while and receive 50 more notifications more slowly that still "flush it out."

The comment is still there in the poll's comment section, of course, so even if they miss the notification they may still bump into it. Believe it or not, there was a time when SOH didn't have notifications (and the web version still doesn't). I'm not sure how very active users coped!

Threads with cowboy tend to flood my notifications, yet I can't resist!

Their notifications may be blocked by others

I don't understand the question.

Like if I post a comment in this poll? If you have that specific notification enabled, you should always see it. But as usual, @susanr is the person to talk to about this one.

Thanks; I was about to reply anyway & just put it above. I hope I understood the question correctly!
