Email Notifications for Question / Comment activity?

In the old SCN, I used to get emails when someone would answer / comment on one of my questions, but that doesn't happen in the new system. Does this feature no longer exist, or does it need to be turned on some place? I do have email turned on under Account Settings > Communication Settings.

    I can't seem to find it either. It is ridiculous that the "new and improved" commnity site should lack so basic and crucial a feature wherewithout any forum is simply defective. Surely SAP are not collecting clicks on their banners and therefor forcing users to login every time?

    I like to read the discussions that I follow in my mail reader and login only when I have something to write.

    This is not currently available. I noticed that many forum members relied this functionality. You can navigate to the Idea Place, check what other suggested and up-vote an idea of your choice. There is some chance that if an idea gets a lot of votes, that the SAP team might consider implementing it in the future.

        Thinking the same thing. Didn't I just read a few posts from the new community guy that said he was asked to delete/close all the old Idea Place suggestions?

          Yes. and he was only brought on in May. Which meant to me that if he was tasked with reviewing and closing them based on what was in Beta, it tells me there is no way they were looked at during the design phase as there would have been no need for him to go back and review them.

          Had they thought about it, when initially reviewed, they could have marked them then as "2B in new SCN community" or "Not planned".

        This is why I wrote 'some' chance :)

        We have a special phrase in Bulgarian for such occasions: "Тате каза, че ще ми купи колело, ама някой друг път."

          Hm, for some reason I was expecting "колело" to be a pickaxe. :) Slavic languages are sometimes weirdly disconnected. :)

          Here is what Google translate makes of it: "Daddy said he'd buy me a bicycle, but some other time.". Indeed.

        I am hopeful - at least the Idea has made it to under review

    Brian, this is # 5 on my blog:

    Ironically, I wrote this blog exactly with the goal to help the long time SCN members but I have no way whatsoever to promote it on New SCN other than giving a link in the comments/answers.
