Missing notification on Moderator edit

i casually discovered that if a moderator edit your discussion in Coffee Corner, you do not receive a notification for it.

The example is here in my comments with the relative screenshots

i wonder if the same occurs for Q&A and/or blogs - answers - comments.

    Hello Simone,

    I definitely see the value in having such a notification as it will help our users exclusively be alerted that a moderator has made some changes to their content. But it may also be unnecessary in a lot of moderation scenarios. Moderators are already able to leave "moderator comments" on content that can be seen only by moderators and the original poster - generating a Notification for the user. When a moderator makes any major changes to the content, they are urged to leave such a comment so the content author knows what changes were made. This in addition to the fact that this information is already shown through Actions -> see revisions, some users may not want to be bothered by an additional notification. But thanks for the suggestion Simone. I will discuss this with IT.

    Thanks,

    Sajid

    • Thanks Sajid for your answer.

      My case was just a fix on a link, but an automatic notification would be better (a moderator could forget to alert, we are all humans, or at least i guess it!)
