Feature Change: Feed / Notification Triggers
After about a week of observations and a long discussion this morning @philryuh and I have changed the system in how it sends notifications and adds to the feed in a small way related to comments. We were seeing a fun trend of great conversations that typically didn't need to send the post's author a ton of notiifications and fill the feed so we're adopting the same model as Reddit where only top level comments in a post notify the author and go to the feed.
There are some obvious exceptions of if the author is commenting as well and someone replies, then they get a notification since it was directed to them and if they're mentioned by their username they get a notification as well.
As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
