My startling discovery about those pesky comments

Oh, good. You’re reading my post wherein I reveal a most startling discovery about comments…or at least, it’s a theory.

The other day, I was returning comments on my actual post, and I did not see the little arrow that indicates that my reply to you had been sent and accepted. Usually, I respond to comments through my Dashboard or through my Notifications. Do you follow? I decided to visit my own post to respond because I had some lengthy comments. Thank you very much, my dear readers. In order to see your comments while responding to them, I choose this route. But in doing so, I did not see the little arrow that had shown that it had been “sent” for the recipient to view. This had never happened before. It was an Eureka moment. A ha!

I want to share this in the off-chance that you, yourself, have not experienced this moment. If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about and I’ve lost you, don’t worry. But, let me explain why I feel the need to share. Every so often, I comment on a post and I don’t receive a reply. Now, there’s no written rule that says you, as a blogger, must respond. I mean it’s nice thing to do and all, but that’s not why I’m writing this.

When I don’t get a response, I think to myself…Oh, my comment must have been stupid, not worthy of a response. Or, this blogger is just busy, tired, overwhelmed. I understand that one. And, sometimes, I blame WordPress. Stupid WordPress, all glitchy, stubborn and unreliable. However, in some cases, I come to find out that these bloggers did respond. I see the comment later on at their post, but I had never received it on my end. Yes, this means a return to their post. A couple of times this has happened where I checked just out of curiosity. Let’s face it, the comments are a big part of the blogging experience.

So, dear readers, this is my theory. I believe if you respond to a comment on your actual post, and you don’t get the fancy arrow that says you responded, your reader will not be notified that he/she has a reply sitting over at your blog.

What do you think? Did I solve some of your most pressing, blogging issues? Or, is this old news? Did I confuse the hell out of you? Am I completely wrong? Ever have a similar experience? Are some of your readers missing your comments? By all means, please weigh in. I’m curious. This post won’t mean anything without your feedback and comments. Comments, I mean we are talking comments here. We can even test it if you’d like.

And now, for Wednesday’s Wishes:

For my friend Shalagh, who is expecting to have her baby today or very soon. Best wishes for a smooth and safe delivery.

This is for Lisa at A Gripping Life. I couldn’t find Dionne, but I think Paul Anka does a fine job with this song.

  1. Occasionally, I do respond to a comment by going back to the post but I have never seen that arrow. My usual practice is to use the little drop down bubble that turns orange when you have a comment. Unfortunately, it often loses the response from me and then I have to start over. That’s when I either go to the comments page, find the comment and respond or go back to the post and respond on there. I will be keeping my eye out for that arrow now.

    1. Michelle,
      I’ve had similar frustrations returning comments, losing comments, having to start over. When I felt this way, I wanted to return to the post as well. My point is that I don’t think this works…I’ve been missing comments. So, I’m trying to get the bottom of this. We can test if you want….Thanks.

  2. i always use that orange thing in the upper right corner because it shows that arrow. sometimes i click to send the reply, and it gets hung up, doesn’t go through. usually, i click the X. then i click off to another person’s reply, then i go back and click “reply” again for that first comment, and the text from the reply i tried to send will still be in the reply box. then i click “reply” and it usually goes through the second time. i hope i explained that well.

  3. Amy,
    I usually respond in the notification bubble drop down but sometimes I get too far behind and resort to the dashboard comment area. What’s really bad is when I intend to respond but get distracted and then realize days or even weeks later that I left it hanging. With all the changes in the WP formatting I’m in constant adaptation mode.
    Now I think I want to go to Vegas…

  4. I have used all three methods – I prefer the orange bubble – and I have my settings set up so that i don’t have to approve comments – they just come (at least I think so when I respond from the actual post). I have found that at times, I used my notifications and on a whim clicked ‘latest’ and saw a whole SLEW that I never commented on (I suspect that the drop down from the orange comment bubble has a limit and I exceeded in in a rare moment of blogging heaven).

    I guess I should stop thinking bad thoughts about you, eh? Heee heeee just kiddddding….

      I’ve responded 3x to you and keep getting knocked off. Sweetheart, please know this isn’t about responding to comments so much as it is about receiving them. I see that I have been missing lots of comments. My theory is that when you post a comment on your page for your reader, he/she will not get this. I could be wrong. I didn’t get your Catwalk comment, for example. I had to go back to your post to read it. Just wondering why this happens.

  8. I think when this happens, it’s because the blogger responded to comments on the actual post page and forgot to click the ‘reply to’ tab and just added it as a new comment instead. We won’t get notified in that case. And you can tell that this was the case, because if you go back to the post page, you’ll see the blogger’s comment is not linked to your own. At least this has been my experience, but if this isn’t what happened to you, then I’m not sure. I hate to think I’m missing replies/ and or comments. 😦

  9. Ok, I always, well 99% of the time, go back to my actual post to respond, I wait till I have several replies and then go to it and do them all. I know that people must get a notification that I responded, at least some of the time, because sometimes it is very quick after I have replied to their comment that they come back with a reply to my reply! Have you had notifications that I’ve replied to comments you’ve left on my blog?

    I have experienced the thing of not receiving a notification that I have received a reply to my comment on someone else’s blog, but then later going back to see if they did reply, and seeing that they did. It’s all a mystery! I’ve never noticed the arrow.

I won’t even know about it until I just happen to read their post. Other times there will be a pingback thing. No idea why.

    I also found a legitimate comment in my spam filter, which is usually so good. So I guess it’s good to check there also.

  14. I’m not sure if this matters for the “arrow” which I have never noticed before on my blog, but you get a very healthy level of comments, anyway… as I put this comment in there are two checkboxes below the comment entry box. One to “Notify me of follow-up comments via email” and “Notify me of new posts via email”. I think these remember the setting you last put in and default initially to checked. I have them unchecked, so I will not be notified if you respond, by email, but I should know your responded via WordPress. Not sure if these matter. Good luck solving the mystery!

Now I know that either you were not hallucinating or that perhaps I am hallucinating as well. Well, then I read some more of the comments on this important subject and I am sorry about the whole thing.

    1. Oh, Stephen you have nothing to be sorry about. I thought I had an answer to the problem and it turns I didn’t. But others have realized it’s a problem and my friend send a tweet to the people at WordPress. Maybe we’ll get some answers soon. I hope so.

  25. Hi Amy,
    Thanks for the post. I think I’m confused more than ever now by the comments, though – must re-read, more slowly. At least I had found the ‘unread’ comments on the notifications page. But they seem to remain unread even if you’ve replied via your blog post.
    (Apologies for commenting so late – I’m having a bit of a catch up.)

  26. I will look for that arrow as well. I use the quote box up in the corner to see when someone has replied to a comment, but as of the last couple days, it hasn’t been working.

    I try to reply to every comment posted on my site, but sometimes I’m better about it than other times. That gets worse when, as now, I’m playing several days of catch-up.

    1. Smak, I hear that there, indeed, was a problem and that is has recently been solved. I hope we don’t have to worry any longer. There was a glitch. So, I guess proceed as normal!

      We all do our best with comments. There’s only so much time in a day. You’re doing great!

      1. Your reply was my first evidence that it’s working again. Thank goodness it was a glitch. I was afraid it might be some new strategy. “Our data shows that WordPress Users don’t like that feature, so we’ve done away with it.”

  27. This seems like a valid theory. In fact, I’m going with it. And it must also be true that all of those brilliant comments that I’ve left all over the place have, in fact, been answered. Yes, they have.
    How nice to know that now. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks! I’ve heard that the problem has been fixed by the folks at WordPress. Good news! My little theory didn’t hold water, but I appreciate everyone’s comments. Hopefully, we won’t have to worry any longer.

      1. Oh…sorry…There definitely was a glitch, so I think you can hold to that explanation. It’s just be recently fixed, or so I gathered. I think it was glichty for a quite a long time, too.

  28. I’m so confused, but glad you figured it out. I’ll have to come back tomorrow to learn.
    I’ve noticed that my comments are coming up in my little notification place this past week.

    1. I’m not so sure they fixed it. Just know that if you didn’t notified of a comment from me…you can always check my post. Most likely, it will be sitting on my post. It’s okay, I was confused too. Another interesting place to look is your “Unread” folder. That seems to be a limbo land for comments. I hope all is well.
