Notifications during conversations/threads?

So, I am pretty new here - just about two months in, most of which I rarely looked at the message boards. Now that I've found that I'm interested in some of the topics, I'm struggling with following the threads in terms of whether someone responds to me. I see a setting for receiving notifications when someone responds to your own topic, but I have never posted my own topic except for this. Is there a tool for tracking when someone replies to just a comment?

I did a search and saw that others have posed this question before, but not super recently and I might have missed where the question or issue was ever resolved. I feel like I'm being rude if someone answers and then I don't respond, but then again, I don't really like digging through a long thread to find out, either.

Any tips? Thanks in advance.

    I have trouble with this too. I mainly use MFP through my Iphone app and can rarely keep track of any conversations or threads- it requires constant checking back in to see how a conversation is going ( unless its posted on my wall in which case I get an email).
    The app doesn't have a lot of the features of the website so I cant be sure how the web based stuff works- but there is no notification option that I can see right now lol.

    Yes, I am typically on the laptop because it's definitely more streamlined, while I use the phone app typically only for logging. I thought maybe going to "recent posts" or the news feed, where it shows that I commented, would at least take me back to where I left off, but it goes to the original post. Hmmm....

    As far as I can tell, and I've explored this site a lot, there's no way to receive these sorts of notifications. What I've found works is to just click "my topics" and see if anyone has responded since you did.

    I could be wrong. If anyone has found a way to get these notifications, as well as notifications for when people respond to my remarks on another user's status, I would LOVE to hear about it.

    Checking through 'my topics' as suggested above is the only way right now.

    I saw someone had suggested on another thread to get a notification if someone quotes you.

    Personally I don't like too many notifications, it can get a bit spammy.

    I also agree that you should be taken to the page you were last at rather than the start of a thread.

    This probably belongs in the website suggestions/feedback section, where the MFP people can take on board what the users want.

    They do listen!

    I wouldn't mind Facebook-style notifications.
