Alerts

I want to let you know, EP, that I've lost my alerts today---it's no longer letting me know when I have new mail, new story comments, new whiteboard posts, etc. I have checked my account settings to make sure those are enabled, and they are. (By the way, I LOVE that we can enable which alerts we want to see and which ones we don't!) I figure while the EP staff is making some changes on the site, those kinda got lost. I just wanted to let you know in case you are unaware that they are missing.

Also, I have a suggestion for another alert I would like to see. I would like to know when any of my answers to other people's questions have a reply from the question asker. Oftentimes, I think an asker's reply to an answer goes by unnoticed, unless the person who answered goes back to check on the question. I think it'd be nice to be alerted when there is a reply; sometimes those replies can be pretty important.

This isn't like an "omgosh I need it now" kind of thing, but I've been thinking on it for a while and figured I'd better write about it before I forget again. =)

thanks
