Sometimes, it becomes necessary to notify more than one user (using the @) in the same comment. However, the current system allows notifying only one user in the same comment.

  1. Why this limit?

  2. Can we have more?

  • Are you aware that the post's author is always notified?

  • My guess, it's a single field with the user's UID in the comment record in the database. No need to make a horribly in-effecient database adding loads of fields that don't usually get used or introducing processing time for record parsing that is almost never used. Feb 20, 2014 at 21:49

    @guntbert: Yes. I may want to notify two users on my post very often than not.

  • It would be good to have something like this... - @hbdgaf if a user has two post two comments to notify two users, would that be more inefficient? :)
