An LJ Technical Poll

I don't always get right back to respond to comments on my posts. I sometimes have a feeling that people have moved on when I do get back to the comments and and thus they may never see my responses. As smillaraaq has pointed out to me, not everyone uses e-mail notifications. I'm trying to get an idea of how many of my f-list do, so I have a better idea of how quickly I should plan to respond.

So, question - with regard to responses to your comments on a post that's a few days old:

I get comment notifications by e-mail, so I should see your response
32(94.1%)
I often revisit posts on which I've written comments, so I may well see your response
1(2.9%)
When it's gone, it's gone! Chances are I won't see your response if several days have passed
0(0.0%)
Some other options that I will explain in comments
1(2.9%)
Prefer not to respond / it's complicated / etc.
0(0.0%)

I get comment notifications both by e-mail and delivered to my Inbox, since LJ seems to go through athese phases of not delivering the e-mail notifications every now and then.

Yes, I've noticed that, about the sporadic outages!

that said, sometimes my comment notifications don't work, -__- and that goes for me own posts when people comment as well XD

Yup - vierran45 just made the same point about the occasional failures in the notifications.

Yep, other than when LJ goes down, I'm usually fine. I generally only notice the outages if I've been waiting for comments that I don't get (an ongoing discussion with someone where I've been getting comments twice a day for several days and know there are more coming, for example).

It looks like most of your flist do get email notifications, though! Cool.

It wasn't designed as a deliberate backup, but I also get notices of comments via e-mail and in my in-box both here and at DW, so it doesn't make a difference to me how much later you get back to them.
