Shouldn't GitHub notify people that liked an issue when that issue is closed?
Would be nice if people that have shown interest in a bug or a feature can be notified when that bug is fixed or that feature has been released.
There are "notifications" too but only few use them.
@markosaric I subscribe to threads if I'm interested in knowing when it's closed or how it's going. I think this is the intended way.
"Like" is just an emoji response to a comment, which happens to the top comment a lot of times.
@celia yeah that's the intended way but very few people use it like that. i usually tell people to subscribe to the thread to get notified about the progress but in most cases they simply like the issue and then they wonder why there was no notification
@markosaric That's probably one for the GitHub UX people. 😅
@celia true :)
Maybe they could add notifications as an important issue action and put it upper on the screen (see screenshot attached), near the “New issue” link.
@markosaric don't forget to call it Microsoft Github because that's what it is.
