What would you like to do?
things I wish github notified me about

the new github notifications (https://github.com/blog/1204-notifications-stars) leaves me wanting more!

  • when someone comments on a gist that I either own or have also commented on
  • when someone comments on a commit (in a project that I'm not part of) that I have commented on
  • when someone makes a commit to a fork of one of my repos

notifications settings should let you choose whether or not to receive emails for the above things. there should also be a web UI that shows you a list of all comments/messages for the above scenarios. at the moment https://github.com/notifications only shows you github issue names which is less useful than showing the actual message (the old notifications page showed actual messages)

Ack! I just realized a friend commented on a private gist of mine a month ago asking a question. I searched for a way to get notifications for new gist comments and THIS PAGE was the first result. GITHUB!!!!!!

Google search for "gists how to get notification comments" and this pops up.

I love the new interface. I'm glad they added some new search functionality (now I can search through my own gists). Doesn't look like I can specifically search through other people's gists though. :(

I'm going to contact support and send them this gist link. :)

It'd also be cool if they built-in the emoticons (like they have when creating issues on repos).

I also had a comment sitting on one of my gist's and had no idea about it. Luckily I randomly went to it and noticed. Notifications would be great.

The irony is that the OP will never see any of these +1s because of a flawed notification system :-\

I have bookmarked:

https://gist.github.com/:username?sort=updated&direction=desc

and check manually and regularly, almost everyday, just to make sure I don't miss any. But unfortunately, that's only for things happening to my Gists. If I comment on someone's Gist, I will have to save the link and go back to check on the Gist later. But that seems a waste of time, since the Gist owner and others probably wouldn't get any notifications.

Wait a minute, what am I doing right now? Just wasted another couple of minutes!
