Do you want live notifications when people reply to your posts?

I’m sure this is a very basic question, but please could you explain:

  • who this is shown to
  • who it affects
  • what it affects?

For example:
Is it only shown to admins and until it is enabled, no one gets notifications for private messages or mentions or anything?

Or is it shown to every user and until they enable it they personally won’t get any Discourse notifications?

Or is it related to the category or topic it appears above and only affect replies to that topic / within that category?
