Alright, I had a big long breakdown of a bunch of different scenarios I tested (auto-wiki category setting on/off, various levels of interaction with the wiki topic, etc), but I think I was able to summarize it to this:
- When a user manually watches a wiki topic, they are notified of edits to the first post
- When a user is watching a category, they are NOT notified when a wiki topic post is edited (unless of course it is their own).
So it looks like the feature is not working for auto-watched topics. This seem like it could easily be intentional, but I’m not sure.
One thought I had while testing this - would it make any sense for someone to automatically start watching a topic when they have made a wiki edit to the topic post? I feel like if I’ve edited a wiki topic, I’m somewhat invested in it at that point. Not sold this is a good idea, but thought I’d throw it out there.
Let me know if I should look at anything else with this!
