We have one topic where new community members are introducing themselves and I’m seeing lots of cases where I’d like to get into a more in-depth conversation on a tangent to the thread topic.
If I reply to a comment, it shows up nicely under a
1 Reply link, but also at the end of the topic. I’m unsure how notifications work in this case, but it seems like things might get too chatty if I go through and respond to each new member in the same thread.
Is there a recommended way to reply to an existing discussion about a new topic? I thought there might be a feature to reply as a new topic, and I searched around for it. Seems like this feature may have existed previously but has since been removed.
So I have two questions:
If I go through and reply and have lots of tangential conversations with the users introducing themsleves in one topic, will it create a ton of irrelevant notification noise for everyone on the thread?
Is there a way to reply to a post as a new topic? If not, as a feature how do you approach this case?
