When a post is moved to a new topic by a moderator, the moved post's author is not «Watching»


(Discourse.PRO) #1

When a post is moved to a new topic by a moderator, the moved post’s author does not have the «Watching» notification level the new topic.

Also happens when moving out of messages


When a private message is moved to a new topic, the message’s author does not have the «Watching» notification level for the new topic

When a reply is moved to a new topic, the notification flow is disconnected

Slowly untangling us from various split / merge bugs has been on our list for a while. @Osama can you take this?

When you post a new topic it is always considered “watched” by you. So we should also force you to watch it if your new topic is a result of a split.

Eg:

Topic 1 (sam is watching):

  • Sam
  • Bob (split here)
  • Jane

New Topic 2 (bob is watching)

  • Bob
  • Jane

When a reply is moved to a new topic, the notification flow is disconnected

The other thing that’s weird is posts moved to a different (or new) topic will show up as unread to you, even if you’ve already read them. Lots of quirks here, it may take some time to work through them, but we have a lot of accrued technical debt here and it’s probably time to pay down that debt…
