The e-mail tells me I have a comment. I type in the http:// etc/member/ and am told that the page is not available. I can only find replies to my comments if I can remember what project I was looking at and commented about. Is there an easier way of reading the replies?

Sometimes the timing is bad.
If some spammer manages to get a posting done that is not deleted before the stats are updated you will get a notification.
But usually the team already removed the spam so there is nothing to see or find.
In any case you should see some text of the reply with your notification.
A search in the topic page will find it if existing.

And no there is logic that I know of that would place a new comment to an older reply at the top of the list, or a new reply for that matter....

It would really help if there was a button to click on to send you to your comments. I have not been able to find my comments unless I can find the project that I made a comment about. This is very frustrating.

I posted a 2nd response to AngryRedhead's 2nd comment, but it does not appear when she views the Comments on my Instructable.  It does appear on my screen when I view the Instructable, but the number of comments listed when I view the Published page is one comment less than I see when I view the Instructable.  I am writing about the Instructable "A Precise Table Saw from an Electric Handsaw."

Ask her if she can see it now.  Your comment got caught in one of our filters for a little while because it had a lot of links in it (tell tale behavior from spammers - sorry you were wrongly profiled).  Anyway, it looks like it has since been reviewed and made live on the site, so hopefully everythings good to go.  Let me know if things seem otherwise.  Best - Noah

Your comment tracker only shows comments that are made directly on Instructables or Forum Topics (etc) that you wrote. But you get notified of any comment in a thread you commented in, in case you are following the thread. In other words, they aren't exactly the same thing.

Also, we expanded the notifications to include subscriptions - are you subscribed to anyone? If so, you'll get notifications for other things they post, as well as comments on your items. Check your subscriptions at https://www.instructables.com/you/subscriptions .
