If you tag someone in an edit to a post, does it notify?

  1. If I was to tag someone (using @username) when I edited a post, will it notify them? I've been doing it for a while, but I wasn't sure whether it did or not. Thanks in advance!

    It does not tag them, no. This is so you can’t tag someone and then remove the tag to spam or troll. :)
     
  3. What if I forgot the tag when I originally made the post, but edited it in before the person came online to see it? Will that notify?

    I know that if you edit in a tag to a post they've already seen, then it won't work.

    Nope. Tagging someone in an edit won’t notify them at all, regardless of whether they’ve viewed the thread or not :)
