No notification is edited

Hello,

It appears there is no notification if a user edits a mention into a post after it is written.

(e.g. I forgot to mention someone and wanted to edit that in, they do not receive a notification)

Notifications works in new posts.

Is this a bug? Or a missing setting in the ACP on my part?

Many thanks,
VV

No, this is by design.

Thanks Paul,

May I ask the logic for this design decision?

Because there is no easy way to detect if the mention already exists before the edit. So if I would send it it might cause multiple notifications
