This feature does not exist in the new Inward Quest software.
Instead, you can subscribe to any questions you are interested in and get notified of any new answers/comments immediately by email.
Or you can go to your user profile and set your email notification settings to be automatically notified when you have comments or answers on questions. Choose "User Tools" then "email notification settings".
Alternatively, if you use any RSS readers then you can subscribe individually to any questions you are interested in.
The @UserName Syntax
If you use, for example, @Joe in a comment, an email notification will be immediately sent to Joe if he has his email notifications activated. You can check this is the correct "Joe" because a link will be automatically generated that links to the profile of the person being contacted.
For example, @Joe. That was an interesting answer will send an email to Joe with the message "That was an interesting answer".
For this reason, it would be good practice to always use @UserName in all your comments if you want the other person to know you have made a comment.
You beat me to asking this question. I see my points going up but have no idea where and if anyone has commented me on anything now. On the bright side it does a good job of exterminating any bickering because no one has any idea what anyone said unless they happen upon it by accident and even if they answer there is little chance of a reply back.

Can the "Post Comments Everywhere" privilege be set to a lower threshold, perhaps 10 Karma?
(Karma, heh. Irony.)
