Not a bug Mention alert for watched thread received rather than reply alert

I don't think we changed anything here and if I recall correctly I usually expect a mention alert to take preference to a reply alert.

Don't you use TagMe add on on your own board? That could be relevant.

I do indeed use Tag Me. However I assumed that I was correct as I mentioned the 1.4 behaviour in this thread and Brogan didn't correct me.

XF 1.4 - Tagging/Mentions Alerts Not Always Working

I've just tested with Tag Me disabled and it's the mention alert that is received. With it enabled it's the reply alert that's received. So it is indeed the Tag Me add-on that's at fault.

I was only commenting on the two alerts per post issue, rather than the specific alert in each case.
