Improve response email text

Improve response email text

Short, concise description of the idea
When someone responds to a comment, the email sent out (for those who've enabled the notification option) is painfully ungrammatical, using a plural pronoun with a singular verb.

Full description of the idea
Since the responder's name is already known, it should be used in lieu of "their response was":

John (johndoe) replied to your LiveJournal comment in which you said:

> blah blah blah

johndoe's reply was:

blah blah blah

An ordered list of benefits
  • It'll be grammatically correct
    Sets a good example *smile*

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None; respondant's name is already known

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Replace "their" with "{username}'s"
Tags: notifications: email, § no status
  • Post a new comment
