Thread comment notifications are gone. Why?

I use the discussions quite a lot so people can help me understand mistakes I make and the like. But ever since about a year ago I no longer receive notifications when someone answers my questions.

I can now only follow a whole thread, which is annoying and most of the time useless, or not follow the thread at all, which renders the whole point of asking a question useless because you can't keep track of which questions you asked in which threads and check back every "x" amount of time if anyone responded.

Does anyone know what's wrong?

If this is a change introduced by Duolingo they should know that threads used to be a super useful tool and they are now useless.

it's been like this for a long time already and they promised to fix it "as soon as possible" but I doubt very much they're ever going to fix it

Is it a bug? I thought it was purposeful...
