If someone exemplaries your post, do you get notified?

Admittedly this is just a short question.

Do threads get an extra bump as well?

    yes and no

    in the context of the post, exemplary will show up above similarly voted but non-exemplary content... hitting the exemplary button does not count as replying, however, so will not bump up the recent activity of the thread

    I would love a message notification that a post had been given an exemplary label similar like getting gold on reddit. It would be great to be able to reply to the message to thank whoever labeled the comment, which could still keep things anonymous, unless the other person responds which could reveal their username.

    No notifications yet, though that's not a bad idea for a profile setting. It does multiply the weight of the votes cast, and each additional exemplary label increases that multiplier. I think it's at +50% right now, so 10 votes + 1 exemplary is the same as 15 votes.

    It's comments only right now. Someday when there's real competition for the front page something like it will probably exist for submissions too, but we're nowhere near needing it.

      Some larger subreddits have a thread linking to exemplary comments, as a way to encourage quality conversation. Maybe Tildes should have a page showing them someday?

      You can only label comments as Exemplary. To do so, you click on the "label" button underneath the comment and you choose "Exemplary" and then give a short description of why.
