does adding a thumbs up or other emoji to a comment on an issue count as "participating"?

Does adding a thumbs up or other emoji to a comment on an issue count as “participating” for the purposes of notification?

If not, is the a reasonable change.  I hate to add a +1 comment just to stay notificed of progress on an issue I’m interested in.

Hi @malcook,

Creating emoji reactions does not subscribe you to an issue. If you want to subscribe without leaving a coment, there’s a subscribe button in the middle of the right column that you can use.
