Yesterday I posted a post here. I saw that @Buffy edited his answer but I did not receive the notification about the edited answer.

Is there any way to get the notification in the inbox when an answer in your post is edited?

You can use the Follow feature below the answer.

See The Follow Questions and Answers feature is now live across the Network for more information.

    Hi @Bryan, I am wondering if there is any option that I can follow every question that I ask rather than hitting the " follow " button at the bottom left corner of every question Aug 16, 2021 at 22:05

    @NoviceMindset No, there is no feature like that in the SE software. meta.stackexchange.com/q/319353/401068 has some more info about what triggers a notification and what doesn't; the one you ask about is included in the list of "things you might think triggers a notification but doesn't". It's likely someone else has requested what you have on the main meta (meta.stackexchange.com), but like Massimo I'm on mobile right now and it's a bit of a pain to search. Otherwise you could make your own feature request, but I think you'll probably just be pointed back to the Follow feature.

    @NoviceMindset And in case you decide to post your own feature request, beware that the main meta is a kind of a minefield for new users where one might get heavily downvoted in case of a duplicate request. Aug 16, 2021 at 22:15

    Yeah, that's an important caution. A lot of people post there without doing their homework and it makes the locals a bit restless and short to frustration.

  • I thought the OP on a question got a flag for every answer, answer edit, and comment on their question as well as comments to answers. Not so?

  • @Buffy No, the OP is notified neither of answer edits nor of comments to answers. Aug 17, 2021 at 21:34
