Notify us when one of our posts is edited - this is really a duplicate.

Optional notification on an edit to an answer - This is about something else, but still useful.

Not often, but still sometimes, someone edits my posts. I know I can see a list of those on the "revisions" tab of the "responses" view in my profile, but then I would have to look there regularly. Could I get a notification of those edits in my global inbox?

(I just checked, there is no such mention in my global inbox (It would be on page 9/10 now, for the last edit of one of my posts).)

Much more often actually I'm editing posts (questions/answers) of other people, and I think it would be fair if they would get a notification about these, even if I don't post an explicit comment.

The message could be something like:

edit on Why do java arrays have no indexOf method?
Added: return NOT_FOUND;

I.e. first the question title, then the edit comment. The link could either go to the revision list or the question/answer itself.

The inbox could also include suggested edits on my posts by people who don't yet have enough reputation, so I could approve/reject them myself, without needed intervention of other edit-approvers. (They would still be visible on the global queue, of course.)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
There is another question named [You have one new edit. See your responses][5], but this seems to be from before the global inbox, and about a top-of-page notification bar. Just mentioning this so this question does not get closed as a duplicate. –  Paŭlo Ebermann Aug 17 '11 at 15:40

@Hendrik: Thanks. (I just cut-n-pasted this from the question (and not reread.) –  Paŭlo Ebermann Aug 17 '11 at 15:52
