Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Does StackOverflow currently notify all those who have answered a question when that question is edited?

As the question states - Will people who have answered my question automatically be notified of updates to the question? Or do I need to inform the user that I have made an update?

No, they will not be updated automatically, unless they have favorited the question (selected the star).

If you want to notify them you will need to comment to them specifically.

How do I comment to them specifically? – kirsten g Dec 26 '12 at 20:38
Um. Just like you did here. You comment on their answer. I got notified that you did. – Oded Dec 26 '12 at 20:38
I think you got notified because I commented on your answer. However if I want to notify someone who has made a comment I think I have to mention their @Name in my comment – kirsten g Dec 26 '12 at 20:59
