Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Is there a way to subscribe to the subscription feed for an individual answer so that you are notified if someone edits it?

Well, if it your question or answer you will be notified in the Recent Activity page (Envelope) under Edits to your posts.

Otherwise, I don't believe there is a way to receive updates about edits to a post.

No, there is not. But this would be a great use for Wave integration...

Why would you want to do this?

Sounds like someone needs to be reminded of the golden rule:

Other people can edit my stuff?!

Like Wikipedia, this site is collaboratively edited. If you are not comfortable with the idea of your posts being edited by other trusted users, this may not be the site for you.

That's the golden rule? You mean it's not at all related to golden showers? Now I just feel violated. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Aug 3 '09 at 14:57
@Pesto: I am sorry you feel violated. I tried to warn you about what happens at Fogcreek during the interview process... – GEOCHET Aug 3 '09 at 14:58

They should show the edits in the Responses Envelope page.

Edit: I found that they do have a Quantity and link in the Responses Envelope page for Edits to your own posts. Now we just need the subscription capability for other posts.
