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

When I find an interesting question, I have two options:

  1. Star it. But, to check updates, I need to visit the questions time-to-time. Its not push type.
  2. Subscribe its feed. But, its also not push type. And, its not universal. If I switch to mobile devices for example, it becomes difficult. Tracking feeds is also bad experience (Google Reader kill advocates it).

Please, add a feature to subscribe a question and get notification of answers and comments on it in global inbox. To clear the clutter, you can automatically erase a subscribed question from list after 7 days.

This will serve your goal just fine if implemented. – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '12 at 13:40
@ShaDowWizArd No. It'll crowd global inbox. We favorite questions just like bookmarking. So, notifications from favorites would be bad. And, to stop notification, we'd need to un-favorite a question which is again bad. – Evil Angel Mar 27 '12 at 13:44
So what exactly are you suggesting? Push it where? – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '12 at 13:45
@ShaDowWizArd Optional subscriptions can't make global inbox crowded. I like to keep subscription & favorite separate so that I could un-subscribe a question without any problem. – Evil Angel Mar 27 '12 at 13:50
What you ask is too "localized" in my opinion to get any real attention from the team. If you have Chrome, check this out. (RSS Live Links browser extension) – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '12 at 14:05

Have you noticed the question feed link on the bottom of each question?

question feed link

It's a little hard to notice, but it's on every question, and you can use any Atom-enabled service to be kept up to date on questions you want to see new activity on.

You can also get an RSS feed on user activity from their profile. – Lix Mar 27 '12 at 12:40
@CasperOne Yes, I know about that. Its no different than checking it from favorites. Its not push type. – Evil Angel Mar 27 '12 at 12:40
@SachinShekhar Your request was not for something push-based, it was "So, it'd be better if I could subscribe a question and get notification of answers and comments on it. Please, add this feature with unsubscribe option." - Atom, while requiring polling, fulfills this request for you. – casperOne Mar 27 '12 at 12:41
@CasperOne While It was understood thing as I praised global inbox over favorite, but I have added them in question. Thanks.. – Evil Angel Mar 27 '12 at 12:49
