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

I know this is probably a silly question, but I couldn't find it Googling neither by searching this site.

I'm wondering if, to receive notifications from new answers, it is enough to upvote a question, or so I have to mark is as favorite?

You have to star it in order to be notified. Upvoting a question simply means you think it was a well-written, well-researched and/or interesting question. Favoriting it, on the other hand, means you are interested in the question and you wish to keep track of its activity.

Thanks! I thought that but I upvoted some questions and never got notifications from them, but I couldn't find them back to see if I should've been notified :) – Steven Roose Jun 23 '12 at 9:20
