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

I was wondering, is there a way to track particular questions in Stack Overflow? For instance, if I see a question asked that I would like to see the answer to, is there a way that I can mark that question so that I can come back to it later?

There is a pretty useful StackApps app called StackStalker (Google Chrome Extension) written by Jason Edleman that does exactly this (Including notification badges). You can check it out here:

StackStalker: Be Notified When Your Question Is Updated (Chrome Extension)

This is the only answer which actually answers the question. Favoriting a question does not notify you of changes. – Madara Uchiha Apr 5 '12 at 17:09
StackStalker seems to have it’s own DB. Would be great if some app picks up the question I “starred” already... – Robert Siemer Feb 19 '15 at 17:58

Each question has an RSS feed that you can subscribe to if you need to see everything that happens.

Otherwise, favouriting the question is a pretty good way to go.

I don't know how to subscribe to RSS for a single question. See this to subscribe for ALL your favourite (starred) questions:… in short, something like this:… Thanks, George! – Sam Watkins Jul 13 '12 at 3:27
@SamWatkins There's an RSS link on the lower-right of each question page with the label "question feed". It's of the format http://$HOST/feeds/question/$QUESTION_ID . – Max Nanasy Jul 23 '12 at 4:36
As stackoverflow won't email you changes, you may use some free service to email RSS changes to you when there is a new content. – OndrejM Sep 2 '15 at 8:31

Put them in Favorites, click on the star under the votes of your question. Here is how you can watch them - In your profile page there is a Favorites tab, it lists all your favorite questions.

Guys, how can I edit my answer? I gave it in stackoverflow, now I can't edit it(My login is the same Yahoo ID). And what about the reputation from the two upvotes, it's not here, it's not in the stackoverflow... – Svetlozar Angelov Aug 12 '09 at 15:47
