Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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 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: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/25194/… in short, something like this: stack2rss.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/users/1/… 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 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

Svetlozar is right, same answer here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/71243/… – Nestor Dec 3 '10 at 4:12

And subscribe to this (substitute your user number). stack2rss.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/users/1/… – Sam Watkins Jul 13 '12 at 3:28
Could not subscribe to that by searching it in Feedly. – Noumenon Feb 13 at 4:33
