What is meta? ×
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 have read many questions about the topic. Apparently if I favorite a question, I should get notifications about it, but it's currently not the case. Apparently, there is a checkbox in the prefs tab of my profile about it. What I see is "Allow email notifications when I subscribe to questions or tags", which I have checked.

Unfortunately, I don't seem to understand how it works: I favorite questions, they get comments, edits, answers, and I am not notified in any way.

I saw info saying that this kind of feature is broken, but it was about a year ago. Certainly I've missed some stuff?

What am I doing wrong? How can I get updates about those questions I'm not involved in (without subscribing to individual RSS feeds)?

It might be worth adding this link meta.stackexchange.com/a/52094/179635 on "feature is broken" (or somewhere near that sentence) –  ajax333221 Aug 29 '12 at 15:03
