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 want to suggest a feature that I would really love to see implemented.

Whenever you answer someone's question and get your answer accepted I would like to see new answers pop up in the notification area. Why would I want that - as it usually happens, the accepted answer (if there is one) gets viewed much more than other answers below but other solutions may be more useful/suitable for different situations, so if I could monitor this, I would at least edit my answer to refer readers to the answer below so they could notice it too.

In any case, this could be a checkbox in settings that some of us may use. I don't think it would be hard to implement and won't make a big difference in performance!

I've seen this question too, but what I want to say in my suggestion covers a bit more long-run solution. For example if the question is one or two years old and the technology changes, the accepted answer may not be the best solution "up-to-date" anymore. The question linked covers more of a "recent question answer" where author mentions refreshing the page after giving an answer. – Sergey Telshevsky Jan 31 '13 at 15:10
