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 have set up a workflow where I star or favorite a question that I want to "follow". I have found that this makes it easy for me to go back and see if there have been updates. (I don't always get notifications of things going on in the question/answers). Then when I'm done or the question is answered, I remove it from my favorites. Is there a better way?

What I want to do is actually use favorites for what it was intended: Good answers that I want to refer back to in the future. These don't always come up quickly on google or the internal SO search.

These are similar questions, but not exactly the same. Some are old and seem to be no longer applicable.

  1. Subscribing to questions and comments that don't belong to you
  2. Rename "favorite" questions to "subscribed" or "following"
  3. Please allow me to follow questions
  4. How do favorite questions work?

+1, I'd like a way to 'follow' a question and get notified in the top left when there's a comment, new answer, etc in the same way that if I post an answer and a comment gets added to it, I get notified. – Patashu Apr 12 '13 at 15:55
Questions have RSS feeds, but you only see answers, not comments. – JimmyPena Apr 12 '13 at 16:15
