I posted an answer a week ago and got several upvotes for it, and it was marked accepted. Today I decided to add something to make it better, so I edited it. I received 2 more upvotes during the next hour.

How did people notice that I edited my answer?

They didn't.

When edited the question re-appear in the main page again.

Somebody read it, and upvote it.

You can tell if the answer was edited because a legend "Edited..." appears in it.
