I suppose this isn't so much of a bug as an annoyance. Yesterday afternoon I checked my email and had a "1 question has 1 answer on ServerFault" email. I got excited (too excited probably), in hopes of having gotten a good answer. When I opened the email, though, the answer was one I had posted to my own question. I understand that answering your own question is likely a rare occurrence, but notification shouldn't be sent in that case. After all, the asker knows s/he answered the question, no?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
I know that this doesn't raise a notification on your own recent activity page. I have never had a chance to actually see if that is the case using the email notifications. If so that would be interesting.
Did you answer under a different account? Maybe you could provide a link to the question in question, perchance??
here's the only account I could find for you:
maybe this question?
This also happened to me on StackOverflow when I answered my own question here:
The email basically contains my own answer to this question, presumably because I've not yet marked it as accepted - I guess I should have turned off alerts for that question, but I wanted to leave it open for a while to see if anyone had any better ideas.
I don't have enough rep to edit the question to mark this as a bug ;)
