Instant email alerts and notifications
If I click on my name on the top of the screen and then click on user feed, at the bottom of that page, I'll get an RSS for updates. Great for notifications of messages I should read, as they're related to questions I've subscribed somehow.
Why can't we have an option to just receive those notifications through e-mail instantly? Not using feedburner or any other external source.
But it's still not answered! Hopefully it's for having the wrong approach.
I just need to get email notifications, at very least, from direct answers to my questions. No need to try and automate anything.
Ways to get instant notification:
- opt-in config to auto-notify when getting answer to your question
- opt-in config to auto-notify when getting comments on your answer / question
- individually choose to get warnings on either the selected answer or question from anyone else with an opt-in config to auto-notify on the ones you've answered / commented.
Simple as that. I don't mind receiving too much notifications. I only mind receiving NONE!
