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

This question about notifications of revisions is marked status-completed:

Notifications for edits by others of my own questions and answers?

But it's not really completed. The envelope turns red but you don't get the drop-down notification box that says "You've had 3 edits to your questions" or something similar. We get this for answers and comments, but not revisions.

This info is available in the revisions tab, so it's not totally hidden, but the ability to hunt down this information is not the same as notifications.

Fixed - see Shog9's answer for details!

Also, these specific "header notifications" are added on a longer delay than the "new message envelope" alerts. Perhaps this update time could be a user preference?

The envelope turning red is a notification. It's much less intrusive than the drop-down badge/response notification.

The envelope is a notification that something happened, no indication of what. I'm asking for the intrusive drop-down. SO pops it down for answers/comments, I would argue revisions are just as important. – Sam Mar 10 '10 at 14:15
