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

If I edit my answer on SO, after this answer was accepted by the owner of the question, will the owner receive a notification of any sort?

I don't think question owners get notification of edits to answers regardless of whether the answer has been accepted or not. – ChrisF Mar 22 '10 at 13:26

You can leave them a comment (either a @reply or on the question), or perhaps they're watching their profile page for recent activity on their questions (the recent button), or watching that question's RSS feed (generally unlikely, but useful for me).

(Now this has been edited after being accepted, as proof to the OP.)

@ama yeah, don't recall seeing it recently. Maybe there are some constraints (no notification for retagging, minor edits, etc) – Manishearth Jun 21 '12 at 16:05
