Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Apparently there was a new message/functionality introduced today. I gather it displays answers and comments on one's favored questions and displays this the same way as "You've new answers". Is this feature documented somewhere?

I was presented the same notification today but to me it looked like a favored question was deleted and hence removed from my favlist. – Filburt Jun 1 '10 at 8:35

I tagged this as faq-proposed because I bet it will soon be a common question. Or maybe the answer to this should be merged to some notification based faq? – Earlz Jun 1 '10 at 8:59

On an unrelated sidenote, for some reason I get the feeling that it was a bad idea to bookmark more than 500 questions. – mafu Jun 1 '10 at 13:52
