Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Some proposals in area51 are interesting enough that I want to know if they succeed and when they open, but not interesting enough to actually commit to them. It would be nice if I could follow them even in the commit phase - from what I hear, follows made prior to the commit phase remain in the commit phase, so it shouldn't be too much of a change...

does this really merit the added of complexity of having a Follow AND a Commit button? If you spend that much time on Area51 could you just remember the topic name or bookmark it? :) – Gordon Gustafson Jun 19 '10 at 2:53

Shhh... Don't tell anyone, okay? This is just between you and me. Along the top of the proposal, see the 'definition' tab? Click it. But, really, shhhhh— don't... tell... anyone...

I was still getting emails from Food and Cooking even though I didn't commit to it, so yup it's working as intended ;-) – Ivo Flipse Jun 19 '10 at 6:20
