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

I'm thinking something on the site, similar to the way you can star questions. You should be able to star tags or groups of tags and when something new happens in that set (an edit to a question or answer, a new answer to an existing question, or a new question), you get notified on the site.

Yes, you can use an RSS feed, but if I were to do that, my RSS feeds would probably triple. I would like to be notified on-site of events such as these.

Wait! You have trouble organizing your RSS feeds, and SO should solve that for you? – Ladybug Killer Jul 25 '10 at 12:25
I don't want this in my RSS feed. I want things I need to know about ASAP in my RSS feed - very few things on Stack Overflow fall into that category. I might not care about updates in a watched tag or tags until I visit Stack Overflow, and I should be able to get notified when I visit the site. – Thomas Owens Jul 25 '10 at 19:34
Conversely, some of us who use RSS for non-urgent things might like an email notification for new posts on a tag we consider urgent. I’d at least like an email option. Is there one? Don’t see it. – Paul Cantrell Aug 7 '15 at 16:52
