Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

If a post (A) is closed as a duplicate of another one (B), and post A has answers, people who have favorited post B should be notified because those answers may also be useful.

I find this unclear. Is the suggestion "when user A favorites question N, and later question M is closed as a dup of N, notify user A of the existence of M (but only if M has answers)"? –  dmckee Sep 3 '10 at 12:38
    
@dmckee: exactly that. –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 3 '10 at 12:46

I think this is:

  • Fairly complicated to implement
  • Fairly complicated to explain and understand
  • Although somewhat useful, not very

Overall I just don't think it's worth it.

Not a bad idea, but I suspect there are many things that should come first.
