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 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.
