I think this one might be fairly straight-forward. The topic Watching questions for answers (possible feature request) touches on it, but doesn't completely describe what I am thinking of.
I think it would be helpful to get a notification if anything changes in a thread that I've provided an answer for.
This could include (but not be limited to nor all-inclusive):
- Another answer being accepted
- Another answer being added (may be TMI - perhaps something like an "answer counter" could be shown on the profile instead)
- The question being updated
- Comments on the question, or on other answers (although this point may result in TMI)
Perhaps this could be added to the user prefs, or perhaps this would muddy them too much.
Comments certainly welcome, and I will update with any clarifications as comments come in.
