I posted a question on the Area 51 discussion zone. And apparently someone posted an answer on that question, but I didn't get any notification of that. I just saw it by coincidence.
Is this a bug? Or just not supported?

The envelope no longer lights up when someone answers your question. This functionality was removed a while back so as not to duplicate inbox notifications.
Additionally, the envelope notifications for Area 51 and the Area 51 Discussion Zone are completely separate.
You should, however, receive inbox notifications on all sites when someone answers your question in the Discussion Zone.
