What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

The way I see it, the favourite button should be like a mechanism for you to follow a question without actually answer or contributing to it.

So I think that whenever you hit Favourite on a question, if there are new answers, comments, etc., it should notify you in the Inbox.

You already do get notified of activity on questions that you've favorited. There's a tab for it in your profile that lights up with a number indicating the number of active posts. It's cleverly labeled "favorites", located right under the "Ask Question" button:

    "Favorites" tab in profile

So, I don't really think we need more notifications cluttering up our inboxes...

oh ok. Yeah I guess it doesn't seem apparent which of the questions have changed. Also, you can't see them if you're logged into another SE site. I also just noticed the "notify <email> daily of any new answers". I could use that, although I think that would be quite annoying getting emailed all the time. – RoboShop May 17 '11 at 12:35
