Notify more frequently than once a day?

In below to place to write this, I have:

 Notify (my e-mail) daily of any new answers

The problem is: daily is a lot of time, why not instantly? If two or more answer happens for one question, I only will be notify one time, until I enter in the Stack Overflow, like same forums.

I don't like this system, I have to enter all time to see if my question was quickly answered (this is common). For old post, ok, one day isn't a lot time, but for a new question...

What do you thing?


Wow.. It was fast :P Well, I saw it was not a good post.. Anyway, now I know it... :)

Edit 2

Sorry for the noise (I search it before post, but didn't find that question)... In less than 10 minutes, I gain -5 and block my question! This is my personal record!!!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Active participation is the goal. If you have to experience the horror of actively monitoring your own question, perfect! The system is working! – Anthony Pegram Jun 3 '11 at 13:55

That might be a lot of emails. It is not worth it to spam users who want to be notified. If you want updates more often than a day login to SO and check.

Like I say above, you can CHOSE it. An it is not for ALL question. If some thing is is causing a lot of new e-mail, turn it OFF. – Rodrigo Jun 3 '11 at 14:03
