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

It used to be that if there was activity on a question you marked as a Favorite, the little envelope icon would light up to let you know. The little envelope is gone now, so is there another way to be informed about activity on Favorites?

They are now listed in your profile dropdown.

More awesome - favourites

There are no inbox notifications though - you just have to check the drop down.

What freehand awesomeness? You can't even draw a complete circle! – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jun 17 '11 at 17:12
@BoltClock: That part is transparent so I didn't ruin the view of the tooltip ;-D – codingbadger Jun 17 '11 at 17:21
The main problem with this is: if it's a comment on one of your favorite questions, it's very hard to find out which question it is. – Hendrik Vogt Jul 28 '11 at 8:48
