Send a Stack Exchange notification when a question gets closed

Notice that I never get an alert in my inbox that a question has been closed, why is this?

UPDATE >> RESPONSE-TO-CLOSE: It's not the same question as those linked to above which are feature-request. My question is a request for support; a mod, Yannis Rizos, changed it to a feature-request when he migrated the question. My question is why I don't get a notice, meaning there must be a reason why SE has never added the feature, and I would like to know what the reason is.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professionals, academics, and students working within the systems development life cycle.

  • Good question, I don't have an answer. – Josh K Feb 22 '12 at 14:58
  • This is a good question. Not only should closing give a notice, but any state change (edit, conversion to wiki, closing, answer, comment) to a post that you "own" (a wiki post you are the highest contributor to, a post that you created) should probably generate a notification, I think. Perhaps there's a discussion on Meta.StackOverflow about this - I haven't checked. – Thomas Owens Feb 22 '12 at 15:33
  • @Yannis Rizos: I assumed there was an existing answer, which is why I didn't post it as a feature-request. If you want to change it to a feature-request and move it to Meta Stack Overflow, that's fine with me. – blunders Feb 22 '12 at 16:06

    @jadarnel27 Related, but I don't think duplicate. That one is asking for a banner at the top of the screen while this is about an inbox-delivered message. For a banner, you need to be on the proper site. Inbox notifications are on any site. – Thomas Owens Feb 22 '12 at 16:54

    Actually, the other question is not asking for a banner. As I see it, both the questions are asking for a notification; which notification will be implemented depends from SE staff's decisions. – kiamlaluno Feb 22 '12 at 17:18
