Send a message when your question is closed

Shouldn't there be a 'your question got closed' notification? If there is, it's not working(i fuzzily recall such a notification, but that may have been for migration).

I asked a question on programmers.SE: https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/140027/good-practice-and-terminology-of-braces

It got closed (duplicate). Now, I live on physics.SE, so I never got any notification that the question was closed.

Is this a bug, or an intentional feature?

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.

  • I've never seen a question closed without at least one comment, which appear in your global inbox. That being said, no - there's no special notification for closure. Having a 'Closed' message delivered to the inbox may not be a bad idea, especially if trusted users vote to delete it quickly. – Tim Post Mar 16 '12 at 13:46
  • @TimPost you will now--check out the linked post. The only reason I found out was that I was bored and decided to check out other questions on programmers.SE – Manishearth Mar 16 '12 at 13:47
  • Umm, btw, this was closed (exact duplicate of another feature request) – Tim Post Mar 16 '12 at 13:48
  • @TimPost yeah, either inbox or make a dropdown like the new badges/migration notification – Manishearth Mar 16 '12 at 13:48
  • Yeah, that one went into the night with crickets chirping. – Tim Post Mar 16 '12 at 13:49
  • I think inbox would be best, since you'd get notified even if you were on another site. – Tim Post Mar 16 '12 at 13:49
  • @TimPost hmm.. But that question gives some points against it.. Which IMO are pretty flat... It could be opt-in or something.. – Manishearth Mar 16 '12 at 14:01
  • @TimPost alright, wrote my answer to that question meta.stackexchange.com/a/125882/178438 The reasons JeffAtwood gave IMO are unjustified... – Manishearth Mar 16 '12 at 14:10
