I've come across a few interesting questions over the last few months on Stack Overflow. They're not necessarily questions I need an answer to, but the questions are nonetheless very interesting, and now I want to know what the answers are.
I don't want to add this question to my favourites because I have my really handy posts in there.
Ideally I would like to have another kind of shortlist to which I can add these posts. I would get notifications just as if it were my own post, without having these as favourites.
What do you think of that? It would be available only for questions, and you would receive notifications just like the author, for new answers and comments on the question (not comments on the answers).
You could browse the posts you're following, as well as stop following them.
The thing is sometimes I come across a semi interesting question and upvote and maybe even comment, but I never hear about it again, because sometimes it's just not interesting enough to remember.
Like I said in the comments, I don't feel like the favourite list is really for this. I want in-your-face red dot notifications for new answers on brand new interesting questions I find. The favourites is for that post with an answer that you know you'll need again.
