SO has a high traffic and within 5 minutes the question in the main page changes. So suppose a question is posted and I liked the question. So is there a way I can get notification when an answer is posted to the question? The only possible way now present is to mark the question as "my favourite" and I have to browse from my profile every now and then to see if an answer is posted to the question or not. This seems to me a rather tedious work because somebody can have a large number of favourite questions in his profile. To make SO more friendly I think we should have such a way that when an answer is posted to my favourite question, I should get a notification. After all, it is my favourite question and surely I would like to check out all the possible answers.
