The following thread:


has an official answer (from Jeff Atwood♦) which says:

There is a checkbox to opt out of favorite notifications now on the preferences tab of the user page.

I couldn't find the cited checkbox option (did I miss something?). Since it is a 3.5 year old thread this feature can have changed (here are two other old threads marked as duplicates from the previous one).

Regarding situations where answer does not work anymore, what is more appropriate action to take if one wishes to update/solve/suggest the subject:

Some options I can think of are:

  • ask another question and explain why it is being asked again,
  • put a bounty in the original thread and ask for updated answers,
  • flag for moderator attention, request a rettag and edit the accepted-answer emphasizing it is outdated,
  • leave a comment to the OP asking him/her to remove the accepted-answer status,
  • combinations of above, other?.

This is not the main question, but I would also appreciate any guidance about how to do to stop receiving favorites notifications.

  • The thread (used as example) is deleted now and the bounty was returned. The former duplicates are still marked as duplicates. Don't know what to do. – Andre Silva Jan 18 '14 at 18:39
