I notice that not all edits of my posts trigger an inbox notification. I know that when the edit only contains a tag manipulation, then it doesn't trigger an inbox notification. But it seems there is a more complex condition (small edits?) for this. In particular, I can't find anything in my global inbox about this edit. Maybe the reason here is that the question was closed already?

Could somebody provide a full list of which edits do not trigger an inbox notification?

  • @Glorfindel according to the answer of suggested duplicate the edit that contains a title modification (my case, see the link) should be considered "substantive", but there is no notification. Should I consider to change my [support] question into [bug] then? Jan 22, 2019 at 12:17
  • "The threshold varies from site to site." - that might be the cause but I'm not sure. I've reopened the question; please edit it to focus on this specific issue.

  • @Glorfindel The exact criteria are documented here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/278029/…. Please close as dupe. Jan 22, 2019 at 12:32
  • I already closed it but wasn't satisfied with the explanation there. And it's not really clear if titles are excluded from the 10 character criterion.

  • @Glorfindel Did you get notified for my edit to one of your post titles? Jan 22, 2019 at 12:45
  • Nope, I didn't. So it might be that the 10 character difference is right, but then this information needs to be added in the answer of the duplicate target.

  • @SonictheIntrovertedHedgehog looks like the duplicates list should be edited to refer to the question with your recent edit in the answer. Jan 22, 2019 at 16:12
  • @älёxölüt The duplicate target is now fixed. Jan 27, 2019 at 3:04
