The new follow feature for questions is great.
I changed my workflow for questions without enough information to:
- Leave a comment about what information I am missing.
- Vote to close for "requires more focus".
- If it is a bad question, downvote.
- Follow the question
Following the question allows me to give fast feedback when the asker edits the question, retract my downvote, and if the question has been closed in the meantime, vote to reopen it. Wish it would only notify me for things the asker do, but that's a small nitpick.
But sometimes op doesn't listen, and edit a question that can not reproduced with just an other "but it's not working for me" Example (deleted, SO)
Now I still receive notifications on that question. It was deleted 6 hours ago, and edited by the asker 5 hours ago, for which I received a notification.
And I don't see a point following that question any longer - the asker doesn't listen to what others and I have said, and instead opted to make minuscule edits to
game the system get attention.
But I don't see an Unfollow button on the deleted question. So: How do I unfollow that question?
Now there is a tab on my profile, showing me the posts I follow, including deleted ones. Which is nice I guess.
Deleted Posts have even a "unfollow" button that displays the following error message when I click it:
This post has been deleted; deleted posts can't be voted on
