Let me start by saying that I am a big fan of the follow feature.
I use it a lot but I ran into a problem that I'm not always interested in edits + comments + answers + anything else at the same time. For example, I would often follow a post and only want to know about any edits to it. And that may end up like this:
Other times I may only want to know about answers to a question. And some times I am interested in comments.
Currently, there is no way to choose which notifications you receive from a followed post - any activity pings you. This can be too much in some cases.
It would be immensely helpful if there was a possibility to choose which notifications you get:
- answers - applicable when following questions
- changes in status - closure/reopen for questions, acceptance for answers, etc.
