If I edit my answer on SO, after this answer was accepted by the owner of the question, will the owner receive a notification of any sort?



You can leave them a comment (either a @reply or on the question), or perhaps they're watching their profile page for recent activity on their questions (the recent button), or watching that question's RSS feed (generally unlikely, but useful for me).

(Now this has been edited after being accepted, as proof to the OP.)


The new notification system includes edits:

  • Hmmm I only get this randomly.... – Naftali aka Neal Jun 21 '12 at 15:59
  • @ama yeah, don't recall seeing it recently. Maybe there are some constraints (no notification for retagging, minor edits, etc) – Manishearth Jun 21 '12 at 16:05
