This happened to me just today. I posted a comment about a question being subjective (and hence might be better off being a wiki) and had someone tell me (rightly) that there is no such thing as community wiki anymore (EDIT: Atleast in regards to the checkbox option that used to be there for the person posting the question)!
That, of course, made me feel a bit silly!!
Now, be that as it were, being a member of SO, i would like to be somehow kept updated of any such changes that take place. However, from a practical perspective, i do not find the time to really monitor or track such discussion on meta to be able to be in the know automatically.
Is there any mechanism (short of following meta religiously) as to how a person can be kept abreast of such operational / conventional changes to SO and how it operates (be it a result of meta discussions or otherwise)?
