Background:

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.

Question:

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)?

  • NB: Community Wiki still exists - it is just that questions cannot be made community wiki by end users anymore. (You have to flag the question for moderator attention). You can still answer a question by making it CW, and CW questions do not magically poof out of existence. – Jean Hominal Oct 26 '10 at 7:45

devinb started this list of feature changes to the sites (including dates and links to the requests) which are kept up to date by other users. Favorite it. :)

  • +1 That does help greatly! More power to devinb! Now if only i could get informed about any changes to this post when i visit SO instead of having to visit meta, that would just be the icing on the cake..Any ideas on that front? – Jagmag Oct 26 '10 at 8:21
  • @InSane: Subscribing to the rss feed seems the way to go then. Though I don't know how it behaves since there are no new answers, just updates to the one. (I should add that though devinb started it, he's not the only maintainer but a number of people, thank them too ;)) – Jeff Mercado Oct 26 '10 at 8:24
  • Exactly the thought i had in mind. Subscribed to it anyways. Now waiting and watching till the next update to see if that works. Oh..its a community answer...more power to them all!! :-) – Jagmag Oct 26 '10 at 8:30
