When a user votes to close a question (for whatever reason), it would helpful to receive a notification (in the inbox) when the question is edited (either the text, tags, if it closes then is re-opened) so that the user can then modify his or her vote if the question is properly adjusted.

    Too bad you can't modify your close vote. Commented Dec 27, 2010 at 21:59
  • @Jon should I close this or is this different enough as a solution or by 'activity' am I basically saying the same thing?

  • It's different, but as I said, related. Also, Kop was referring to your post, not to my comment.

You can get notifications of updates to questions that you voted to close by following them using the follow post feature.

    It's not a answer, it's a workaround. I have VtC over 3000 question until today, I dont want to follow them all :P

    To be clear: it is only possible to get this edit notification if you follow the question. We are not going to put in an automated notification for this. Commented Dec 10, 2020 at 14:17
  • Hi, such comment answer me, but it fall more a status-decline imo, but you have a workaround, which is nice to have too.

    @yagmoth555 Actually I think this is a better solution than getting spammed with notifications for every question I closevoted. This way I can only follow the ones I think might be salvageable instead of rolling the dice on whether someone will edit the hundreds of unsalvageable ones to tidy up a tag or change "it's" to "its". And I can go through my followed questions and unfollow them after some period of time if my interest in those questions wanes.
