What is the best way to be notified when a specific question (not my own) is answered? I've tried setting these questions as "favorites", but there doesn't seem to be a good way to then follow the favorites. The "Favorites" link when I hover over my name just indicates which questions I've added as favorites, not when those questions are updated/answers.

Is there another / better way?

    There is a way to figure out how to check which answer is update on your favorited questions.

  • They haven't fixed favorite notification yet, but it will still somewhat indicate that your question has been answered. Apr 22 '11 at 15:48
  • @You, I looked at that view. It just seems to give me a list of questions I have favorited recently.

  • @Lance, so there is something in the works for favorite notification?

    @Marcie, "recently" is not that you have favorited recently but "added" is. recently is ordered by recent activities on the posts you favorited.

    @Marcie, they say there is, but haven't seen hide nor hair of anything yet. Apr 22 '11 at 16:12
  • @You, yes, but if I added it recently and there is no answer yet, it still shows up at the top of Recent, which doesn't help me.
