Update from Yaakov Ellis's comment: These emails are only sent to users who have their email settings for Tips & Reminders set to On. Users who have this set to Off should not receive the email, even if they are in the experiment group. This kind of solves my concern. I still think the one-hour waiting time is too "nagging", but this is still ...

Following a successful experiment earlier this year testing this feature, close notifications are now live network-wide, for question authors and followers. Please see the official announcement for more details. Author a question If it is closed, check inbox Followers as well

The symptoms reported point to an issue on one of the socket servers. And the last time that the servers were built out was on May 11 (corresponding to Makyen's report of this date as the beginning of this). So while I have not been able to detect through our monitoring which server is the culprit, I am hoping that pushing out a new build (which I just ...

This was probably caused by the election ending early and needing to be restarted. Shouldn't be a recurring bug as it was caused by a human mistake on ending the wrong election.

When the nomination phase starts, there are no candidates. Sending a notification to 150-300 reputation users would be kinda noisy; they can't do anything at that moment. If they're really interested in the site, they'll also see an election is going on in the sidebar widget. When the election phase starts, you have (usually) 8 days to get to know the ...

Currently there is no way to unsubscribe from email updates from a single question of yourself. If you think that would be a usefull feature to have for the entire network you can consider posting a feature-request for that. Before doing so have a look at How do I write a good feature request? There are however a few things you could do to minimize or stop ...

(I'm a diamond moderator on the site where that happened which how I can see these what happened) There's actually two different comments. The comment was posted, edited, and then deleted, and reposted with additions and then edited (thus it looks like one comment that was edited). I assume you clicked through on the first notification, thus it persists ...

"... Additionally, the system default interval to receive an email notification for unread inbox messages is 3 hours. Since 99% of participants in the experiment received this custom email, there is no way for us to tell if the 3 hour interval email (which sends the standard inbox notifications, without any special formatting relating to post closure) ...

I too would like to see this implemented. A small edit can still mess up a post, and I would happily trade the "noise" sent to me in exchange for knowing about all the edits on my post. This comment asks about enabling all the notifications manually in the user settings, and I agree. It would be nice to have the option of seeing some or all of ...

These two policies you saw were retracted because they were released without going through the policy review release process. Moving forward, all of our new moderator policies will be going through the below process to make sure that policies are reviewed and moderators have the opportunity to give feedback on them before they're active. Moderators will get ...

SE has a whole load of ‘hidden’ RSS feeds including ones for the user page. If you go to say https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/738249/noor?tab=answers and add it to your favourite rss feed reader it will turn into an RSS feed of the form https://meta.stackexchange.com/feeds/user/738249. While this includes questions and comments- you may be able to use ...

A similar post on Meta Stack Overflow made the same request, and the functionality was added in October. See the linked post for details.

Thanks for the report! SVG icons recently moved from /img/svg-icons to /img/stacks-icons and we overlooked updating the CORS policy along with it. The issue should be resolved now, though you might have to "empty cache and hard reload" in the Chrome parlance.

I absolutely support this. If a user makes a few edits and a good chunk of them get rolled back, they should be notified why so they don’t continue filling the queues with bad edits. A quote from you: My response would be: does it really make sense to follow every post you edit? No, it does not. I much prefer the idea of getting an update like with ...

What kind of events do not trigger an inbox notification, even though one might expect so? Some notable events do not trigger an inbox notification: One of your posts or comments is deleted. One of your questions becomes, or gets removed from, Hot Network Questions. One of your questions is tweeted onto the site's Twitter account. One of your posts is ...

No notifications are sent to: [...] The user who cast the last vote for closing the question (including when a question author self-dupes their own question) The wording of this is a bit confusing to me. I understand not sending a notification to OP when they vote to close their own question. However, the main, non-parenthetical part of the sentence sounds ...

The only time that askers get notified of an answer is when it's created - so if you ask a question which then gets an answer so you get notified. If that answer is edited, you don't get an alert about it - and that's always been the case as far as I'm aware. With the addition of following, an asker (or anyone) can now follow answers to see if they've been ...

Flags of any kind are meant to be fire and forget for the most part. You can only find what happened to them if you directly look at your flag history. Generally comment flags when marked as helpful will result only in the deletion of the offending comment. For the most part if a comment has been removed then we should all just move on. If you think that ...

I'll summarize the answers the question received in the comments: 1) close voters are already pinged 2) the current function of this is by design, so why change it? Close voters are already "pinged", often by means of revenge voting. – rene Jan 4 at 7:50 If the closevoters are going to say what they see the problem as, they'll already do so. ...

"Visible room" is the one you see the messages of (and whose ID is in the address bar). This might be on a different tab (though your browser settings may control whether you hear anything from inactive tabs or not). "All my rooms" are all other rooms you're 'in', i.e. the list between the avatars and the starred messages: Of course, all ...

The timeline shows that the answer was deleted shortly after being posted by the post author. Deleted posts don't show in your inbox because it would be confusing. The post was edited and undeleted today which is why you see the answer now.

The answer was deleted less than an hour after it was posted, and we also remove the notification for it so users don't end up on a page wondering why they were notified of nothing. It was only undeleted less than an hour ago.
