Not sure whether this seems a valid question.Suppose someone has posted a question and i am also very interested in knowing the answer of that question. WHy cant we have a feature which says "notify me when someone answers" and if wanted we can be notified through email..

  • This is a Q&A Site, so an Answer is expected. In addition you can Favorite the Question.

The "favourite questions" thing had, for a brief period, notifications on changes. It was shortly removed, and has shown no signs of coming back in the four years since.

See Jeff Atwood's post.

  • So currently the only notifier is the app

  • @Virusboy you can get digest emails of inbox notifications, and emails of new questions via tag filters, but that's about it, i think.

  • I believe there are still RSS feeds for questions though.

  • @muru yes, in the bottom right corner of the screen, under the hot questions. For example, for this post: meta.askubuntu.com/feeds/question/13427

  • @Seth excellent. It should possible to use an RSS app or similar service to get notifications then.
