And thus be notified in my SE global inbox (not email) of any edits, comments, new answers, etc?
You can favorite a question for that, when you do that you will get this relevant benefit:
Changes to the question will now notify users who have favorited the question. Notifications include comments to the question, edits, new answers, and edits to answers. This is a way to get updates on questions that you yourself didn't ask.
This benefit includes all the notifications you have required in your meta question.
Where do I get notifications for Favorites? I have favorited many questions, but not once received a notification. Perhaps, I should start a new question for my issue...– iglvzxDec 20, 2011 at 1:02
I'm not entirely sure whether it's in the inbox or at the top of the page, it has been a long time ago one of my favorites has changed. I don't have many favorites so I can't really tell... Dec 20, 2011 at 1:56
Strange. It does not seem to be working for me. I have asked about my issue here: meta.superuser.com/questions/3910/…– iglvzxDec 20, 2011 at 6:12
