I would like to ask about two types of problems. One seems to be a bug, the other one - not.

2. I never received notifications that the answer on my question was edited, so I guess that such notification in not provided on MSE. Since sometimes people add details/extend their answers even without the request of OP, won't it be useful to notify OP also that the answer on his question was edited?

• @Gortaur, two questions: Does #1 persist? Is (was) your inbox completely empty? (The latter happened to me some time ago, too, but the problem went away all by itself.) – Hendrik Vogt Jul 14 '11 at 8:08
• @Hendrik Vogt: no, I received notifications on your comments for this question - but it is quite often with comments and answers for my questions on MSE. – Ilya Jul 14 '11 at 8:20
• @Gortaur: Then this looks indeed like a bug. When you look at this version of your inbox, do you see that answer of joriki? – Hendrik Vogt Jul 14 '11 at 8:31
• @Hendrik Vogt: unfortunately, not. Seems to me to coincide with the pop-up version. – Ilya Jul 14 '11 at 8:36
• @Gortaur: Too bad. So you'll have to wait till someone with a little more power stops by :-( – Hendrik Vogt Jul 14 '11 at 8:39
• @Hendrik Vogt: Thanks for you help. In fact it's bad since I do not know now what the empty inbox means: either there are no new messages, or I should check it by myself. – Ilya Jul 14 '11 at 8:56
• @Gortaur: I'm still not sure what you mean by "empty inbox". Are all the messages inside, but you just didn't see a red disc with the number of new messages? – Hendrik Vogt Jul 14 '11 at 9:02
• @Hendrik: no, some messages are delivered (and I can see the red disc when there are new), but some answers on my questions do not make notifications - they do not appear in my inbox (hence, there is no red disk also) – Ilya Jul 14 '11 at 9:40
• @Gortaur: OK, then checking by yourself is rather difficult indeed - you'd have to check on all your questions :-(. – Hendrik Vogt Jul 14 '11 at 9:52
• @Gortaur: you can also look here. – t.b. Jul 15 '11 at 0:36
• @Theo Buehler: Thanks, it seems to me that all notifications are here. That's strange they are not in my inbox though. – Ilya Jul 15 '11 at 8:04
