2) I tried to track a question today and it simply didn't work. Well, nothing happened. In fact, I am not sure what is supposed to happen, but I imagine you are meant to be notified of any other answers to the question via your mailbox, is that correct? I'd tried to track a question before, and it didn't work then either. Is this simply my problem or more generalised?
The old one has not worked for some time. The new tracking feature was released in the beta design yesterday. This is what is supposed to happen:
(1) The "track" button should now be highlighted yellow to show that you are tracking. (Click it again to turn off tracking.)
(2) When the question gets closed, you will be sent a summary of the question and selected answer, as well as other answers and peer comments.
You will not be sent additional answers as they are proposed. I was not sure whether or not to add this. What do you think?
