Short version: Is there a way to get notifications about any comments or edits to a random question question?
Long Version I know you can get notifications about answers on a random question by marking it as favorite.
I've also read that there's a bit of an involved process in getting notifications about certain comments, like mentions (pings) or being the sole commenter to a question.
Some times I take particular interest in a certain question and would like try to answer it in the future, but often happens questions are incomplete or lack the proper information for a full answer in the first round
The natural course of action is of course asking the user for more info, screenshots, often post a blend file etc. So is there a sure way to get notified about any further edits or subsequent comments the user may make to his question, should the user add more information to it, so one may eventually revisit it or provide a proper answer?
They often get buried in the new questions stream and finding them in the Active pane is not always easy. Asking the user to mention us in a comment may work but not very reliable especially for newcomers.
Just for the sake of completeness here is an instance where it actually happened. The question remained unanswered for quite some time, the user responded and commented on it but no one actually noticed until he luckily pinged one user and got some due attention.
