SF answer that was edited

However, I didn't get a notification of the edit in my inbox.

Global inbox

I spoke to some other users, who told me they are receiving notifications of edited posts. So I suspect it's something in particular with my account, my settings, or something utterly stupid that I did while completely smashed one weekend and forgot about.

Whatever it is, I'd love to start getting these notifications again.

After some testing, I determined that I am getting notices for suggested edits, but not for edits made by 3K+ users.

I believe this is by design. I have never received notifications of edits to my content, only ever suggested edits.

You can see edit list under Responses > Revisions in your profile:

  • Some of your revision descriptions are hilarious. Mine are all full of "typo", "mixed up X and Y", "typo", and "grammar".
