The title says it all.

I'm trying to think back to recall whether I have ever been notified when an answer to one of my questions was edited, but I can't recall.

  • $\begingroup$ @Manishearth It hasn't happened to me; I was merely wondering if it would. I actually feel that might be rather excessive if that were a feature of SE. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2014 at 3:54
  • $\begingroup$ Whoops - read the question completely wrong - ignore that answer. I've never seen such a notification. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisWhite Ok cool. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2014 at 4:00
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I see I misread the question. I thought you were talking about edits on your own answer. Ignore my previous comment. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 6, 2014 at 11:42

No, no notifications are generated if an answer to one of your questions is edited.

However, if you go to your profile and sort your questions by Activity, recent edits to answers will cause questions to rank more highly in that list (as will new answers, edits to the question itself, etc.)
