    As for frequency of notifications, I would suggest we should group them, so for example if an article is updated 8 times in an hour I should receive one notification informing me there were 8 updates not 8 individual ones.

      Yes 100% agree.

    Notifications that might be useful
    – an article you started/edited has been published
    – an alert for if an article for a topic of interest (politics, the environment etc) was started/published – might lead to people with knowledge or interest in the area being involved from the beginning of the articles development, hopefully resulting in more active, developer content.

      I like the article started in topic of interest which would allow people to see articles that might have moved off the homepage before they get a chance to see it (which can be set in your profile)

      Yes I love both of these.

      It would make it much better for those who are ‘following’ a tag/topic. No one really wants to get an email every single time something happens in a topic they are interested in (like Brexit, say) but it would be absolutely fine to have a website nofication up there that I can look at if I want.
