Lately, I've noticed that when Edits are made, they cause the thread to rise to the top of my feed just like other updates like Comments and Answers would. Is it my imagination, or is this new behavior? I don't remember that happening before.
If it's new, I think I'd like to vote for bringing the old behavior back. Much of the time, the edits, I find, are not newsworthy. Conversely, also, I make a lot of trivial edits and would hate to think I'm cluttering peoples' feeds when I do.

Edits to questions have always caused the question to move back to the top of the list. What's new is that edits to answers and comments now have the same effect.
We're planning to make this behavior optional--by default edits won't cause the question to move back tot he top of the list, but you'll be able to check a box that says "this is a significant enough change that this should pop back to the top, and people following the question should be notified of the edit."
As for that "people following the question", stay tuned :-)

Randy, do my suggestions seem reasonable and achievable?
