I think some time ago, I had to manually follow questions I answered...nowadays, I click on answer and am automatically following the question....or has it always been this way and I didn't notice before?
It is automatic. You can change it to unfollow. This box right here, just above the dark grey answer is a line with a check mark, follow this question. Uncheck it. You can also unfollow when you get answer alerts sent to you in the email too.
