How to get notifications for “drake”-tagged Stackoverflow questions

(Set up a Stackoverflow account if you don’t already have one.)

  1. Go to StackOverflow.
  2. Click on your profile picture (upper right).
  3. Select “Edit profile and settings”.
  4. Under “EMAIL SETTINGS”, select “Question subscriptions”.
    • (This will take you to StackExchange.)
  5. Look for “Filtered questions” at the top; select that.
    • If you don’t see it, look for “Log in” and make sure you are logged in to StackExchange as well as StackOverflow.
    • After logging in, select “Filtered questions”.
  6. Click on “New filter”, which brings up a form.
  7. On the form:
    • Pick “Just questions tagged with the __ tag.” and type “drake”.
    • Keep the default “All sites”; don’t select “Add rule”.
    • Choose a name for your filter, like “Drake questions”.
    • Request notification to your email, and pick a frequency. Consider the shortest delay so users can get quick answers – you can always make it longer later if it is bothering you.
  8. Click “Save changes”.
  9. You should receive an email confirmation with a subject like “Confirm your filter subscription - StackExchange”
