Make the user's start page more like a Facebook start page
I think it would be really nice if the start page for a logged-in user looked something like the start page for a Facebook user. You would recent changes be something like:
* Alice has answered your question X
* Bob has answered your question Y
* Charlie has commented on your answer to question Z
* You have received 7 votes for your answer to question Z in the last 24 hours
I know a lot of this information is visible in the "Recent" tab of the user profile page, but I think there is room for improvement. Even if you don't want to make this the start page (I know you want the questions to be a priority), maybe you could at least condense this information into a sidebar that is visible at login?
merging this with http://uservoice.stackoverflow.com/pages/general/suggestions/38310-new-since-last-visit-notifications which is in progress
I also would like "Denise has also commented on question Q"

Also, it should show recent activity on questions that you've marked as favorites.
