It happened several times - I've found a very interesting (for me) relatively old answer or question which would most likely lead to some new research. I ask about any possible recent references in a comment but there is no answer, probably because participants are not active here anymore. Here are most recent examples of a question and an answer which are quite "hot" for my current investigations and most likely somebody did something more but I cannot find out.
So I thought - would not it be useful to accompany questions/answers with more recent information about their future life outside MO? In particular I know a couple of cases when MO activity did certainly lead to new research, I did read it somewhere here and I was very glad about it, but now I don't even remember where did I see it, and, if I am not mistaken, this information was not reflected at the page of the question/answer itself. I find it quite appropriate to have it there.
In what form though - this I don't know. I think it does not belong neither in comments nor in answers or addenda to questions. Probably some additional area on the page where anybody could add updates about related "outside world" developments, maybe with possibility to up/downwote each contribution, I don't know.
