Originally posted by Sgt.Psycho:As stated by previous posters, you only get 'pushed' updates if you also 'Follow' the submission. If you just voted Yes and moved on, you hear nothing.I suspect, as Wilco64256 said, that this is kind of broken leading to exactly the issue you've brought up. imho, it should be an opt-out system where you automatically follow games you've voted. I follow almost every game I vote for, and also follow a lot I don't vote for, so I can see if they improve enough to vote for later.That said with auto-following, no-one needs more spam, so I don't know what the solution is.This is further complicated by the fact that all submissions you've voted for that pre-date the Follow feature are not followed (I just checked some early votes) so if you happened to submit your game before then and have it voted, you have no way of reaching those voters (in Greenlight) asides from a post like this. Given your submission date, this is almost certainly true and no-one who voted for OCR is following it, I would guess.
