"My Forums" suggestion RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This is just a suggestion for adding an aggregation feature.  Think of another button at the top called "My Forums".  The system would provide a way for the user to pick the set of forums that the user regularly reads.  Then, when the user goes to "My Forums", the user would see the messages in those forums as if it were "one big forum".  All of the filtering options typically available would still be available when using the aggregation.

    This would be helpful to me because I am currently using the forums in conjunction with an external RSS reader (to do the aggregation) but would prefer a more integrated approach.

  • I agree with this. If it's easy enough, you might permit a small number n > 1 of "My Forums". I've got a set I look at for Visual Studio Extensibility, a set for Web Services, etc. "5" would be an ok value for "n".
