All the elements of a Forum in an RSS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know we can subscribe by RSS to Threads in a Forum, or Posts in a Thread. Though what I really need and I'm far from being the only one, is the ability to use an RSS feed providing all the activity on a specific forum. You know I very active on some specific forums, and want to be informed of new messages or answers, even on old threads, in order to provide a high satisfaction level to the community.

    For instance it could be formatted like this:

    Question: What color is an Elephant ?
    I mean do pink elephants really exists ?

    New Discussion: What do you think about MSDN Forums ?
    bla bla

    Answer: What color is an Elephant
    Pink elephants don't exists.

    New message in : What do you think about MSDN Forums
    bla bla again

    This system would prevent me from checking multiple forums several times per day, and remember what was the latest activity time for each of them. I would pay for it ! Really !

    Thanks,
    Sebastien

    Sounds like you should be using an  NNTP bridge  and exploiting the capabilities of a newsreader.   E.g. you could create an Elephant rule in it and make it color such threads Pink.    ; )
