For subscribed threads you already get e-mail notification. It really wouldn't serve the purpose for which RSS was built if you made it serve only subscribed threads to you.

I'm not sure whether it's feasible, but I think it should be though.

rss seems as though it would be much less cumbersome than email.

i like the news lq.org news feed, and just thought it would be nice to have subscribed threads too, though i guess you could just keep cp in a background window and check from time to time.

cheers

I actually suggested this to jeremy last weekend and as far as I know he is looking into it. I'd certainly give the idea a thumbs up.

i thought someone mentioned somethign very similar recently, and it would have been far too resource intensive... depends how often the feed would be used, but a dynamic user specific feed on a website would mean it would be called each time someone viewed that website. i would think it would need to be cached for 30 minutes or controlled some other way, other wise there are potentially nasty implications.

thought it might be potentially resource intensive, but the cached idea might work. trying to work the logistics out in my mind :S... better go to bed.

It's an interesting idea. All the syndication feeds used to be live, but about 2 years ago I had to switch them to cached, as they just get requested far too often. As this idea would basically add 150,000 feeds, we couldn't pre cache them all (well, we could - but it wouldn't be worth it). I have a couple ideas in my heads as to how it could potentially be solved, but I am still working them out. First, I'd like to gauge the demand for this feature though. Who's interested?

Personally I'm not interested in this idea. If I am sufficiently interested in a thread, I would subscribe to it and receive the RSS feeds for generally keeping up with the activity at LQ.

But what about RSS Feeds for individual forums choosable? I could choose any forums which I want and receive only RSS updates for them. Something like subscribing to forums, but only with RSS feeds?

well i would subscribe to both feeds [forums/subscribed threads] if available, but it may be worth brainstorming over any more of the potentially "most useful" rss integrations, then put up a poll.

if there is a clear interest in one or two, then work on feasability and/or logistics perhaps.

Sorry....just not into the whole RSS thing. Seems like just another medium for people to mux around with.

Next there will be ads in the RSS feeds...and then pop-ups in the feed readers.

thinking about the implementation, i know that /. has banned the firefox livemarks as a reader (or at least mine!) so i'm asuming the actaul client is detectable, so could be restricted to certain user-only clients (ie. not going to be hit on a webpage)

It must be just you they don't like. Mine seem fine

I haven't tested it, but considering it uses the http protocol the client is probably sending a useragent variable so it should be possible to detect.

I'm glad I searched first as I was going to ask the same question

Has anything come of this ?

We'll look into some fancier feeds being available with a future release of the forums. Thanks for the feedback.
