Forum watching feature
It would be very useful to have a forum watch feature that notifies you via email when someone starts a discussion or a thread. Any plans to add this feature ?
We have RSS feeds per board, have a look at the forum front page [developer.qt.nokia.com].
Like this one for the Beta Testing board that I use to keep up with all the posts (don’t want to miss anything you know): http://developer.qt.nokia.com/feeds/forum/5 [developer.qt.nokia.com]
We also have a global feed at http://developer.qt.nokia.com/feeds/all_forums [developer.qt.nokia.com] but it’s almost to much already, as Andre hints at.
Once you reply to a thread you get those e-mail alerts though.
Nice! RSS feeds are useful. Perhaps that feature should be advertised a little more? Nowhere on the forum page do I see an RSS link or see an RSS icon appear in my browser.
What’s more, it might be nice to have a page where you can “compose” your own RSS link based on the topics you are interested in. You’d be generating an RSS link containing a query based on the forum(s), and perhaps based on tags or other properties.
If you go to the Beta Testing forum [developer.qt.nokia.com] there should be an RSS icon in the address bar. But I agree, we haven’t made the most of it yet. :)
