I'd like some way to get notices of comments people make to my (questions, answers, comments), as well as changes to my reputation. Any chance that this could be added?

I'm sure I could script something up to scrape the webpage, but that's a lot less friendly than having it built in :)

+1 -- it would definitely improve conversation on the site... –  Srdjan Jovcic Jan 23 '10 at 0:02

Well, you can now mark this as complete. I have written a small app that does exactly this.

Stack2RSS

Stack2RSS takes an API request and converts it into an RSS feed that you can then subscribe to. Because the API is so flexible, stack2rss is very flexible.

Answering your question, here is the feed for comments people post to you on Meta StackOverflow:

http://stack2rss.stackexchange.com/meta.stackoverflow/users/127120/mentioned

And for recent reputation changes:

Nice work, but the timeline is not recent reputation it is "recent stuff done". It seems pretty similar to the feed at stackoverflow.com/feeds/user/127120 - EDIT: this is still half the original poster's question answered. I just wanted to be pedantic :-) –  richq Sep 19 '10 at 1:08
    
@richq: Thanks for mentioning this... I certainly want this tool to be the best it can be... I'm sure there is a feed I can build that includes rep. changes. I'll look into it. –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Sep 19 '10 at 1:13
    
This doesn't show my rep changes. How does that do what I'm looking for? –  Bill Weiss Sep 25 '10 at 19:36
    
@Bill: My mistake. I have fixed the link. –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Sep 26 '10 at 16:15
    
Your API key is exposed in this, but I assume you would have hid it if you could. –  Jon Seigel Sep 26 '10 at 16:17
    
@Jon: Ya, there's nothing I can do about it... and it's not a problem. –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Sep 26 '10 at 16:24
    
Alright, that works. Good enough :) –  Bill Weiss Sep 29 '10 at 18:44

And, it's gone. Both examples give me a 404 now. –  Bill Weiss Nov 2 '12 at 13:51
