What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I have found that there are a handful of high-rep users [I'm looking at you Jon Skeet] whose answers to a broad variety of questions are enlightening and educational. Often I find myself browsing through their answers just as an opportunity to learn something.

I know that I would find it useful (and a time-saver) to be able to get an RSS feed of all of the question, answers and comments these folks are posting, as a way to keep up with interesting content, rather than having to search on this manually. It may also be interesting to see which answers these folks upvote.

What does the MSO community think of this? Am I out on a limb here or what.

You can already get most of this in the recent tab of the user's profile. There is an RSS button down at the bottom of that page with the feed's link.

This is not going to include voting of course, since voting is anonymous.

For instance this is mine:

It also doesn't include a feed of comments on other answers. –  LBushkin Jul 15 '09 at 18:32
    
If you don't hang up that battery and get off the internet I will beat you for sure. You tivo'd Springer, right? –  GEOCHET Jul 15 '09 at 18:33
    
@LBushkin: The feed includes all comments that the user makes AFAIK. –  GEOCHET Jul 15 '09 at 18:33
    
It would also be helpful if the RSS feed fro the user page included the text of the question. –  LBushkin Jul 15 '09 at 18:34
    
@LBushkin: I just checked mine. It includes, for example, my comment on this answer: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5689/… –  Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 15 '09 at 18:35
    
@LBushkin: Have you tried this feed out yet? It is amazingly simple, and you are asking for things that are either already implemented or defy the idea of RSS. –  GEOCHET Jul 15 '09 at 18:36
    
Yes, I looked into it, and it does track comments. I was mistaken. –  LBushkin Jul 15 '09 at 19:42
