It would be a great feature if one could "subscribe" to the questions of any particular user. Some users ask good questions from your area of expertise, so you want to be notified when it happens.

    What, like the rss feed on the user page? (user feed link a the bottom right of the profile page) – Oded Mar 19 '14 at 12:27
  • @Oded you are always fast, I posted an answer about that and then found your comment posted 40 seconds before me :) – Nean Der Thal Mar 19 '14 at 12:29
  • @Oded Is there an easy way to filter out just questions from an RSS feed? – Bill the Lizard Mar 19 '14 at 12:31
  • @BilltheLizard - I don't believe so. It would probably be easier through the API. – Oded Mar 19 '14 at 12:31
  • As Oded said, this is possible with API and a userscript. There is StackEye on Stackapps, which is very close to what you want, but includes both answers and questions. – How About a Nice Big Cup of Mar 19 '14 at 12:40
  • .. and here's a link to StackEye; unfortunately it's Chrome-only at present. – How About a Nice Big Cup of Mar 19 '14 at 14:11

How about subscribing using RSS:

https://stackoverflow.com/feeds/user/[user Id]

Change the user id and then use any RSS feed app or the browser.

  • It is more of a workaround. Why not to make a system's feature. – Graduate Mar 19 '14 at 12:33
  • Too noisy. Reading every comment that the user leaves somewhere quickly gets old (especially as comments are given without context). The feed does not filter for questions. – How About a Nice Big Cup of Mar 19 '14 at 12:35
  • @ true, I guess it would be nice if they allow some parameters to filter the feed. Something like ?type=q or ?type=a – Nean Der Thal Mar 19 '14 at 12:36
  • @Graduate: what would that accomplish? How will that help bring better questions or answers to the site, that using the RSS feed cannot do now? – Martijn Pieters Mar 19 '14 at 12:51
