RSS feed for forums

I checked quickly but didn't find anything like this, sorry if this has already been discussed.

I like the idea of an RSS aggregator sending me a feed of new posts; the French forums have this set up, and Linux Questions has such a broadcast.

I was wondering if any thought had been given to a similar implementation for the Mint forums (or is already there and I've been missing it all this time?) The current forum tools are very useful but I, for one, love getting forum updates via Thunderbird to keep on top of them; I realize, though, there might be technical issues and/or bandwidth problems involved.

Well someone must make it happen and time is limited, this limits us in many ways
We all have to work with something else to support us - food on the table....
Clem can soon almost live on Mint (is that proper English?)

Copy that. And yeah, although out of context it could raise certain questions about Clem's dietary choices, that's English :D

I know you guys are busy with a lot of stuff but if this function will be implemented you can count on me as the first one who will be taking advantage of it! :)

The link works with Google.reader but Liferea with LM Xfce doesn't show anything.
BTW: Google.reader reveals some insights into restricted developer forums like http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 352#227352: exploder : Mint 8 -> LinuxMint-8-Fluxbox-DEV-047.iso

Now it's working fine. I am on Mint 8 x64. I fixed the flash problem and posted the solution, had to reboot to get flash to work and now this is downloading fine.

I loaded this url into evolution rss plug in and though it makes evolution grey out once in a while it works fine.

Thank you

P.S.

It is a great addition to the 30 (or more) News rss feeds coming in about a society gone haywire and filling me with rage by 08:30 :D
there is a certain calming effect about it.
