There are about 20 people on bitcoin talk who I think are very smart and who always seem to post interesting stuff, but there seems to be no easy way to stay aware of their posts. Sadly most of the posts on this forum are not that interesting or educational, and wading through all of them to find the rare gems makes me not use this forum very much.

Can we add some functionality where I can create a list of people who I want to follow, and then there's a page called "latest posts by people on your follow list", which lists all of their most recent posting activity? Maybe use some of the forum's 6000 BTC to hire someone to add this? Currently I'd have to manually view the latest posts of every person separately.

Someone launched a free service a few weeks ago which did about what you want. You'd select a usernames and/or threads and it'd update via RSS. Can't remember name. Google search site:bitcointalk.org with some keywords like "RSS" and "tracking" should turn it up.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

Here is the tool: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=308954.0

Unfortunately it only allows one RSS feed per user, so I can't have a feed with 20 of my favorite users.

I would expect a lot of what you get would be confusing, you would get one-half of the conversation. Read this message alone, what the heck am I talking about?

Sometimes if I'm tired of reading FAQ-level noob questions, I go back and read this guy's posts from a year or two ago - sometimes it's stuff I didn't know I knew!

This isn't worth a new thread, but I came up with a genius forum mod:

The idea is that you'd go directly to the thread and read the full context when you saw a new post that looked somewhat interesting from one of the people you follow.
