A question on how to keep up with the activity in this forum.
I've been posting responses to this site for years. During that time, I have been visiting the site almost daily to see new activity. I'm curious about how others that post frequently keep up with the activity on the site. Do you visit often? Have you found a way to get notified of updates? What is your secret?
The lack of notifications makes keeping up-to-date with things here a lot more difficult than other places that I'm a member, but I've got a few tools to help.
For new threads, I use an RSS service. Personally, I use Blogtrottr to convert RSS feeds to digest emails. Depending on what you like, there are other services out there to subscribe to and get notifications from feeds. I only subscribe to one feed, and that's the feed for new threads from https://www.scrum.org/forum/scrum-forum/rss.xml. I also subscribe to the Scrum.org blog this way.
Whenever I end up on Scrum.org (either from a new forum thread or a new blog post), I usually pop by the forums, too, and check on anything that has a new reply. The hard part is that I don't always remember if I participated in the discussion or not. Following up with new threads or finding old posts that I've made is the hardest part, and I really don't have a good solution for that piece of the problem and narrowing down anything new to anything new that I've participated in.
I had thought about using a RSS service but since I couldn't find anything on the site about an feed existing, I didn't pursue it any further. I should have known better. <where is that face palm emoji?>
Thanks, I have set it up and will see how it goes.
