The site has RSS feeds, but they don't reflect changing threads. That is, for a particular forum when someone adds to a thread, the RSS feed for the entire forum does not show that thread as a new item (I'm using Google Reader). Not sure exactly how to fix it, but just know that it doesn't work as I would like it to. It's good for showing new threads as they are added, but not good if you want to know when each thread gets updated. In reality, there should probably be multiple feeds, as I think the feature to see when threads update is probably more beneficial to mods, and the way it works today is probably how most end users would like it to work.

I agree. I run a forum for members of my aff. program and I have it set up so the members can access individual thread RSS feeds so they can keep track of topics they want without the inundation of email notifications. Each board has an aggregate feed as well as the overall forum and thread specific feeds so the member can choose which they prefer. (The mod I use is for SMF, but I am sure it can be used on this board as well - with a little tweaking from the members and staff )
