    Is there a way to subscribe to Guides so you can be notified when every new guide is published?
    Kinda like an RSS feed?

    There's no way I know of to subscribe to a forum, only a thread.

    Dang, that should be a "must have" so our readers can automatically get a notification for the next guide.
    At least that is what I would want if I was a reader.

    Don't bloggers have a way to do this? I'm thinking start blogging then blog a few lines when ever you put up a new guide

    I think Xenforo is an RSS feed, but how do we subscribe with a feeder?

    Duh, I'm so dumb!
    There is an RSS feed button to the right of each Forum.
    I don't use an RSS reader, but if I did, I'm sure this would subscribe for me

    I use to use Thunderbird and have it do my RSS feed reading for me. It was easy to add a new feed, just get the code from the site, click the button on TB add code and done.

    Exactly, I found that there is even an RSS feed for the homepage too.
    I just need a decent RSS feed Gaget that will show the thumbnails.
    right now its just links.

    Basically I was wondering if our readers could subscribe just to the Guides forum alone. But now I found that they can subscribe to any forum as an RSS feed.
    Pretty cool. If I was a reader and was trying to see what games are updated for PlayOnLinux, it would be nice to have a feed of some sort. This does it perfectly.
