Subscribe to Author? Answered

I had an idea... You know how YouTube allows you to subscribe to a "channel" (an account)? Perhaps we should have that for our authors, or Ibl'ers or whatever we call ourselves. The Ibles Robot may be a bit busy, but his girlfriend/secretary might be willing to PM me whenever whoever I've subscribed to posts something new. Kiteman had a good point: Make Groups subscribe-to-able Just a thought.

You can subscribe now. I had just figured that out a few minutes ago

An interesting thought, but if you're waiting for a particular style or theme of Instructable, then maybe you want to subscribe to a group instead?

For instance, if you're a fan of UV LEDs, there's no point subscribing to me because I'd be unlikely to do something similar again.

Actually, many of the regular 'iblers don't have a specific theme to their projects, so what you're really proposing is some sort of fan-club system. Not sure I approve of that, though I'm not sure why I don't approve. Gut instinct.

Yah, but it's not as simple, or cool, as getting the Ible Bot to notify you.

Eh, maybe, but I like RSS. Very convenient.

I agree with kiteman...but as Labot pointed out, you can subscribe via RSS for now. (Groups have RSS feeds to on the top left next to the name of the group)

Yupp, I just subscribed to Tetranitrate's instructables by clicking the rss link on his persona, next to the heading Instructables.

You can subscribe to me here.;]
