Is there a feature to follow a specific member on the forum?
There are a few people I would like to follow and get alerts when they post, in the same way I get email alerts for watched forums or threads.
Which sounds kind of creepy. But I promise is innocent. lol
If this option is available, can someone point me in the right direction, because I can't find it.
And it it's not, would it be hard to implement?

I tried to stalk Tim and clicked on something......RSS? I got a long list of gobblety-gook computer-speak with some titles of threads thrown in. I am not real computer smart and cannot decipher all that. I clicked on everything on that list and it opened nothing. So if I truly wanted to stalk Tim and read what he posted, I couldn't get there from that particular page. But then maybe I am missing something......
(sorry @Tim Cooke I'll try to be a better stalker)
That's just a bunch of code.... Is that what you were meaning to link to?
That's exactly what I got. My name is Dana and I am computer challenged.
Yes, that code is the RSS feed data that your RSS reader knows what to do with.
So what you would do, if you want to follow Tim and read all his posts, is to copy the URL (right click on it and select "Copy link address" or "Copy URL") and then add it to your RSS reader (which can be different depending on your reader). Then all Tim's posts will show up in the reader. RSS is a really cool technology that doesn't get enough use IMHO.
