Discussion Forum Feeds
I recently sent out a post telling everyone to set up their profile to Watch our Discussion Forum. Typically you would log in, Click on Discussions, and then see an Easy Edit Button with options beside it including More Tools. You would select More Tools then Watch Page (if you are on the page you want to watch - such as the Discussion Forum page.)
Unfortunately, I was told that someone was having difficulties. When I went to the Discussions Page, I noticed that the Easy Edit - More Tools options were not on this page. http://ants.wetpaint.com/thread/ They were however on other pages such as the Home Page.
I did notice that if you opened a Specific Thread (like Choosing a Software), that there was a Watch this Page link at the top. This means you can tell it to watch a specific thread, but as far as I can determine the option to watch the Discussion Forum in general (so you will be notified any time someone starts a new thread) is missing.
I have e-mailed Wetpaint about this and am awaiting an answer. I want this to work so Library Screencasters can talk with their colleagues and learn from one another. If it is not corrected, the only thing I can think of would be to use an RSS Aggregator that does not need Feeds provided by the site.
I will let everyone know what I hear when Wetpaint responds.
