Hey,
Would it be possible to install a mod such as http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/rss_feed_2.0/ so we can subscribe to either unread posts, certain categories or the forum as a whole?

I believe RSS has been tried and discussed before, and it just put too much traffic on the server. Although, we recently upgraded. The admins might be more open to it now...

We will be performing around round of upgrades this weekend. Perhaps we can look into it, although I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, since we have had performance issues with it in the past.

Very exciting. :)
Writing an xml file to a flat file like once an hour or whatever would reduce the resources to that of a single page view.
I'd even be willing to write the script.

Except it needs to be done for every user to account for their own unread post lists.

Well, it can export only the active topics, and do not count read/unread status :) Let's user's RSS client handle this

This would be most pleasing.
