I just discovered the newsfeed today. Im pretty sure that if I didn't hit on it since joining, that many average forum members would never discover it. I find this inconsistent, because watching a thread does cause alerts, while watching a member does not. I'd like to request the option to receive Alerts for 'posts by followed members'. Because it makes no sense to alert for every post a followed member makes, an alert per followed member would suffice and such alert could notify that: Member A has made 3 new posts. Clicking it would lead to the new posts of that member.
