    I have tried to "subscribe" to the Announcement-Forum via RSS, but somehow this does not work.

    I have not used RSS before and not sure how to do this.

    Is RSS the only way to subscribe to a specific XF-Forum-category ?

    Which also leads me to the suggestion of "subscribing" to a specific Forum-category without RSS. Any way to build this feature into XF ?

    Look on the right hand side of the post there is link stating 'watch this thread' - that gives you options about what type of subscription you want to have

    Go to the frontpage, there's a big ass RSS icon next to each forum.

    I just clicked "subscribe" on the RSS-page. But I did not receive any update on the second post Kier posted into the Announcement-Forum (regarding release date and pricing).

    Forum RSS picks up new threads.

    Exactly.

    So subscribe to the forum for new threads
    Subscribe to the thread where they announce the 24h has started, by watching it.

    aha, so that was the issue.
    Thanks for explaining.

    Can we have a feature in XF to have users "subscribe" to a Forum, besides "subscribing" to a specific Thread, like e.g. subscribing to the "Announcements Forum" in order to receive updates per e-mail ?

    I assume many users have no clue about RSS and how this works.
