How to subscribe to the "Announcements Forum" ?

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 ?

My RSS reader accepted it just fine. and when there's new content it will update it with such. yeah.
what are you using, what is not working?

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).

Exactly.

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

Forum RSS picks up new threads.
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.
