Update: I am currently using Yahoo Pipes to get the latest threads from all the forums here on Xenforo. The feed just has post name and post links. An excerpt would have been very nice.
- Global RSS feed for all the new posts: This one comes handy for moderation and... I use the latest post RSS feed of my forum to feed to my forums's official Twitter account for people who subscribe to it.

- RSS feed for individual threads: This one comes handy for users who do not want to join the forum to monitor a specific thread. They can subscribe to the thread they are interested in using an RSS Feed.
- RSS feed for individual user: This can come handy if I want to just follow posts and threads started by an individual user. I can see a couple of uses for this as well. Following the updates through RSS of developers on this forum for example.
People tend to find wonderful uses for such data which is made available through a very accessible format. RSS is a wonderful and a very powerful technology. With services like Yahoo Pipes, it can be used for some really interesting implementations...

I am sort of getting a lot of negative mmm vibes for the suggestions and thoughts I place here. So here is a little disclaimer. These suggestions are based on my personal usage requirements. And these are just requests for developers to consider. If you find them pointless for your own use, feel free to say so but do not criticize my need for these features.
