    This site since its installation of vBulletin 3 (and limited support in vBulletin 2) has supported RSS feeds. Now they are explicitly defined on pages that support them--namely, the home page and when viewing a forum.

    The newest batch of browsers that feature RSS detection such as Firefox and Safari should now detect pages that support RSS and allow you to subscribe. A screenshot of Firefox is attached; note the RSS icon in the corner.

    Cool filburt1. Just a quick question. I know what RSS does and all that, just what does it stand for?

    RSS is the name given to several related forms of XML that forms a framework for sharing news headlines and also news stories. It can also be used for just about any set of information that you wish to share. A good intoduction to RSS is available at There are a few definitions of what RSS stands for - one is Really Simple Syndication, and two others are Rich Site Summary and RDF Site Summary. Also, if you are interested in how to create a basic RSS feed, then there is an article right here on the CWM website.
