    Just wanting to know how people typically read the InvestEd forums - will help me with thinking about how to improve the structure of the site.

    If there are differences between how you read this forum and other forums (eg forums with higher post volumes or broader topics), please explain in the comments.

    I'm a huge fan of RSS feeds and use it to view new posts.

    Ahh ... funnily enough, I had this nagging feeling there was an option I was missing ... RSS was actually one of the main reasons I wanted to post the poll, then I forgot to add the option ... doh!

    I've changed the options so that you voted RSS and added a couple more options. (Do you subscribe to the master RSS feed, or your own custom feeds with forums of your chosing ?)

    If you have any suggestions for improving the RSS feeds, let me know.

    I use FeedDemon for managing my RSS feeds. It's not free - but it is very very good.
