Becoming Adept!

It would be a great feature (for me at least) to be able to pull an RSS feed of posts in my guild's forum. That way I can put them on my homepage or pull them down in my reader so I know immediately if there are new posts.
Looking at this from a DBA's perspective, it shouldn't take a lot of CPU or disk access, but could potentially use a lot more disk space and bandwidth for the re-checking for updates by readers and parsers all the time.
Anyway, I think I'd be great.

Wouldn't be hard, but because RSS doesn't include authentication, it'd only include posts from public forums..

From an external reader or from a RSS content type?  GP won't link to one of its own feeds... If you want a "Most Recent Posts" listing, there's a content type for that now, too.

RSS doesn't include authentication, but the RSS link on the guild web page is transported over HTTP, which does support authentication.   I subscribe to several RSS feeds that require authentication.

Please will you fix GP so that authenticated users can get feeds of the private groups.
