I would love to see this as well, it would make keeping up with my guild's posts much much easier as we tend to be a chatty bunch.

Guild admins now have the ability to enable RSS feeds for their guilds that will provide more than just public-level data. Whenever a member of a guild site clicks on any of the RSS links, they are presented with a list of available feeds. If guild admins have checked "Allow Authenticated RSS" in the Control Panel > General Settings > General, the links will contain a key specific to that user, so that when they paste the RSS link into their reader, they will be able to see information that they would be able to see when actually logged into the site.

The reason RSS links now display a page with available feeds instead of directly opening the feed is to prevent accidental copying and pasting of an entire page with the sensitive links in them. Also, when this functionality is enabled, users are warned to never share their specific key with anyone else. Admins who are concerned about this should simply not enable "Allow Authenticated RSS," and all RSS feeds will only display public-level data.

In addition to this new functionality, two new types of feeds have been added: Shouts and Upcoming Events.

So far, so good.

We have a report of someone who gets a completely blank page when she looks at the RSS feed. She's got an "_" in her username and we wondered if that might be causing the issue.

Please let me know what you think!

Aaron will look into this soon.  
What does everyone else think of the RSS feeds any troubles?   Best thing since sliced bread?

Everyone else is just tickled! It makes our forums much easier to stay on top of because man, we're chatty! But we're like that in game chat and on vent too.

Thank you so much for implementing this and for looking into the problem with the mentioned person's feeds.

We tracked it down. It has to do with the key not being URL encoded so a sign in the link causes the feed to be blank, but swapping that out for %2b allows the feed to render.

Hope this helps!
