I've been playing with a lifestream app, and it would be interesting to be able to pull my metafilter posting/commenting history into that. The most streamlined way for that to happen would be via RSS. It doesn't seem like there's any way to do that currently.
Obviously this is a low priority, but if it's just a matter of flipping a switch, it could be interesting. [more inside]

PonyFilter: Can we have RSS feeds for users' answers/posts? It'd be nice if you like a person's brand of answers and want to keep abreast of them, but are the kind of person who lives and dies by RSS feeds. Plus, y'know, well, there's this

Is there a way to get an RSS feed of http://ask.metafilter.com/search_comments.mefi?user_ID=NNNNN ?

It would be cool to have RSS feeds on a per user basis. I'm thinking mainly posts but comments would be fine too. Something like http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/user/posts.rss
. It'd be a great way to keep up with people whose stuff you enjoy (like everyone's favorite
) w/o getting lost in the volume.

Missing pony: Author information in RSS feeds. According to this earlier metatalk thread
, the RSS feeds should contain the name of a post's author in the appropriate field, but there are no such tags showing up in the feed
. Was that pony stillborn? Can it be revived?

I'd like to see individual comments feeds for all MeFi posts. This would make threads much easier to track. Also, could we get feeds for MeFi tags too perhaps? And what about feeds for each user's posts and comments, like how 43 Things

Could we have the name of the poster in the RSS feed?
