I think this could possibly go against the philosophy of SE, but are you able to adjust setting to follow particular users: when they post and answer questions etc? Is this something that could be set up by the moderators?

Why? / why not?

    $\begingroup$ an easy way to work this out is to make a tag for that user (with their permission), and assign it as your favorite tag. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ RSS apps: what OS do you use. I use liferea on Linux. RSSowl is also good. I have also used a terminal based RSS reader called newsbeuter (quite decent) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Not really an issue, but if someone was following one user, his/her voting may be biased, or at least tend to rank abnormally high percentages toward that user. $\endgroup$

Found out you can rss subscribe users (link at bottom right on profile page). Looking for a good rss app. The ones I've come across are too spamy

    $\begingroup$ Just remember, always vote on the question/answer, never on the user. I just voted to delete a link-only answer from the highest-rep user (yes, it's really that high) on Stack Overflow the other day, because it was a bad answer, and went against site rules. Granted, he wrote it in 2009, when the rules were different, but it wasn't following today's rules. If you think a certain person usually makes worthwhile contributions to the site, and want to see all of them, that's fine, but don't vote just because it's that person. $\endgroup$
