    I was wondering if anyone has or can make a dashboard widget for MacRumors forums that shows you your subscribed threads and/or also shows you which threads have new posts. It seems like it would be a whole lot easier for me (and everyone else) to track the threads they've been watching.

    PS: I know someone else already posted a ForumSpy widget but, that only shows you EVERY new post instead of just the one's you're watching. I'm not a programmer and have never made a widget before so I don't know how hard it is to make or if it's even possible to do.

    Any smart widget creators out there wanna take this on? A lot of us would be extremely grateful I bet.

    haven't seen the forum spy widget. care to give me a link? also, you idea you require arn programming a whole ajax "threads you are watching page" which could take a little while. from there, someone could make the feed and a widget that subscribes to that feed. at least im pretty sure it'd have to work that way.

    You know, Search is your friend. :)

    Linky.

    Watch out! The Forum-Spy Widget is a RAM hog!

    Does MacRumors have a RSS feed?

    Isn't that like just what Forum Spy was made for?

    It's much easier to hit F12 then open Safari and go to MR RSS feed.

    Eh. It takes up too much RAM. And I wish it would update only when you open dashboard.
