In a site like StackOverflow, we can subscribe to specific tags. So if there is a question on tag "WordPress Plugins" a group of people interested in that specific topic will be notified, perhaps expediting responses. Can we do this with the Q&A Plugin combined with the Subscribe by Email plugin?
Similarly, when users login to their dashboard, I'd like to show them a feed of their subscribed categories - they might not be getting emails... I could just put a link in the dashboard to a page that shows the feed. But if the Dashboard Feed plugin can already support Q&A categories then that would be great too.
Note: I know those plugins allow for subscription to WordPress Categories - aka Blog Categories. Since this site isn't a blog, it's a Q&A site, I'm not using any Blog Categories (yet anyway). So as a hack, where Q&A sets (changes/removes) its categories, I could inject a setting to the site/WP/blog categories.
... or, LOL, did I miss an option somewhere that already allows Q&A to use the site categories? ...
Other suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
