We've been tweaking the Ranch some more, and wanted to make you aware of some small enhancements that otherwise might not get noticed.
1) Easy posting of FAQ pages to del.icio.us
All FAQ pages now have the little del.icio.us icon () next to the title. It's clickable, and will open a dialog that lets this page be posted to your del.icio.us account. It's analogous to how the icon works on the Watch pages. You need to be logged into that site for this to work.
2) Automatic Watches for topics you start yourself
Recognizing that you may like to be notified about responses to your own topics, there's now a checkbox labelled "Add a Watch automatically for each topic I start" on the Watch page. If it's checked, each you new topic you start will automatically be watched, without you needing to remember to click the "Watch Topic" button.
3) RSS feed for Today's Active Topics
A few folks had asked for a feed that lists all topics that are active on this current date. The feed at http://faq.javaranch.com/RSS/Forum0.rss comes close - it lists all topics that have been active in the last 24 hours. It's larger than the other feeds, and changes frequently, so don't set your feedreader to retrieve it too often (say, more than once per hour).
