I know that there are a bunch of ways the reddit data can be consumed (for example http://www.reddit.com/r/owasp/.json ), but I find that at the moment I miss a number of threads and replies that I care about, due to the lack of an email alert (even if once a day)
For example, the GitHub issues is working really well for TeamMentor (https://github.com/TeamMentor/Master/issues) because:
- I get an email on new issues or comments
- If I reply to the email, the message is posted to the correct issue and
- Users that add issues comments, receive the email updates on the issues submitted (if they 'watch' the thread)
- I can manage my emails faster than I can manage my reddit subscriptions
If only I could achieve the same with Redit, Reddit's value and usability (to me) would increase dramatically.
Btw, the reddit 'message' center is already a good help (although it only seems to show the comments on threads I start or comments I made), so maybe there is a way to expand its coverage and enable auto-emailing.
