[Theforum] New feature suggestions

(not sure if this belongs on thesite or theforum. However, since there 
seems to be a serious database/cookie/authentication discussion on thesite, 
I'll post it here ;)

A couple of new potential features for evolt.org:

1) Shouldn't we have a "notify me when a new article is posted" feature for 
www.evolt.org? Yes, I know it's posted on thelist, but still... It would 
drive more traffic to the site.

2) I'd like some way of posting requests for articles on a specific topic. 
None of us are mindreaders, so we won't have any clue when a significant 
number of people want an article explaining something like, say, XHTML 
(example only). A mechanism to post requests for articles would be nice. I 
see a "Suggestions" category, but that seems to be for site features.

Also, this opens up a new avenue for collaboration on articles. If someone 
says, "I'd like an article on [xyz]", then member A and member B, who are 
both knowledgeable about [xyz], could co-author the article. A would simply 
ask B, "hey, want to work on this together?". Two heads are better than 
one, etc.
