1) Add a "Follow Me" link or image on each user's page that any other user can click on.
2) When that link is clicked by a logged-in member, they're asked to verify if they'd like to follow this user.
3) Add a section to every user's profile that displays all of the objects of the users they're following sorted by descending date. But since there's so much going on already on the user profile pages, this may be best done on a completely separate and new page that can be navigated to by clicking on a "People I'm Following" link or something similar on your profile.

Montana Matt wrote:I think it would be a nice feature to have something like "Followed by XXX people" on the user's page. That wouldn't give away too much.

Unfortunately, a new TR disappears from "What's New" in less than a day, and a mountain can disappear in a couple days during busy season.
It would also be nice if the "What's New" page listed the page author in addition to the name of the page.
People on this site have reputations, both good and bad -- let's make it easier for the people with good reputations.
