Add a series to Recent Activity?

Is there a way to add an entire series to recent activity?

For example, I'd like to follow the Star Trek: TNG rewatch, but don't always see them when they pop up on Fanfare. Is there existing method to make this work, or would it be relatively easy to make it possible?

Do you use the 'My Fanfare' view/sidebar? That will display only posts for series that you've clicked the '+ My Fanfare' link on, so it's easier to see what's new at a glance.

I feel like having series automatically get added to RA is probably a non-starter, mods have always said that RA takes up a big chunk of bandwidth and they don't like to add more to the load. (Personally, while I can understand the appeal of automatic-addition to RA for series re-watch shows, it would be horrible for first-run-broadcast, as you'd get a RA thread full of spoilers unless you happen to be watching on the same schedule as the thread-poster. So the mods would have to build some kind of opt-in-to-auto-RA button you could toggle by show, in which case it seems like the 'My Fanfare' view already serves much the same purpose.)

Yeah, I understand if the mods don't want to add an additional burden to recent activity link, and having it for first-run shows would be a disaster. I'll just use My Fanfare, thanks for the reminder.
