I just subscribed to a personalized feed of all my Reddit subscriptions yesterday.

It doesn't seem to be very reliable though. Perhaps it's only updated once every X hours? Several times, I found items on my Reddit that have posted hours ago, but did not show up on the feed.

What's up with that?

lol, when I tried to register on the specific feed for reddit.com/r/help/comments/kjv0r/…, I got The feed being requested cannot be found. Are reddit feeds generally broken? – ripper234 Dec 31 '11 at 2:54
I have a similar problem. When I sign up for a Reddit personalized front page RSS feed (using Google Reader), I find that it generates one front page's worth of links once, and then only refreshes every few weeks. When it does refresh, it brings up links that have only a few upvotes, rather than the front page. – Matthew Piziak May 15 '12 at 23:01
