Mailing list and rss.
good to hear this kind of thing.
im working on show last new ads and member search using web-services (based on the member_site released, that work out of box), but this kind of stuff is allways good to know.
we cant never predict the user behaviour, the most we can do is make avaiable options (otoh, sometimes is even better to not make all tools avaiable, as for some users, less is more. complicated things scary regular users)

best regards,
