The new Community in HC will be launched soon. I'm sure there will be a post about it :) Keep your eyes open!
Ah ha okay! Thanks for the reply.
I have recently taken on the task of moderating our Community and was required to "follow" about 300 topics that we had migrated over to the new HC in order to watch the activity. I am not aware of a system feature that allows a user (or admin) to request they be emailed for "all new topics" or "all new comments" or "notified for all activity" so that the process is simple. I'm looking forward to some improvements so that we can drive more people into our site on a more regular basis.
You're right there is no feature to automatically notify a specific person (or set of people) about new content in the Community. The closest would be subscribing a dedicated email address to all topics, which I realize is not easy. You might be able to automate this using the API: http://developer.zendesk.com/documentation/rest_api/hc/introduction.html, though I haven't looked too deeply into this.
Apart from that, this is something the Product team will address along with other Community improvements.
