Rails advice

Good Evening,

I am currently working on an idea for a Rails app, now without giving too much away, does anybody have any advice on how to go about the following.

Say you have a system with a feed and user profile. What components would you look into to have an alert class that when activated adds this users profile to a new feed where it only shows people with this alert activated.

To be clear I am not looking for someone to do this for me just advice on the steps to take

It gets into that in the Advanced Rails section on here, if you're asking what I think you're asking. For example, it takes all blocked users and removes them from the feed. I'm sure it'd be similar to take all blocked users and make just a feed of them, if you really wanted to. You'd just tag them as something else.

Wicked. About to start section 2, but has been a learning curve as i wanted to do it in Rails 4 so had to research whenever it broke.

Thanks for posting :)
