The RSS feed for the blue hasn't updated since the post at 4:41 this morning (ET), and the Ask MetaFilter RSS feed hasn't updated since 3:27 this morning. Am I the only one seeing this?
Google Reader shuts down
in two weeks. Several alternatives
capable of importing your subscription lists and starred items (exportable via Google Takeout
) have popped up since the closure announcement, and that's OK. But there's one highly valuable aspect of Reader nobody can replicate and that will soon be lost forever: Reader's vast archive of cached feed data. Here's how to save it all. [more inside]
Is it too early for a "let's all become friends on whatever RSS readers we're trying" thread? [more inside]
Would it be possible to have the "Contact Activity" feed available as RSS? I always forget it's there until i happen to be on the main page and notice that my friends have been posting cool stuff.
Digg recently announced that it was building an RSS reader
. That's fine, but I don't like Digg, I like Metafilter. So even though this is way too much to ask, I was wondering: might Metafilter consider creating an RSS reader subsite?
I would pay an extra membership fee, or even an annual fee, and I don't think I'm alone.
Since a great deal of us have joined Newsblur, let's get connected to each other. [more inside]
: "I think RSS is so important that I'd take a job (leaving MeFi) at any startup aiming to make an improved Google Reader (w/ social features). [...] I'm serious, and feel free to email me. MetaFilter can continue with the employees running things."
I think that this maybe merits some serious discussion here, pronto. [more inside]
My RSS reader says the MetaFilter RSS feed
is invalid. I'd really like to use it because I've become RSS oriented and I'm not checking MeFi. It could be a problem with the RSS reader, Thunderbird 2.0.24 (I know there are other readers, but TB uniquely meets my needs), but the MeFi feed has worked previously and the AskMefi RSS feed
works currently. I've tried the feeds coming from the feed.feedburner.com
host and the one from feed2.
. Thanks in advance.
Anyone else found that subscribing to the Mefi Music RSS feed as an iTunes podcast stopped working a few days ago? [more inside]
My question is how do you manage meta and askmefi? I use RSS for both and given the "living" nature of the threads, I always feel like I'm missing something if I read a thread too soon so I usually whittle the queue down leaving the 100 most recent threads unread. But then I feel like I'm missing out on the more time-sensitive stuff. [more inside]
IRL: the RSS feed and the mobile site. [more inside]
Single RSS feed for all comments on all threads I have favorited? [more inside]
Are the IRL RSS feeds expected to work? [more inside]
I recently added the sideblog RSS feed to my Google Reader page. The title always shows up as undefined.
If you were not aware I wanted to point it out. If you were aware but didn't care, I'm fine with that.
Advice/pony: I often see what promises to become an interesting thread, only to forget about it afterward. is there any way to collect recent activity from several threads, without commenting in them?
Or is it just time to bite the bullet and learn this RSS rubbish?
Is it possible for me to get new posts with a particular tag sent directly to my email? [more inside]
Pony: I'd love to have a feed for this page: http://www.metafilter.com/home/popularfavorites
- A feed of all the recent posts which land on that page.
This would really help me keep up.
Is there a way to create an RSS feed from my favorites?
Is there any chance of getting a RSS feed for Recent Activity? [more inside]
In Google Reader breaks in text are displaying as brbr and single quotes are not appearing. This is in Firefox and in Chrome (Win7) but not on my phone (Palm Pre). [more inside]
How can I create an RSS feed out of the 7 day popular favorites
page on the Blue? If that's not a feature, well, there's my pony request.
Restricting user RSS feeds to specific tags? [more inside]
Where did the ‘X number of posts’ thingumijigwhatsit that used to be on the RSS feed disappear to? [more inside]
IRL Pony: I see that IRL is already built for places with no meetups posted yet
, but the RSS feeds come up with 404 errors
. Is there any way to put up placeholder or empty feeds here so I can subscribe in my reader?
Metafilter's rss feed fails the validator
. I've seen feedburner.com feeds often fail on mobile devices in the past, well feedburner.com often does weird stuff.
I would like an RSS feed for Ask.Metafilter popular favorites of the last 24 hours. Please. Thank you.
The November Experiment thread
has broken something RSS-related. [more inside]
Flag Suggestion: HTML Error in RSS [more inside]
Since yesterday, I haven't been seeing the comment count in the RSS feeds anymore. I've tried in the main metafilter feed and in the popular posts feed. Is it a bug, an oversight, a suppressed pony? Is it just me? Thanks for listening.
Thanks for my pony? [more inside]
Comments RSS? [more inside]
Advertisements in the RSS feed? Given that Matt has written before
about his disdain for this bullshit
, what gives?
Since the "troubles" all of my MeFi feeds have been messed up - posts are being identified in several different feeds etc.
Is the best course of action to wait for things to correct themselves as the deployment wrinkles get worked out or delete the old feed addresses and re-add now that the new servers are deployed?
This is probably obvious, which is why I couldn't find it in the FAQ or the search. Why do people preface their questions with "[blank] filter:"? Does it help future searches and RSS filters?
What's the best way to browse MeFi on an iPhone, usually via RSS? [more inside]
You might see old MetaFilter posts or comments showing up as new in Google Reader thanks to a new year glitch we fixed today. [more inside]
I've been playing with a lifestream app, and it would be interesting to be able to pull my metafilter posting/commenting history into that. The most streamlined way for that to happen would be via RSS. It doesn't seem like there's any way to do that currently.
Obviously this is a low priority, but if it's just a matter of flipping a switch, it could be interesting. [more inside]
Pony: Can the popular comments RSS feed include the title of the threads to which those comments were posted? [more inside]
Pony request for AskMe RSS feed: Number of comments and/or indication that the original poster has marked a best answer. Possible?
Pony request: An individual favourite posts rss-feed? [more inside]
I use the "Popular Comments" feed to keep track of all the great things you witty people are always saying. Currently, the title of each comment in the feed is formatted like so:
By orthogonality in MeFi
which does not provide any sort of context for the comment. [more inside]
Getting your own Favorites as an RSS feed? [more inside]
I know we've discussed not adding tags to front page posts, but how about the RSS feed? For posts that are somewhat cryptic, it could help with context.
I'm playing with a simple python MeFi text-based RSS checker. Code here

Two new features: resolved question sidebar (and feed) and RSS feeds for the Popular favorites page. All is explained within. [more inside]
The RSS feeds for comments update in reverse order - with the most recent comments showing up at the bottom of the list (oldest to newest) - unlike the feed for posts where the most recent is at the top (newest to oldest).
Why is this the case? [more inside]
The MetaTalk RSS feed is showing MeFi front page posts. I'm using NewsGator, and this has only happened (last I checked) within the past 24 hours. Does anyone else have this problem?
Greetings from a neophyte mefite. I was wondering: is there a way to get versions of the RSS feeds which don't include front-page posts that have already been deleted? If not, it's a feature suggestion, so please discuss. Apologies if I'm being dumb and this is simply not possible using RSS.
(For a while I enjoyed the "guess if this post has been deleted" game, but it's getting old...)
Anyone else getting double AskMeFi RSS posts?
