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.

I'm aware of these feeds, but the PopularFeeds includes AskMefi. I'm looking for Blue-posts only.

You could make a Yahoo pipes version that only allowed posts from www.metafilter.com, of that popular feed page, then it'd filter out the rest.

I s'pose I could. I only requested it because you've made specialized feeds for many other things, so why not the popular favorites page?

Doesn't an RSS feed publish in a linear fashion? The popular favourites page is dynamically generated based on favourites. How would that work?

I don't know much about RSS feeds.

I'll add it to the to do list.

Yes, but it'd still work. You wouldn't know where a particular post ranks, how high it gets, or when it falls off. Anything that makes the list would show up as new for you in a newsreader, though.

Here's the new feed: Popular Posts at MetaFilter.
