[RSS PSA] Reminder to update your MetaFilter RSS feeds

Last month, an apparent error in Feedburner caused several of MeFi's legacy RSS feeds to not update for up to a week (at least in my popular feed reader, Feedly). The problem has been fixed -- for now. But it's an important reminder that the Feedburner platform is increasingly unreliable -- if it were ever shut down by Google, the thousands of readers who rely on those feeds to keep up with the site may lose contact without even realizing it. The good news is that the site has a new set of self-hosted feeds that should remain active no matter what Google does. So, if you read the site using an RSS reader, please take a moment to update your reader to the new feeds -- and check the related posts on MetaFilter and Ask MetaFilter for a list of posts you might have missed during the outage.

Resubscribe to MeFi’s RSS feeds

I wanted to let you all know that we're replacing FeedBurner with RSS feeds hosted on our own domains before next week’s Site Update. [more inside]

Tech hiccup tidbits: RSS and certificate issues, now resolved

Just a heads up about a couple little bumps in the last day: we had a small misconfiguration with MetaFilter's SSL certificate configuration that might have lead to browser warnings in some situations (but no actual danger), and the site's RSS feeds were stalled out for a bit as of yesterday. Both are mostly resolved now, some details inside! [more inside]

Why is feedly loading Ask Metafilter (only) in an unlogged-in state?

How come in iOS, Feedly randomly and frequently loads posts from AskMe -- and only AskMe -- in the unlogged state (modern)? Even if I click thru to open the post in a browser I remain logged out and unable to log in (page just refreshes) even though I stay logged in (in classic) in other tabs and browsers. When it happens, I end up having to open a new tab, go to the Ask front page, and click the question when I find it. It's annoying enough and frequent enough that I often don't bother. [more inside]

MyFanFare RSS feed?

I do a lot of my MeFi browsing through an RSS reader (NewsBlur if anybody cares). One page I cannot find an RSS feed for is MyFanFare, which is a great thing that could be made better IMO if it came in the shape of an RSS feed. Is there a pony frolicking in the fields nearby MeFi HQ that could fulfill this need? Are there others out there who also feel this pony would make a good addition to the MeFi stables?

RSS not updating

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 Seceder

PSA: 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]

Look, I know it's a crazy thing to ask, but....

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.

We Need a Hero

@mathowie: "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]

MeFi RSS feed is invalid

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.

help with managing my blue/green addiction^H^H^H habit?

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]

thread subscriptions without RSS?

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?

Feeds problem

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?

Why "Filters" before questions?

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?

feed for personal activity

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]
