Roedecker Rss - Trial In Progress!

Please note that I'm currently testing a new feature designed to bring in selected RSS news feeds into TIWWA on an experimental basis.

Roedecker's World has been set up with this in mind and the first RSS news feed imported into a News Forum, currently from the BBC.

You will however notice that when searching for new posts, Roedecker's Posts will display as new items in your search. So when searching for new posts, you might want to flick through the pages to see the latest posts from our 'normal' members! Please feel free to add your reply comments to anything that interests you.

My apologies for clogging the View New Posts option but I'm trying to introduce a new feature.

Until a solution is found to remove Roedeckers RSS's new topics from View New Posts results, I have 'instructed him' to only fetch news a Midnight, once a day.

Does anyone have any thoughts to share on this new feature or even RSS feeds of a Millenniumistic nature?

As long as the feed posts are appearing in the VIEW NEW POSTS line-up, I don't think it's very practical. The incoming news stories seem to completely dominate any and all real conversation here on the board when one uses that feature. (And, when I visit TIWWA, I review what's been happening using only the VIEW NEW POSTS feature. At the moment, I'm seeing BBC rugby news but not any Millennium discussion.)

I have to agree on these views... seems more like spam than disscussion topics. :ouro:

Well, all I can say is I was a bit confused as to who this member was, and why they were just doing news posts. I was about to send "him" a repremand, when I realized what was actualy going on.

And what does RSS mean?

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

Basically feed for information :clapping:

You took the words right out of my mouth, Ravenwolf! I reacted the same way you did, and even when I learned what was going on, I was still alittle peeved when "RSS" is listed in the day's top ten posters! Not fair!! :tongue::bash:
