RSS Feeds

Postby derobert » Thu Nov 25, 2004 6:15 am

I've given the site its first RSS feed, the new videos (same as on the member's main page). Right now, it's only linked to the member's main page.

Should show up in any RSS-aware browser, such as Firefox.

What other RSS feeds do you want?

Well done! I understand thunderbird (mozilla webmail) can also handle rss feeds. Could the nic of the creator be added? Right now it only displays title. Whodunit and whatheycalledit would be great.

x2, although I'd like to see this incorporated in more ways other than an RSS feed.

There really isnt a need, and I applaud this embracing of technology. There's many rss feed readers, and they will let YOU manage the list however you want. The bookmarks thing in fx is not... too great. I prefer thunderbird myself.

This is fan management, at least in my opinion.

We don't need 2 things that do the same thing, especially since for the site to have it integrated is a hell of a lot more work, when your browser/mail client/rss client can do it for us already, and probably do it better.

Well, my suggestion is just based on the fact that I never really used RSS feeds myself, and compared to how often I visit the .org's main site or forums, I check emails rather rarely - so it would be nice to have it as a site feature for the lazy ones among us (not that it's a requisite or anything). :roll:

Is it possible to raise the number of videos in the RSS feed to 10?

I suppose so; what is the normally accepted maximum size of an RSS feed? The new_videos.xml feed is ~6K right now, if I went to 10 videos it'd of course be around 12K.

I don't know, I just figured that sometimes more than five videos are uploaded in an hour so the current rss won't cover them all unless the number of videos is increased or it updated more often.

I have a suggestion for how the feed should be displayed. Or at least, an option for it. First off, I'll show you how I'm viewing/applying it, since I think at least a handful of people would be interested in it.

I made 2 new syndication feeds on LiveJournal. What this lets me do is actually view RSS feeds on my friends page as new journal entries. These have become very popular and useful for things like web comics, new sites, etc. The two feeds are:

Imageamvorg_newvideo
Imageamvorg_starweek

Well, this suggestion is based around the New Videos feed since that's the only one I've seen in action thus far. If you go to that feeds info, you'll see that it makes an individual post for each video, which isn't necesarilly a BAD thing. However, in this instance, it means that you now have 5 new entries on your friend's page, each one with the video's full description on it. Now while some people might not mind that, I personally think it takes up quite a bit of room.

So while I'm not necesarilly suggesting we do away with that feed all together, I am suggesting an alternative way of displaying it. And let me say that I honestly don't know that much about XML/RSS so I don't really know how complicated this would be. But if it were doable, that'd be awesome :)

How I'm suggesting it look is the following (and I will just go ahead and use the 5 current new videos as the example):

<ul><li><b><a href="http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_myprofile.php?user_id=196814">Poetic_Kaos</a> - <a href="http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=55925">Heaven on Earth?</a></b>

</ul>

Keep in mind, that list of 5 would be included in one single updated, not 5 individual (however, if that were the only way to make it work, having it format this way would still be better, rather than including the long description)

I understand that doing this would probably take a significant amount of coding and that RSS feeds aren't exactly a high priority for the site, but at least keep it in mind.

As I was typing this up, the Weekly Top Star Scale feed updated and WOW... heh.... quite worse than the new videos, as it makes 20 new posts on my friends page :P So, if it were possible to format that one this way:

<ol><li>Video Title 1 - Creator Name - Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 2 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 3 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 4 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 5 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 6 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 7 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 8 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 9 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 10 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 11 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 12 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 13 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 14 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 15 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 16 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 17 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 18 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 19 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #.
<li>Video Title 20 - Creator Name
- Score #: # stars with an average of #. </ol>

Obviously, each of these would be links to the individual video. Granted this is still a fairly long/large feed, it certainly beats getting 20 individual posts, and it provides useful information.

Anyways, take these ideas into consideration :) I would offer to help you code all of this if I had any idea what I was doing with RSS/XML
