Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The tagged questions atom-feed lags behind about 4 minutes and i probably do not need to mention how long those filter emails take. This won't do at all for competitive question answering, i demand instant notifications of some description!

(I am being serious by the way)


Edit: As this request is faring just fabulously i will in all likelihood have to whip up yet another script or micro-app to get me the questions directly from the html-pages. But don't expect me to share that with you downers who are in denial, ha!

I just realized I am 14 minutes late to the downvote bandwagon, damn atom feeds. – user7116 Aug 31 '11 at 20:09
    
@sixlettervariables: I allow you to still downvote me :) – H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 20:10

Oooh, a bandwagon. Wait for me! (Although I can kinda see the point. What good is real-time notification if it is 4 minutes behind? Seriously.) – Pëkka Aug 31 '11 at 22:24
    
@EatmoreTwisters: Isn't that why i would want instant notifications, to not have this lag associated with the feed? – H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:30

"Competitive question answering" isn't the point. I demand you get a life of some description!

I meant SO, i do not play any browser games besides it, i detest them passionately. – H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:13
    
Gotcha now ;) I wouldn't call SO a browser game though, just the best MMORPG ever. – Marcelo Aug 31 '11 at 22:15
    
Browser game is the type, MMORPG is the genre. – H.B. Aug 31 '11 at 22:18
