What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Overflow question and answer RSS feeds should have titles, so users can promote their usage using http://ifttt.com RSS feed tasks.

The URL I am trying to use for questions: http://stackoverflow.com/users/72057/foreachdev?tab=questions.

The URL I am trying to use for answers http://stackoverflow.com/users/72057/foreachdev?tab=answers.

The validation error ifttt.com returns is the following one.

The URLs you give aren't RSS feeds at all, they are normal page links to your user profile.

The RSS feeds I know do have a title (e.g. the RSS feed for this question has one).

You should consider using your user feed (your feed on SO) - it is linked on the bottom of your profile page.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" ...>
    <title type="text">User foreachdev - Stack Overflow</title>
