What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I'd love to something like this implemented: feed://stackoverflow.com/unanswered

We use a Stack Exchange site for user support. It would be very helpful to have an RSS feed showing a status of the neglected questions about our product. For Stack Overflow, it would help get new questions answered faster.

While it't nice to see a third party solution, Stackexchange should support this natively. –  Justin Dearing Nov 8 '10 at 4:18

This is possible using a small tool I wrote called stack2rss. It converts API requests into RSS feeds that can be subscribed to using any feed reader.

A query that does what you described would look like this:

http://quickmediasolutions.com/stack2rss/{site}/questions/unanswered?tagged={tags}&body=true

So, for example, the following would fetch all questions on SuperUser tagged 'firefox':

http://quickmediasolutions.com/stack2rss/superuser/questions/unanswered?tagged=firefox&body=true

it looks great, but for how long will you keep it free and available? –  jaime Jul 6 '11 at 2:24
    
@jaime: As long as I can. I have no plans for shutting it down anytime soon - although that's not to say that I wouldn't close it down if I had to. –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jul 6 '11 at 3:26
    
Ok, but your idea has got my interest, maybe for developing something like a tweetdeck extension to receive stackoverflow notifications :) –  jaime Jul 6 '11 at 14:48
    
@uɐɯsOuɐɥʇɐN It isn't accessible anymore –  Ayan Mullick May 29 at 18:01
    
@uɐɯsOuɐɥʇɐN How to the same for with new stackexchange api? I tried with http://stack2rss.quickmediasolutions.com/2.2/questions?site=askubuntu&unanswere‌​d&tagged=calendar....but it doesn't work. –  Khurshid Alam Jul 4 at 19:08

I think it would be a great idea or possibly extending this to include specific tags.
