Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

It would be very fun if there was an IRC channel in which all new questions on SO were listed (title, tags, and (clickable) URL) automatically upon their creation.

There was - is it dead now? See – Dominic Rodger Apr 9 '10 at 16:13
@Dominic Rodger: As far as I can see, new questions at SO are not posted in #stackoverflow. – Andreas Rejbrand Apr 9 '10 at 16:19
they were though. At one time, there was a bot that posted each new question as it appeared on the site. Worked great when SO was young, but I suspect the huge volume of traffic killed it - even a year ago when I last checked in, it was noisy enough to seriously hamper other conversation. – Shog9 Apr 9 '10 at 16:43
There still is for for serverfault. (#serverfault on freenode) – Zoredache Apr 9 '10 at 18:45
For those finding this via Google: #serverfault is now completely defunct (registered to ChanServ, last use Feb. 2011, no ops). – larsks Sep 8 '12 at 0:43

This would be a possibility with the new StackOverflow API. Currently it is in Semi-Private Beta, so look for it to be released in the upcoming months.

I'm sure someone will do something like this by checking the new questions feed as often as the API allows (or once every 10-30 seconds).

This would probably be a fairly easy thing to implement.

See the #sobot channel on (and the #stackoverflow channel there too).
