What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I'd be interested in an RSS feed for questions with at least a certain number of votes or replies. This might be implemented as a GET parameter appended to any feed URL.

For example, the following feed might return PHP articles with at least 20 votes: stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/php?v=20

The following feed might return jQuery articles with at least 15 replies: stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/jquery?r=20

This would purposely reduce the list of PHP articles for users interested in reading, but not necessarily replying to, specific topics.

Well, we do now have much better tag-based feed support:

Any way to get an RSS feed of 'newest' tagged questions?

what you're describing I am not sure we will do, but there is some pointlessness around "give me the 30 highest voted questions in [foo] tag" that I might add more to, later..

Hey Jeff, I was thinking more along the lines of "give me any posts that have at least 30 responses" (not the top 30 posts). For some tags I want to take more of a "read only" approach, so I just want the best Q and A's, not everything. It sounds like the "hot" designation may give a similar result. I'll give that a try. –  richardkmiller Oct 12 '09 at 8:33

This is possible now thanks to a flexible little app I created called stack2rss that converts API requests into RSS feeds.

A feed that does what you've described looks like:

http://quickmediasolutions.com/stack2rss/stackoverflow/questions?tagged=php&sort=votes&min=20&body=true

Here's essentially what is does:

  • Takes all questions tagged 'php'.
  • Sorts them by votes.
  • Filters the results to only include ones with vote count >20.
  • Returns the post body in the feed.

Hope that helps!

Very cool! I've subscribed to a few of these feeds to try them out. Thanks for posting this. –  richardkmiller Sep 22 '10 at 7:04
