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!

  • Oh snap, downvote bandwagon...

    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.)

  • @EatmoreTwisters: Isn't that why i would want instant notifications, to not have this lag associated with the feed?

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


You are too casual H.B.

Click your favorite tag every minute if you want to hang out with the big boys.

  • Now that's what i would call having no life :D

  • Gotcha now ;) I wouldn't call SO a browser game though, just the best MMORPG ever.

  • Browser game is the type, MMORPG is the genre.
