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: https://stackoverflow.com/users/72057/foreachdev?tab=questions.

The URL I am trying to use for answers https://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>

You must log in to answer this question.
