Thanks to this feature-request and the ability to use the OR operator, we can have multiple tags and can include wildcards in tags to make broad filters in RSS feeds. In the main Sci-fi & Fantasy.SE chat room we use this to get a kinda ridiculous filtered feed of questions on Movies & TV.SE that are sci-fi/fantasy.

I was trying to expand it just now to add a few more works. Starting with star-trek* is the new stuff in the feed URL:

http://movies.stackexchange.com/feeds/tag?sort=newest&tagnames=science-fiction+or+fantasy+or+star-wars+or+game-of-thrones+or+interstellar+or+batman+or+lord-of-the-rings+or+marvel-cinematic-universe+or+doctor-who+or+star-trek*+or+the-hobbit+or+harry-potter+or+the-matrix+or+despicable-me

Trying to save this monstrosity of a feed URL generates a cute cat developer error page. What are the limitations of the chat feeds that I'm bumping into here?

  • Just came across this and your post while digging for some info on RSS Feed stuff, and I think you're hitting the limitation on number of tags described in the answer there. I don't know the exact number of the limit, though you have more tags here than the example there. – Tinkeringbell May 17 at 20:15
