I'd love to something like this implemented: feed://stackoverflow.com/unanswered

We use a Stack Exchange site for user support. It would be very helpful to have an RSS feed showing a status of the neglected questions about our product. For Stack Overflow, it would help get new questions answered faster.

  • @uɐɯsOuɐɥʇɐN How to the same for with new stackexchange api? I tried with http://stack2rss.quickmediasolutions.com/2.2/questions?site=askubuntu&unanswered&tagged=calendar....but it doesn't work. – Khurshid Alam Jul 4 '14 at 19:08

I think it would be a great idea or possibly extending this to include specific tags.
