Answer Only RSS feed for a user

I tried to get feed of the top rankers.
But there were too many feeds(because of their comments feed)
It's annoying me.

I want to get feeds of their answer.
Is it possible?

  • Discussions about stackoverflow should be done at meta.stackoverflow.com – Dan Mar 26 '10 at 15:38
  • I think you should ask this question here: meta.stackoverflow.com? – rochal Mar 26 '10 at 15:38
  • haha Dan, you're 2sec quicker ;-) – rochal Mar 26 '10 at 15:39
  • I don't understand what you mean; the user feed doesn't include comments. – balpha Mar 26 '10 at 15:49
  • It includes comments. – Benjamin Mar 26 '10 at 15:54
  • Oops, you're correct, they're just not in chronological order with the other posts. – balpha Mar 26 '10 at 15:59

This is possible using a small application I created called Stack2RSS that converts API requests into RSS feeds.

Example (shows all answers by Jon Skeet on Stack Overflow):

  • @George: It doesn't work since a couple of weeks ago. Your app make url like this. stackapps/questions/2439 .com is trimmed. – Benjamin Jun 11 '11 at 14:55
  • @Benjamin: There was an upgrade a couple of weeks ago. Can I please have the exact URL of the feed that is no longer working? – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 11 '11 at 16:28
  • @George: quickmediasolutions.com/stack2rss/stackoverflow/users/17034/… The feed works fine. But when I click the feed title to jump real page(stackoverflow.com) in Google Reader, it jump to wrong URL. – Benjamin Jun 12 '11 at 1:27
  • @Benjamin: Ah, you're right. I'll get this fixed - in the meantime, you can change stackoverflow to stackoverflow.com to make it work. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 12 '11 at 1:58
  • @George: Anything works anymore. What happened? – Benjamin Jun 14 '11 at 11:55
  • @Benjamin: Sorry about that. It's working now. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 14 '11 at 16:10
  • @George: Everything is fine again. Thanks. – Benjamin Jun 15 '11 at 1:16
  • When I add more users now, I get No Content at my feed reader. I have to click the link and should jump SO to read the answers. But for the users I registered long time ago, the feed get the answer's all content. So I can read them at my google reader conveniently. Why is it? – Benjamin Jan 31 '12 at 2:49
  • @Benjamin: Can you please provide me with the URL for the feed you are using? – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jan 31 '12 at 2:51
  • I have guessed what is the problem, though. It's the query string, right? – Benjamin Jan 31 '12 at 2:56
  • Your application added the query string body=true by default long time ago, but not anymore I think. – Benjamin Jan 31 '12 at 2:59
  • @Benjamin: I honestly can't remember if it used to add body=true or not. But it definitely does not add it now. You will need to explicitly add that parameter. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jan 31 '12 at 3:03
  • Okay fine. I know what the problem was now. I fixed all address missing query string. I'm using user app very well, everyday. Thank you. – Benjamin Jan 31 '12 at 3:05

This has been asked once before, but I don't see it having been responded to by an admin.
