They're not only participating, but instead invading... Spamming with links to this thread... We're doomed! Fixed, but translate: no longer works. RIP Feeds User, 26 Aug 2014 12:32 PM Please all remember his last words...

If you mean this one: The important thing there is the deleted message immediately before it, which was: translate: H4XX0RD! So, try typing: translate: チャットは今翻訳をサポートします。 The "post a translate message, then delete it" is arguably abuse of the system. If people don't get over that, I will make changes to prevent it. Edit: this will be prevented in about ...

Projects such as Stack2RSS and the Election Statistics page didn't make the long journey cross-country to Oregon when the network failed over, so they're unavailable until the NYC data center is operational again or they're manually moved. Currently there's no known ETA for the transition back to NYC, but you can keep up-to-date on developments by following ...

I'd not like to see this option getting implemented. Against: ◉ It is not practical. Feeds of any kind will consume transcript space, and therefore randomly interrupt conversations, if any. This will not encourage conversations, nor provide more opportunities for users to engage with each other. For a more practical example, come take a tour with me into ...

I've created a chatroom specifically for this: CR Answers. Yes, the Active Questions view does a very good job at showing the questions that might have been... Posted Edited Retagged It also bumps questions with answers that might have been... Posted Edited And that is fantastic. The RSS feed being requested here would allow us to quickly (without ...

You can hide them on your browser using a user stylesheet. Install Stylish, and then create a new user style. In Firefox, paste the following into it: @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); @-moz-document domain("chat.stackexchange.com"), domain("chat.stackoverflow.com"), domain("chat.meta.stackexchange.com") { /* Hide the ticker. */ div#...

I can confirm there is a validation error in the feed: >>> import urllib2 >>> data = urllib2.urlopen('http://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/delphi').read() >>> data[:10] '\r\n<?xml ve' There is a CRLF (carriage-return + newline) combo before the <?xml .. ?> declaration statement, and the XML 1.0 standard only allows for ...

So I am pretty confident that the messages from feeds do not count for the purposes of chatroom pruning. You are correct. Messages from system users (those with negative user IDs) are ignored for this purpose.

There is no such standard functionality on the site. You would need a server side implementation that responds to the Feeds bots requests and produce an RSS feed from the Hot Network Questions list. I've created a proof of concept in Glitch here (and find the implementation here) The Glitch app offers a route /hnq/:site. This route returns an XML RSS Feed. ...

What I can't do is assign the feed back to user -263, the "original" Captain Obvious. What I can do is create a new feeds user, -786, and copy Captain Obvious' name and avatar across to it. So I've done it.

Since this is taking a while to get a response from, I've created my own chat bot that searches for new answers only and posts them to the CR Answers chat room. The bot is rudimentary right now, but it is a work in progress and gets the job done.

The scheduler was not running properly for chat.se - we gave it a kick, so it should be fine now.

You can consume your user RSS Feed to get all your activity.

I merged a chat PR earlier that added a couple new checks on room properties when creating a new message. And apparently a room can be null at that point. How? Why? Nobody knows, but null reference exceptions can be quite cruel. The checks have been corrected and feeds have resumed posting as far as I'm aware. If you're still having an issue with a feed, ...

Closed questions are not dead questions. If a user updates the closed question and possibly improves it to a point where it can or should be reopened, it deserves all the attention it can get. More or less hiding them at the bottom is not going to be very helpful. That this occasionally puts emphasis on questions which really should be/remain closed is ...

Yes, this is intentional. This is an Atom feed (also mistakenly called RSS feed - that's actually a different protocol, but it's using the same icon) and if you have an appropriate program/app (a so-called 'reader') it will organize all feeds you subscribe to (from Stack Exchange or other websites). If you don't have a reader, your browser will offer to ...

The easiest way to do this is the same as for unblocking regular users. Three simple steps:

A recent upgrade introduced a blank line above the xml declaration, breaking our feeds. This has been fixed and we've already deployed the change. Feeds should be working correctly now.

For the Rebol and Red chat room, I generated an Atom feed of answers to questions tagged rebol on StackOverflow. The operative code (Rebol, natch) is fairly basic and can be adjusted based on volume: do http://reb4.me/r/altxml ; xml library feed: load-xml/dom http://stackoverflow.com/feeds/tag/rebol answers: collect [ ; get the most recently *active* ...

It's a moderator-only ability that involves creating a new system user with a custom name to take the role of the Feeds bot for some particular feeds.

Fixed as of chat build 309 (already deployed as of current writing).

Go to the tag page itself; there will be a feed icon in the bottom right-hand corner: Right-click on that icon and select Copy Link to get a feed you can add to your chat room. The link will look something like this: https://scifi.stackexchange.com/feeds/tag?tagnames=lord-of-the-rings&sort=newest

The difference is that one has a QUESTIONS link that points to a question <link rel="alternate" href="http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/287407" /> while the other one <link rel="alternate" href="http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/287404" /> uses a QUESTIONS link that points to an answer. Proper answer links that DO one-box need to ...

A little while ago, the style for a full-form link to an answer changed from: https://site/questions/question-id/question-title/answer-id#answer-id to: https://site/questions/question-id/question-title#answer-id I'm not sure why this change was made, but I'm guessing it's to make it clear to search engines that they're in fact looking at the same page. I ...

Unfortunately I believe that it is not possible. The Hot Questions shows questions from all sites, disregarding whether you have an account there or not. For example, now it shows some questions from ux.stackexchange.com for me, and I don't even know what that site is about. So deleting the account will not help (off-topic: is it even possible to delete an ...

Steps to mute "ticker" feeds: Open the room's "feeds" tab. Find the ticker feed, and click "edit" Check the "like regular messages" radio button Click "save changes" Return to the room and ignore whatever user is associated with the feed. Yes, this will also change the style for everyone else using the room. You can take this opportunity to inform them of ...

No, there isn't. Do note that when you post to Stack Overflow, you license your contributions under the CC Wiki license. As long as your former employer links back to the content, they are within their rights to republish any of your contributions. You'll have to take this up with that company and and ask them to desist from publishing your answers, if ...

This is kinda complicated - there are two parts to it: one is what chat does with feeds and the second is how bounties work and how question feeds work. On the chat side - chat remembers the time it last checked a feed, so the next time it runs it will get the feed and only show items in the feed that were published after that date. (if it it a new feed and ...

Given that a lot of these "please add another feed..." feature requests aren't addressed quickly, you can use the Stack Exchange API to get the same information, though it will take some effort on your part if you really need a feed: The following API function doesn't require authentication, but you are rate limited if you don't get an API key. It returns ...
