An RSS feed for your global inbox is finally here! I have put a lot of effort into making this process as smooth as possible. Here are the steps you need to take to create your custom RSS feed: Head on over to my website and register for an account: http://quickmediasolutions.com/accounts/register (Registration is free and you also get some other nice ...

First, for all website admins using sites with output caching: If you use [OutputCache], DO NOT UPGRADE TO .NET 4.6.2 Details: Unfortunately, this was far larger than your feed and we're still assessing the damage. There is a critical bug in the 4.6.2 release of the .NET Framework which causes cache poisoning in a severe fashion. Though the cause is a ...

Im just wondering why my codegolf account was killed I even contributed a game concept tiny.cc/ZeVeRoH all history deleted on that site. You did not contribute a game concept, you spammed the main and meta sites with questions and answers that contained nothing more than a poster and the URL of your website. Most of your other posts were just nonsense. ...

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...

The canonical URL for the podcast feed is now: http://blog.stackoverflow.com/feed/podcast/ 301 redirects have now been set up from old feed URLs to the new canonical one, so subscriptions should update automatically. We are working on re-submitting to the iTunes store to get that piece settled too (once some final kinks are worked out). The blog is now ...

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.

Using Stack2RSS, you can use the following feed URL to accomplish this: http://stack2rss.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/questions?tagged=ruby&body=true&pagesize=100 Note the inclusion of the pagesize=100 parameter, which is the maximum number of items that can be retrieved from the API.

https://stackoverflow.blog/feed/ is the canonical feed for all posts on the blog. Missing posts on that feed is a bug.

I don't know why it is so hard to add an RSS feed based on tags. I couldn't seem to follow @Jeff's directions and it seemed like too much trouble to run a script. However, taking a clue from @mrucci's answer and doing some more experimenting, I found a way to get the RSS feeds that I want without too much trouble. The general format is [stack exchange ...

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....

This is not an answer, but a way to using these feeds. I've recently discovered rsstail and multitail, both by Folkert van Heusden. These are utilities which allow you to create, effectively, a "tail" of an RSS feed (for rsstail), or of one or more files and/or processes (for multitail), in a terminal window. multitail adds a bunch of additional features, ...

In general this is as designed. We want people eyeballing every change: Did it fix the question and make it answerable? Did it vandalise the question? (Flag please) Is the user abusing edits to "bump" with lots of trivial changes? (Flag please) Even trivial edits (which otherwise go totally unreviewed from uesrs with enough rep) need checking. You can ...

Yeah, unfortunately the metric truckload of tags scenario doesn't work all that well at the moment (it times out in SQL, often). We're working on a long-term fix for this (get rid of the SQL!) that's not far from complete and should resolve these issues. I'll tag this as status-planned until we switch tag sets over to the new engine.

Fix your URL. Anything after a # will not be sent to a server - it is treated as a fragment. You need to URL encode it to %23: http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/feed?tags=c%23&location=london

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* ...

I would really love an API to be able to view the history of votes that I have cast. I'm writing an application to view my past activity per day, and I find that I upvote things on stackoverflow a couple of times a week, and when I do, it means that I just found an answer to a problem I had; viewing those votes in my application would very quickly allow me ...

If I understood you correctly, the feed link is located in the bottom of the page. For Buddhism.SE it would be https://buddhism.stackexchange.com/feeds and for Academia.SE it would be https://academia.stackexchange.com/feeds.

It is the correct link: https://meta.stackexchange.com/feeds/question/328187 The RSS URL is shown under the Hot Network Questions widget on each Q&A page:

I haven't been able to find a native way of doing this for stackexchange, and George Edison's original for individual stack exchange sites no longer works, so here is the equivalent today: http://stack exchange site/feeds/user/user id/responses http://stack exchange site/feeds/user/user id Nor can I find an equivalent for Stack Exchange, and guessing the ...

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 ...

Needed to use c%23 in the url instead of #. Doh!

Not possible at the moment, I'm afraid, according to the most exhaustive list of SE RSS feeds I could find. One option is to pull the all questions feed, then check each individual question's feed, which contains answers.

The podcast feed was an unforeseen casualty when the blog was updated to its shiny new iteration. Now that six to eight weeks have passed, the issue has been fixed and your podcast player should automatically redirect to the new feed and start picking up new, and missed episodes. If needed, the canonical URL for the podcast feed is: http://blog....

Some translations were missing, and the user name was never appearing in the "Comment by" section due to a bug. Fixed.

Sigh; yes, that's probably me; I've disabled the smoke-test server related to this while I investigate. Almost certainly the same bug as this, manifesting in a slightly different way. Both look very-much like the wrong offsets being applied to a pre-indexed chunk'o'data. For you it meant you got slightly the wrong page of records; for other folks it has ...

This is now possible. Basically I've added the ability to link your account on my website to your Stack Exchange account. You will then get a custom URL you can subscribe to.

The problem here is one of privacy. RSS, by convention, does not typically involve any authentication. So there is nothing to keep me from subscribing to your global inbox feed, if it were implemented standard-like. HTTP authentication could be applied, but that would break RSS feed readers' ability to read the feed. Another option would be for each user's ...

This can easily be done with Stack2RSS, a tool I wrote that converts data retrieved from the public API into an RSS feed. In your case, the feed looks something like this: http://stack2rss.stackexchange.com/ {site} /search?intitle= {search_terms} Example that provides an RSS feed for questions that contain the tags php and mysql: http://stack2rss....

@RayLuo From what I saw on http://stackexchange.com/filters, you can add several filters to subscribe to multiple tags. See the screenshot:
