Attention RSS Nerds

posted by on April 5 at 9:41 AM

The eagle-eyed may have noticed a wee little orange RSS icon—rss—next to the title of your favorite comment thread. That’s right, you can now subscribe to a feed for comments on any individual Slog post. Why you’d want to is questionable, but you can.

Wondering if there’s still any action on yesterday’s Haugen Amendment post? You’re not the only one! Subscribe to this feed and you’ll be kept up to date!

Trolls and anti-trolls will find this a major time saver!

Your Fnarf quotient will go up by 1000% ! Hurrah!

Seriously. This has been a long time coming. Thanks for getting this up. I will wager that your comment totals will actually go way up because flamewars will not now be limited to the dozen most recent posts.

er. is there an aggregated feed for all comments? or do you literally have to subscribe to a particular thread? don't get me wrong, that is handy for lively threads you know about. but an aggregated thread would let me find out about action on some other thread that I may have missed.

@4 - We'll look into this.

Yeah, aggregated feed, and then add it to the Mercury blog too, please.

Hey, Anthony, have you thought about adding a feature to catch accidental duplicate comments?

I was trying to be cute and double post comment #7, but you've already got a duplicate catcher! Cool, you're one step ahead.
