Does the format on those look okay? anything else i should add? I'm working on moving the "Bad RSS feed stuff" into actually being checked by the script, rather than an additionally descriptor.

Thanks for any feedback.

9:06PM - hearthmath and "preferred" feeds?

heartmath_rss seems to be working properly now. However, both this feed and heartmath_feed are copies of the same thing, and the _rss version is hosted by newsisfree, while the _feed is hosted by HeartMath. I wouldn't refer any users to the _rss, as it's not formatted as well, and it dropped one post in the past 20. but it should most likely be corrected on the main page.

Is there a list of the "preferred" feeds anywhere? dilbert_feed vs. dailydilbert (daily dilbert tends to drop days, dilbert_feed doesn't.), wilwheaton vs wilwheaton2 (the first is just headlines, but it has all the entries. wilwheaton2 has fulltext, but misses a fair number of entries and can be spammy if wil goes through and edits lots of posts.) etc. Is there a list, should there be? Should I make a poll or go back to studying for my math final? should i stop treating this community as my personal playground? Vote in the comments!
