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.

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!
