(Does anybody use it anyway?)

I've updated my script generating RSS feed of Warlight forums, fixing what got broken during the 1.0 update of Warlight and adding Ladder subforum.


You can subscribe to any subforum here: http://warlightrss.heroku.com/

I used to use it! But now the Dashboard page takes its place and I'll probably stop using it.

Also, I'm going to make a small update to the html to fix the widths on Chrome probably tomorrow or late tonight. Hopefully this won't make more work for you.

Wow :D

Dashboard only shows last 10 posts and it still requires me to remember which ones I've already read. So I prefer RSS.

Fixing widths shouldn't be a problem, and even if it is, it'll probably take 5 minutes to fix. Adjusting to a bit different way of linking and specifying the poster took like 10 minutes.

Will use RSS now, as the forum itself is still a bit rudimentary. Thanks!

Would it be possible to include the message texts in the RSS feed? To view them directly in the feed reader?

Yes, it certainly would. But, right now the script is fairly simple - it just scans the forum index pages. Including text would mean that
1. I'd have to create a lot more logic to scrape the posts, and I just don't have enough time for bigger projects, and
2. the results would have to be cached, since instead of sending just one request to Warlight page every time somebody refreshes his RSS, I'd be sending, say, 25 of them or more - and that could take a few minutes instead of a few seconds. And I can't for the life of me figure out how to create or access database at my current hoster ;)

Never mind, I'll just have to stop being lazy then.

I just might make it one day, it's bugging me a little, too. Just don't expect it anytime soon :)
