Threadbot should probably post this earlier! It's almost Saturday here :)
Hah yeah that's my bad, I fucked the time up.
No worries! Any progress on stickying posts or setting up an RSS posting thing?
I was thinking that ideally an RSS would load posts and be able to remove stuff. For example all It'sGoingDown stuff tacks on "- It's Going Down" to the end of every post title which I manually remove each time. And Enough Is Enough always puts hashtags all over their article titles also that it'd be nice to automatically have removed.
I never did reddit. How does free talk work :)
I'll try to get some of that done today or tomorrow. Is there an IGD rss? I don't see one.
People just brought up any random shit they didn't want to make a whole thread about. Often just updates about their lives. I didn't know you were never even on reddit! How'd you find this site then?
I don't remember! I have looked at reddit before but never made an account.
I think someone checked and saw an RSS for IGD before, I'll have a look also!
Edit: couldn't find it, have emailed them to check.
How do I add someone as a mod on a forum?
Standard procedure is to request it in meta and then the user gets added as moderator by an admin unless/until the community objects.
Mods cad demod themselves but I don't think that they can add mods - not sure.
Assuming you wanted to add u/ThreadBot to f/TestGround I've done that now.
Oh okay thanks, I didn't realize mods couldn't just add new mods to their own forum.
Yeah it's kinda weird now that I think about it. I'll add it to the feature w/wishlist.
And keep in mind starting a forum makes you mod automatically, in case somehow that's slipped your mind.
if you have the bot start f/itsgoingdown and then set it up that all the IGD stuff gets auto-posted there, that seems ideal?
Oh sure, I can do it that way.
I like that approach since it'll encourage people to subscribe to things they want to see and have the option not to have every IGD or whatever article in their feed.
If you have another way you prefer though then go for it! It's just the only one I've thought of.
Especially if you end up writing some kind of script that allows anybody to do this with an RSS feed, it seems wortwhile that each gets its own forum so people can be picky about what they see.
I use https://itsgoingdown.org/feed/
Perfect, thanks. Couldn't find that.
Great! Thanks. I couldn't find it anywhere.
