The Morningstar RSS feed post form Wizard's RSS feed is back with a vengeance. The feed post will show up in the chat RSS feed hourly if not more often. What can we do to address the issue?

I think I see what you mean - the Morningstar post is reappearing over and over in our chat's RSS ticker, right? It seems that in their RSS feed, the Morningstar post is getting its pubDate property updated reguarly to be today. Heck, we're all aware it was published a couple of weeks ago, but check what it's set to at the time of this writing:

<dc:creator/>
<title>Morningstar</title>

<description/>
<pubDate>Tue, 08 Jul 2014 00:00:04 PST</pubDate>
<guid>http://www.wizards.com/DnD/Article.aspx?x=dnd/news/morningstar#93104</guid>

And tomorrow, it'll say it was published tomorrow.

Let's remove their feed from the chat temporarily.

We can take another look at it in a few days, and if it's not screwing up any more at that point, we'll add their feed back to chat.

  • \$\begingroup\$ When the question was asked, we did a few tests, and checked the RSS page when it reposted. The RSS page was identical, with the timestamp and guid etc, but I see perhaps our browsers were just cached. I have this same feed on my blog and it does not repost the morningstar entry. \$\endgroup\$
