SE sites have associated chat rooms. This site's main one is TRPG General Chat. Check it out!
SE chat supports RSS feeds, which shows up as little ticker pop-ups from time to time.
For the last seven years this meta post has been the place to decide what goes in our ticker feed (click here for current feed list), but it's getting cluttered with outdated material and the years-old voting no longer reflects the modern chat's constituency. So I'm starting over with this post!
Vote for feeds!
Pretty straightforward procedure, really. Each "answer" post is suggesting one feed to add to the chat ticker.
- Click on the links to see what content the feeds will be posting to the site.
- Vote up feeds you personally want to see.
- Just ignore the ones you don't want to see.
- Save downvotes for when you think something is actively detrimental rather than just irrelevant to your interests. (Please consider leaving an explanatory comment if you do this.)
(If you don't ever plan to participate in the TRPG General Chat, please think about whether your vote is useful.)
This is meant to be a less-formal variant of the community ads procedure. Note that moderators/room owners will have to go in and make the changes by hand. There is no magic vote number for a feed to automagically get into the ticker (I reserve the right to veto feeds with bigotry, for example) but feeds run by rpg.se chat-users are likely to get in faster and with fewer votes: we want to encourage each others' projects!
If you think there's a feed that should show up in general chat, add it as a new answer here, with one feed per answer.
Feed suggestions should be pitches telling us why we'd like the feed in our ticker, providing useful information like general focus, update frequency (feeds which update many times a day are not popular with the chat), and representative examples of posts.
Please include a link to both the feed's readable page and RSS page, if they're different; your feed is less likely to get voted for if you only link to the RSS code page, and less likely to get put in the ticker if the room owners have to go digging through the site for the RSS link.
08 May 2020: I've pruned the existing feed list back significantly (mostly chopping dead wood and feeds whose content has become less acceptable over time) and I'm pulling the remaining feeds' pitches over from the old thread. If they don't get votes I'm probably gonna remove them too.
