Planet feeds (and DevPlanet feeds too!)

Just noticed that Reddit also supports RSS (just add .rss behind the url). Any thoughts about adding for example https://www.reddit.com/r/opensourcegames/ to the planet?
Would give a lot of additional updates, but probably a lot of duplications as well...

If there are no substantial objections I will redirect the planet. and planetdev. subdomains to the new HubZilla based planets in a few days.

Pending DNS caching issues the planet & planetdev subdomains now redirect to the new Hubzilla based planets.

Ah, so that's why my RSS feed reader broke for the FGD feed :/

Are there any plans to provide Atom and/or RSS feeds for the planets? Because, like I said last year, I can't integrate whatever the hell this new-fangled thing is into my RSS reader...

The Hubzilla Atom feeds do not work?

https://social.freegamedev.net/feed/devplanet

You could also try the experimental alternative Friendica based Games Planet (sorry but we are currently experimenting with various options and the Hubzilla ones don't federate over ActivityPub well):

and for the Atom feed:

Huh, I didn't know these exist. They're not linked anywhere on https://social.freegamedev.net/pubstream.

The old http://planet.freegamedev.net/atom.xml URL 301s to https://social.freegamedev.net/channel/planetatom.xml, which is a 404.

Ah, okay, they are referenced on https://social.freegamedev.net/channel/planet / https://social.freegamedev.net/channel/devplanet. I'm too old for this kind of thing :P

But yeah, they seem to work. :)

To be honest, I would much rather have people use the actual federated AP feed instead of the one-way RSS feed... but if it works for you that's also fine :)

Just FYI: the pubstream is an aggregation of all the various channels on the server (I disabled the global pubstream that would also pull all sort of messages from other federated websites), just right now it is mainly populated by the planet channels as there aren't that many other users (The Pubstream also doesn't support Atom feeds).

You can now also join the #news channel on our new Mattermost based Team Chat and follow the Planets that way.
