Subject: Temporary RSS Changes
Hello everyone

There are going to be some changes to the RSS feed (news feed) at Nz17 Productions.

First, each site will be getting its own RSS feed. So Anifanatikku, ASO Radio, and Macrobo V will each have a personal RSS feed. However updates from all three will still be fed into our main news feed.

Second, the main news feed will have its size increased from ten news items to twenty-five news items. This is being done because sometimes when we have many updates in a small amount of time, recent updates will be knocked off the news feed just because they are a few hours older than the newest updates.

Third, because most people subscribe to our main RSS feed for the ASO Radio updates (in the form of Episodes delivered by podcast, usually through iTunes), we will be temporarily setting the main news feed address to redirect to the ASO Radio news feed address. This will be done for the next week so we have time to ensure that all podcast subscribers will be moved to the new newsfeed/podcast address. Once this time is over we will take down the redirect so that people can once again subscribe to the main news feed.

Fourth, the ASO Radio feed/podcast will be changed to list all of the Episodes available in MP3 format. This will hopefully increase our ranking on iTunes, help bring in new fans, and help our podcast appear in the new Podcast section at Digg.com. If and when that happens, I will link to the Digg address for our ASO Radio podcast page.

Because of these changes we will be changing the RSS subscription buttons that appear on the individual sites. I think what we will do is create a single page listing all of our RSS feeds, and change the individual Web sites to point to their own news feeds.

If you have any questions about these changes or news/RSS feeds in general, please ask them in this thread.
