Please Sticky this

I’ve created RSS feeds for Kongregate.

Badges
Challenges
New Games with High Ratings

Feedback, Comments, Bug Reports and Requests are welcome.

Known issues:

  • The service these feeds are using1 doesn’t support CSS when formatting feed content
  • Some Challenges in the past require achievements in more than one game, I’ll update the feed next time this occurs
  • The RSS feed only updates once per 24 hours

Up until Kongregate changed the layout of the badges page.1
Also, I’m now taking requests for customized RSS Feeds.

1 Something like November of Last Year?

Would JSON feeds count? Cause they got a ton of those. Stuff for badges, profiles, game data, etc.

Use you RSS Feeds with an RSS Reader to get updates on things

RSS = xml format.
JSON = similar to xml format, but more compressed.

Example JSON feed on Kong:

http://www.kongregate.com/api/user_info.json?username=jimgreer

//returns:

{"user_id":1,"username":"jimgreer","private":false,"friends":[],"muted_users":[],"page_num":1,"num_pages":1,"success":true,"user_vars":{"id":1,"username":"jimgreer","age":39,"level":43,"points":12129,"avatar_url":"http://cdn3.kongregate.com/user_avatars/0000/0001/k.png?4424-op","levelbug_url":"http://cdn1.kongregate.com/images/presentation/levelbug/levelbug43.gif","chat_avatar_url":"http://cdn3.kongregate.com/user_avatars/0000/0001/k_chat.png?4424-op","friends_online_names":"AlisonClaire, scottbilas, CBR77, WillianGallis, Callanthae, and more!","friends_online_count":16,"unread_shouts_count":15,"unread_whispers_count":17,"kreds_balance":50,"curator":true,"developer":false,"moderator":true,"forum_moderator":true,"admin":true,"silenced_until":null,"game_title":"Panda - Tactical Sniper","game_url":"http://www.kongregate.com/games/Rob_Almighty/panda-tactical-sniper"}}

What a headache so far, my feed reader keeps displaying duplicates!

Hello. I have decided to create my own RSS feed using Feed43.com. Below is the link that creates nifty feed with organized: icon, game and badge titles, brief descriptions, difficulty and of course links to related game. Tested on Google Reader.

If You have any suggestions or ideas for different layouts, let me know. I have source code of this feed so it’s not a problem for me to extract feed in a different way.

http://feed43.com/kongregate_badges.xml

BTW: I was not able to move “— Delivered by Feed43 service” below the table. Adding style=“clear: both” to table or additional div/p around table does nothing. If You have any ideas how to move it down then let me know.

Here is preview on default Fiefox reader example (look on Picasa):
