Dear all,

Do you plan to create an RSS feed for the encyclopedia?

Best regards,
Clement

Hi Clement,

Thanks for the suggestion. We don't have any immediate plans to implement an RSS feed, though that could change in the future. A decision to implement RSS will be driven, in part, by demand from our visitors. This discussion thread is a great place for people to let us know if they would like to see an RSS feed on glbtq.

Since most articles in the encyclopedia, which now comprises more than 1500 encyclopedia entries and more than 100 special features, don't change often, an RSS feed is not likely to be as useful to glbtq's audience as it would be to, say, readers of a news site with daily or hourly updates.

Best Regards,

Wik

Dear Wik,

Thank you for the prompt responce. Two points two consider:
1) GLBTQ has already a news-letter, RSS feed can be a complementary way of distributing the same information.
2) Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has a very nice RSS feed that daily presents a painting of their collection. GLBTQ can do something similar.

Best wishes,
Clement
