Lightbulb Adding Blabbermouth Headlines Via RSS Automatically...

Thanks to today's vbulletin uprade, we can now automatically import Blabbermouth via RSS into our news section. I've set the system to check Blabbermouth every 60 minutes. Note that we're only importing their headlines and RSS summaries, not the full stories. Each story will have a link back to the original article.

I'm not importing all of their headlines / summaries, just ones that are of interest to the board. Add your bands to this thread... I'll incorporate them as we see how well this works.


The current list (11/09/2006 8:15 PM PST):

Arch Enemy
Black Sabbath
Dimmu Borgir
Dio
Dream Theater
Edguy
Gammay Ray
Helloween
Iron Maiden
Metallica
Motorhead
Opeth
Queensryche
Rush
Tool
Ozzfest
Gigantour

I'd like Megadeth and Anthrax too, please.

Does this importing system have some sort of manual filter to it (i.e. It's not gonna send us the "Sharon Osbourne takes a shit today" headlines is it?)

Alice Cooper!

This looks like it could be a cool feature. And as far as "Sharon takes a crap" type of stories NP Jr. - I wouldn't worry about it. If it's truly BS I'm sure one of us will just nuke it.

It's a completely manual filter. It will includes headlines/stories that contain the words on my list. So if the headline / story contains "MEGADETH takes a shit today" appears on Blabbermouth, it will generate a post.

I wasn't planning on including Sharon Osbourne but I do want Ozzfest news.

We've got to see how well the filter really works.

Well, just a general example, you know what I'm talking about.

I find it funny that that place is trying to "clean up its act" yet can't resist posting that kind of crap.

I have to experiment a bit, probably contact support.

The term Dio just triggered stories containing the word stuDIO. I'm trying 'Dio' now... IT geeks here will get it...
