removing filters

March 13th, 2007 by Asa Dotzler

If you were providing a comprehensive feed and counting on the filters in place at Planet Mozilla, please let me know because we’re not going to be filtering any more. Thanks.

    what if we don’t even know what that means? we should just ignore it, right?

  2. Asa Says:

    Yeah, just ignore it :-) Some blogs were being filtered so that only Mozilla-related posts were coming through. We decided that was bad. Someone then suggested that it was possible a contributor might have been counting on those filters to keep his Planet posts on topic. I just wanted to check and see if that was the case (though I suspect it won’t be.)

    What about those of us who just want Planet to be about Mozilla related subjects?

  4. Asa Says:

    Javier, we will, eventually, get a feed that’s as Mozilla-specific as possible (not sure what approach we’re going to take here, though — either using Planet filters or requesting Mozilla-specific feeds for anyone that wants on to that version.)

    I, for my part, only have the Mozilla category of my blog aggregated by the Planet, so for every single post I decide explicitly if I want it to show up on Mozilla Planet.

    That doesn’t mean you mustn’t push anything not 100% mozillian to planet, but it makes it easier for you to make a case by case decision, and that’s much better than a filter.

    I’m really not waiting for this religious spam to appear in my RSS reader.

    Please add back some form of filtering.
