Remove from DR

Post by bob » 02/25/11, 12:52 am

I'm putting together a list of sites to delete from DR. (Got a lot to add too.) Any feedback?

I forget, have you got a database with how many people are subscribed to each headline? If so I'd use that to determine what to delete.

Not a good idea. Some sites may have only one subscriber, but they're in the database because someone put them there and views their headlines regularly. I should have made myself clear... I'm not talking about removing sites from the db, but rather from the List of Recommended Sites, either because they're just not that good, or because they've gone tits-up, or whatever...

Thanks, Red... Just fixed Netcraft. Every now and then I run a script that deletes all sites that haven't updated for 30 days. Probably time to run it.

Sorry I meant with this limited to recommended sites of course. Yeah not actually removal as you've said.

Thanks, Red. Removing it, along with Virtual Plastic and Teknidermy (no activity for a long time). Anything else?

I think they're pretty well cleaned up now.

Can't decide to remove Major Geeks or not... About half the time they run their feed with illegal characters in it that won't parse... And it comes up "unavailable." I like the site though. But I can't fix their problem...

thehotfix.net is now forum based. the RSS feed requires login.

interesting note they have DR listed as an affiliate at the bottom of their main page.
