Not everyone is interested in manually heading to a website each day to check out what’s new – we’d rather get pushed any interesting new content when it arrives. Thankfully, there are a number of ways that you can get notified about new scifi.stackexchange.com content:
- Most pages have an feed, so you can subscribe to ‘recent questions‘, ‘questions about Doctor Who‘, or even to a specific question or user.
- Chat has iCalendar links, so you can subscribe to a room’s events or add a specific event to your favourite calendar application with a single click.
- The blog has a feed of its own.
- Great answers to questions (note that “great” here isn’t the same as in badges). I find this more useful than even the questions (which I’m likely to notice just browsing the site), since it’s easy to miss a great answer, especially if it gets added after you’ve already read a question.
- Requests for help (“can you answer”). If there’s a question that no-one has been able to answer, @stackscifi will put out a call for help.
- Notification of new blog posts, like this one.
- Upcoming chat events, like the fortnightly recommendation chat.
