Dos and Don'ts of diary syndication
We should have, I think I have said before, have a nice front-page article about how to go about syndicating your RSS Feed to Advogato, and why it is one's best interests to follow the advice or not syndicate at all. I should write it, shouldn't I? But...

...I've not had a lot of appetite to contribute to Advogato in the last few months, though. I generally feel that there are too many things broken around here, and if one of the strengths of Advogato is that it can be and is run by the participants, and not the benevolent dictator, on the other hand that means that there is great inertia standing in the way of improving things.

The impetus for this post comes from a couple of mindcrime's recent posts. Kudos to mindcrime for the progress with Project Shelley, but posting diary entries with more than ten large screenshots in them is not the kind of syndication that recentlog should be receiving. I don't want to drop mindcrime's output from my view of recentlog, but equally, I don't want to have this kind of material there.
