sort of... but you dont have to be at gagt.com to see them.. you can be at any other website heres a screen shot of the rss feed from bbc and btefnet (area boxed in red):



what it does is it scrolls from right to left.. the items shaded in pink are the newest items (released less than 15 min ago)

you can!!

go to the vBulletin admin control panel,
on the left click on vBulletin options
select "External Data Provider" in the settings list
click edit settings
then you can enable the rss and/or the xml syndication systems
click yes to which ones you want to enable, then click save

pm iceman or one of the mods/admins, i'm sure they can either enable it, or let us know why they don't want it enabled. "because" is a good answer too....why?... because they pay the bills

An RSS feed would be really nice, it would probably cut down bandwidth usage for the site if people use it.

here's a screenshot of it in action

i believe it only captures the posts that are available to guests, so the "anything goes" forum won't be shown
