    (yeah I’ve posted this before, but it’s a handy thing many people will have missed the first time around)

    While you can subscribe to an RSS feed of comments on a blog entry, the LD website doesn’t have anything like that for comments on your game. So I made a bookmarklet that uses some Yahoo Pipes magic to make one!

    Screenshot of me checking my game's comments in Google Reader!

    WordPress wants to mangle it so I can’t give it to you directly in this blog post, but you can get it and see instructions for using it over here.

    It is a bit fragile in that it is looking for particular bits of html, so if the site changes a little it will probably break horribly, but so far so good!

    1. someone says:

      That’s useful,
      The link back to the page seems broken though, using firefox live bookmarks the comments link to http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-20/?action=preview&uid=1207http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-20/?action=preview&uid=1207 (the correct url but twice) resulting in failure.
