    Is there a discord web hook/bot for mmo champ news?

    The site that must not be named here keeps sending a lot of spam lately (promoting their youtubers and other unimportant stuff), so I wonder if there's a way and if not: I'd suggest it.

    Just use the WoWhead one, the news will be the same anyway.

It's amazing there are no other threads discussing the squish, as I'm confident you would have just posted in them if they did exist.

    As I said: it gets to my nerves lately, about 2/3rds of it is a promotion of their youtubers or unimportant articles like "here's what we think about a feature from 10 years ago that could come back in our opinion".

    Or at least there should be an alternative.

    There is not, but you can various Discord bots that process RSS feeds to consume https://www.mmo-champion.com/externa...s=120&count=10

    Then I believe a feature could improve massively your front page. Have a condensed version of the news that is visible to a human without having to scroll much.

    Right now it's impossible to see what news you posted in the past couple of weeks in a sequential manner without scrolling way too much.

    Sorry but it takes about 5 seconds to scroll down and see it all. I mean, sometimes we go a bit nuts with "convenience".

    No it doesn't. Their posts are often gigantic and you might have TO CLICK FOR THE NEXT PAGE before even the 3rd or 4th post is shown.

    And you can accuse people of being "nuts" all you want; others who condense their news don't listen to you; they are more popular.

    I mean, fair point. Others condense it and it can be nice for quick overviews. But I still don´t see the problem with this more traditional approach. I just went over their front news and it´s.. just fine.
    You can always check their Twitter I guess.

    It's excessively big (especially when they spam with a new patch' notes 3-4 pages of a regular browser). Just titles isn't great either. Those discord feeds that have a title and then a small image and then partial text: appear to be a good middle ground.
