Right now, the feed is a beta thing. It only provides the text for the latest quotes. In some cases it is broken. In the future I plan on adding other features like a feed for every view, and some more HTML to the output to make things look pretty.
The anti-spam features are hidden to the users but are quite powerful. First the IP of the poster is checked against spamhaus’ DNSBL. If that doesn’t match, any URLs in the quote are then checked against that spamhaus. If both those fail, the quote is grepped for HTML and the IP is compared to the database. If the IP is already in the database, the quote is not spam. Otherwise it is. In my wordpress admin center I can easily delete all these spams with a single click.
Right now I’m going to sit back and hack away at KDE some more. In the meantime however, here are a few of my next Quiffle ideas:
- AJAX Voting
- (More) statistics (with graphs)
- Configurable options (I’ve had it in the source for ages, but I’ve never added a page to configure)
If you don’t know anything about Quiffle, sorry. I’ll have some page up in /labs/ for it soon. For now just understand that it is similar to QDB.us, but better.
