Have you used Community Megaphone? If not, take a look. If you have, I’d love to get your feedback. What works? What doesn’t? How can I make it better and/or more useful?

    One feature that I think would make this site a lot more useful would be a configurable RSS feed.  It would be nice if I could subscribe to the following URL:

    http://www.communitymegaphone.com/mcc/Rss.aspx?zip=95405&maxmiles=30

    That way I could instantly be made aware of any events that are within what I consider to be an acceptable radius of my house.  (People in places like SF would be more likely to have a lower threshold for distance than people that live in the sticks like me 😉

    Regards,

    @Pat Gannon:

    I like that idea. I do already provide a filterable RSS feed, just not quite with the level of granularity you’re looking for. If you filter the events table on the main page by state or event type, a link appears to an RSS feed with the selected filters.

    Search/Feeds by zip code is definitely something that’s on my feature list, though.
