Hi folks.

Performance reasons mandated a change to the user nodes xml ticker. Users with many posts were causing undue load on the DB server so we had to change it. The changes are as follows:

Its well known to the gods that the primary existing use of the user nodes ticker is to monitor reputation changes in the users posted nodes. We would prefer that people stop doing this, as it requires fetching an awful lot of nodes. In order to get people to stop doing this we have created the noderep xml ticker which is designed to provide data on only those nodes that have changed since the last fetch. Please read the following list to see how it works:

So now all you XP whores can use the ticker to watch your nodereps in something close to real time. Enjoy. ;-)
