New unofficial MFC Facebook page

KeripoKeripo 2 years agoNews
Update 2016/09/30:
It seems the page was consistently getting suspended for posting NSFW pictures, so I've updated the RSS feed to filter those out. In the process, Reader's Selection was lost as dlvr.it reduced their free service to only one feed per channel. Oh well.

A long while back, MyFigureCollection.net used to have working RSS feeds, but they randomly disappeared one day. I poked around and found that there's official MFC Facebook and Twitter pages, but neither of them seem to follow any logical order in terms of posting content (old content and new content gets mixed in, rather than just the latest like you'd expect). It seems kumasan has plans for future updates, but in the meanwhile, I decided to experiment and make my own.

After messing around with Facebook apps and RSS feed generation, I managed to set up a new Facebook page that would post the only the latest content every day. Pictures of the Day are grabbed from a custom RSS feed created with Feed43 from the PoTD page using the filter rule:

onmouseout="javascript:tb_tooltip_reset();" href="{%}"><img style="{*}" src="http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/thumbnails/{*}"

The RSS feed is then auto-posted to the Facebook page using a free dlvr.it account.

Below is the result. Like/following it will lead to only the latest Pictures of the Day and Reader's Selection blog posts showing up in your Facebook feeds (rather than a random mix like on the official MFC page). Due to Facebook's new naming restrictions, I had to add spaces in the name :(

Hopefully kuma will have the new APIs ready one day and update the official Facebook/Twitter page posting scripts to only post the latest daily content. Til then, feel free to make use of this unofficial Facebook page...

Followed, thank for your hard work.
Would like to see something like this for Twitter as well since I'm more active there and info about latest figure news direct from companies/indie sculptor are mostly there :D

Keripo (2 years ago) #3108969That's actually just a bunch of useful links from my previous Japan trips (not planning on going this year, but will next year... that said, I'm still not done posting my last year's photos/blog posts... oops >_>). And links to some of my WIP shopping maps, like the one for Akihabara :3

I'll take a look at them, thanks! Someday I'll visit, just gotta find people to go with first.

Keripo (2 years ago) #3108955Oh the irony xD

I've changed the post frequency limit to 1 per half hour so that you won't get spammed and posts don't accidentally get dropped by Facebook (like yesterday's first PoTD post).

While I do have a FB/Twitter, I'm not one to really use them. I don't know how easy or difficult it was to set all that up, but I'm certain other users will appreciate it. However, I think you did a good job and should be commended for effort and commitment to MFC.

Thanks for the warning. I didn't know there was an official MFC facebook place, let alone this unofficial one.

Now I know to never contribute pictures or blog posts here, lest they be selected for inclusion on facebook, a place I hate very much and do not wish to be associated with in even the slightest of ways. (Of course, no photo of mine will ever have a chance of being so selected, but still.)

tomoko (2 years ago) #3108094I noticed that their twitter would post random unrelated stuff that had nothing to do with anything. So I guess that this is a good idea~
I don't really use Twitter but I can actually easily set up an unofficial Twitter that would mirror this Facebook page's posts if that is something that people are interested in.
