Where Did My PlanetNetBeans Blog Go?!
By seapegasus on May 16, 2008
Just mentioning it because a blogger asked: What does it mean if your blog has suddenly disappeared from planetnetbeans.org? Did you say something wrong, did we kick you out? No!
In 99.9% of the cases, your xml feed did not validate, and your blog was just temporarily excluded until the 'offending' xml has scrolled off (or until you find a way to fix the xml manually).
Usually blog feeds are auto-generated, so it's probably not your fault, ;-) but if you can fix the xml issue, please do so -- and you're automatically back on the planet in the next cycle.
If you wonder whether your blog is affected, check the PlanetNetBeans error log. Presently, there are only a handful of people on it, but it's good to know where to find this page if you wonder whether your feed validated or not:
See the long list of fellow NetBeans blogger's on the right hand side? The last item in the list says "Where's my blog?!" It'll take you to the Validating Incoming Feeds info page, from which you can always find the error log, and links to w3c approved validators. Happy blogging!
