Unfortunately, the BBC service in macedonian language was closed (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12277413) and the rss is not updated any longer.

Consulting the community here, we've decided it's best to switch to the Deutche Welle service. They also have their service in macedonian, and are fairly balanced.

The RSS link is:

Milos, can you help drive this? Despite the fact that we're not adding more profiles to use this, we should convert this for existing users.

Damjan, Novica, do you have contacts with whom we could talk about our planned usage of them?

Axel, assuming that you mean we need a contact from DW news, I sent couple of emails to journalist to get the name/contact of the editor.

This is the e-mail of the editorial board of DW for Macedonia: macedoni@dw-world.de

Novica,

Mind sending an email to the owner of the website saying that we'd like their permission to change default RSS to their RSS feeds. Might be cool to mention it's not highly likely that they'll have any bandwidth probs given the number of users we'll drive to them shouldn't be that scary.

Axel,

Do we need to add something else to that email?

Novica,

also, once you get a permission to use their feeds, please forward that email to me and we can proceed.

Email forwarded to Milos. The news-site is Radio Free Europe.

Novica,

redirect is in place, and I've just tested it. What I'm concerned about, though, is that I don't really see a relation between the RSE(radio slobodna evropa) and Deutche Welle(we got permission from former, but redirect to latter's service).

Mind elaborating a bit?

Milos, 

I never received any feedback from Deutche Welle. 

So, in order to finally fix this I contacted the other remaining balanced news source that publishes in Macedonian - that is Radio Free Europe.
Novica,

but you didn't give us the new URL for feeds, and we created a redirect to Deutche Welle. Can you provide us with the new feed url?
