Okay, I've gone ahead and commissioned the planet, at:

http://planet.renai.us/

I've unscientifically seeded it by sticking in the blogs of people from the community that I had in my RSS reader. If people could post new RSS or Atom feeds for me to add, I'd appreciate. Also, if someone wants me to remove their feed, let me know.

Looking at the Planet source code, it doesn't seem to be able to filter based on post tags. It pulls all the posts from a given feed. So if you want a subset of your blog included, you'll need to set up a category or something else with its own feed.

We could really use a replacement for the default image on the upper-right.

The planet updates every 4 hours, or when I kick it off by hand.

My blog being there is kind of embarrassing, since I almost don't talk about VN related stuff at all ^^;

I could make a category out of my VN tag if you want to keep it there and nobody else complains against it.

Yeah, that could make sense. Like I said, I just went through my RSS reader and looked for people that had updated recently.

I have a VN label, but I know nothing about feeds.

Might not fit whatever style you're going for though, as I'm very informal.

Thanks, but Samu promises me that he'll make a reasonable logo in a short while.

I've also updated Deji's feed and added Papillion's, as requested.

I'm not sure how to post the right feed either (or if I can), but here is my OELVN category:
http://hinoyabu.wordpress.com/category/ ... al-novels/

I'll try and post some more interesting stuff there. Took a look at the planet, there's suddenly a lot more reading material now!

Done, although we only pick up posts from the last month.

The planet had 80 visitors yesterday, which isn't bad considering that we're only 2 days old. I just posted about it on the Ren'Py twitter feed, so hopefully we'll get some more people from that.

It's added, but posts won't show up if they're older than a month.

Well, here's another blog of an OELVN team: http://dischan.org/devblog/
Obviously I can't give you permission for anything regarding them, and I'm not going to ask them, because useless middlemen are useless. But having them on PEVN would save me another blog to check :P

Is there a feed specifically for Planet EVN?

I have several feeds from the ones listed already and if I can just subscribe to this one, it'll save me from seeing double posts.
