Any way to set up a bot to pull highlights reel and announcements to G+ / FB?
And maybe scp.indiegames.us as well.

FB is more active, but G+ hasn't been updated since 2013

It seems silly that we'd have to post the same info across all platforms to keep up-to-date, a bot or software for this would be awesome.

Apparently the announcments are posted to HLP's Twitter using IFTTT. It should be possible to add FB and G+ to that mechanism.
We just need to find out who set that up...

IIRC, IFTTT can hook into RSS for it's thing, no? If so, I can definitely create an RSS feed that just has the highlights. Let me know.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I control the Twitter and yes, it's using IFTTT, iirc. It's been a loooong time since I set that up.
