    I'm working on a platform to convert any website's rss feed into a full rss feed.

    It's going to be offered on a monthly subscription to help cover server costs and because at least i feel it's a rocking idea especially for those people that wan't to do really complete autoblogs.

    Right now I'm gauging if i should just keep it to myself or offer it open to everyone for a subscription as i said ....

    Would you guys be interested in something like this if it was say
    $10 a month and you get 4 RSS feeds, and then say 1$ per additional rss feed, I'm still playing with the traffic but what i might do is have 2 tiers, say those 4 rss feeds and the 1$ additional feeds would be updated every 30 minutes, and for say half that price you could get them updated every 2 hours...

    As i said right now i'm just gauging interested, the script is done and actually if theirs a few people that want to beta test it just send me a PM with the site your interested in the feed for and i'll see about adding you to the beta and getting you a test feed to try out for a week or so.

    But overall i want to know if this would be something you would be willing to pay for and if the pricing above you'd see as logical, remember it's an RSS feed so those 4/5 feeds could be reused on 10 autoblogs or 100 autoblogs it doesnt matter to me (though i will be monitoring usage (ips etc) to make sure that Person A isn't giving it out or reselling it to hundreds of people.

    I am also interested to know if someone would pay for this kind of service.

    There are options out there to get full-text for free, but many are unreliable because they only work with some feeds. If your service worked with all feeds, I'd be willing to pay $2 per feed for up to 5 feeds, provided you could guarantee that things were working properly.
