All things considered, a pretty large update! I've got more to talk about, but check back past the break for that.
As I've stressed before, time and again, this site exists for the community, so if you've got some ideas, post them below, and let us hear about it!
On the business side of things, I'm working on drafting a "longer-term" plan, hopefully ready to present something this week, or early next week, which lays down a specific "here's what we are going to do" plan, and then let you guys think it over, poke it with a stick, then call me an idiot, and have me do it again; as far as running a site, its been a pretty successful model thus far :-)
Expect one or two more "meta" posts in the next few days, and until then, let me know your thoughts below
Random trivia: Black Icicle was going to be a much more black Darth Vader theme but I was getting tired and didn't feel like messing with it anymore. Also, check the latest blockquoting style proposal on dev as linked a comment or three below.
