    Has the mod point system changed so you only get points every so often, rather than daily? Because I haven't gotten any mod points for the last few days. No big deal, just checking.

    Not intentionally changed. It is a bug (or feature!) that has been recognized (along with the front page listing of the recent journals). When some people were saying they lost mod points last week, I was still getting them, but now I've been without them for several days as well.

        I haven't seen any mod points since mid-last year. I thought it was a feature, not a bug. I hear that c0lo has the same issue. Might be a result of pushing back on the horse paste disinformation.

          Obvious butthole, as khallow would opine. Most recent front page:

          aristarchus is still out there. And, he is still dangerous! He will say things that make conservatives look stupid, and make janrinok look like a petty British tyrant, a Littlefinger, of sorts. I do believe the only way SN can be safe, is if it is shut down. Ides of December are upon us, you are months behind schedule, Lord janrinock.

            Aristarchus is still out there! I here he is the fentynel of the mind. All it takes is one small injection of sanity, and all your "common sense" conservatism (a la janrinok) and traditional racist shit balling (a la Runaway) will amount to naught. We need protection from facts and logic, and the mean liberals who pourvey reason and grounding in reality. Save us, janrinok! Keep the bad aristarchus away from solylentnudes, so we can talk about the Kanye West persecuting people!

              I am curious. Did this aristarchus character ever actually exist? Is it true he could shoot fireballs out his arse? Can anyone point me to any evidence of his existence? Or evidence of his crimes? Who did he dox? How did he dox them?

    My best guess is that slashd is having problems. Not being on the inside, I can't say for sure. But it would explain a lot of things, including the missing journals from the front page.

    I'm sure it is simply a supply chain issue that is causing a shortage of mod points. Just like shortages of everything else.

      They shouldn't have used those cheap Chinese mod points. They don't withstand any use. You really can use them only once.

        When the server is down for maintenance, replacement of vacuum tubes, belts, worn parts and lubrication of gears and bearings, it is possible to use those old mod points as ball bearings in the server's machinery.

              Within the North Pacific Gyre, there is a smaller, lesser known, SoylentNews mod point gyre. And speaking of gyres:

              Turning and turning in the widening gyre
              The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
              Are full of passionate intensity.

              By some Irish poet.

            Linux is very similar to eunuchs, but does not have any actual eunuchs code. It isn't "genetically" eunuchs. See SCO vs IBM which began March 6, 2003 and is about to reach its 20th anniversary. The litigation has picked up steam again and moved back to New York court.

      If mod points are still stuck in a box somewhere in China waiting to be delivered when will they arrive? Before Xmas? There's even a picture of the box on the news!
