Pass out the grog to the crew boys! this ship has left port!
Definitely brings up some memories. Cringed at the header though. Mystery meat navigation fail.
i'd like to contribute to soylent if possible.
i know some php/css/html/js/mysql but don't have to code new things... i'd be happy just to review some code to look for bugs etc
there's a bit of stuff about slashcode in the about etc but i had a bit of trouble there (404 on signup)
not a seasoned developer but have been on the tools for a few years. i'm new to open source contributions though... all my work so far has been locked up in the intellectual property dungeons of companies i've worked for
Here's to many years of a strong community.
(Ok, maybe this comment is mostly flag-planting before this gets too old, but hey)
Hear, hear! Just created my account.
Maybe I'm just blind, but can anyone tell me where the link / button is to post a comment without replying to an existing one? I can't find it for the life of me...
The Reply button, next to the Threshold line underneath the summary :)
So I was right...I am blind :D...thanks!
Former Slashdot(RIP) user here...I just want to give you guys a heads up about a cool Greasemonkey script which works on Soylent News:
Slashdot Expandable Comment Tree v2
Adds [+][-] symbols next to all comments allowing you to expand and collapse any of them for viewing. The script is here-----http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/38184 [userscripts.org]
To modify the script to work on SoylentNews:
Open the script in a text editor, and add this line: // @include http*://*soylentnews.org/*
Does this still work? I love the idea but it doesn't appear to be functional...
Thanks for setting this up - looking good.
Thanks for all the hard work.
I hereby declare 2014 the Year of Soylent!
I just subscribed to the RSS feed.. the headlines work but at least with the Netvibes newsreader I see no story text.
Feels just like the old home should. Thanks to everyone who put this together.
Thanks for making this happen. Cheers.
This reminds me of back when I first got onto Slashdot -- love it! Will definitely be more active here than on the Dice site. (Makes me sad to say that since it was an online home for so long, but I feel like I'm being run out of the neighborhood by the corporate steamrollers.)
Tight, focused, future looking bright.
So, as your friendly English editor - here's a quick tweak:
"Now obviously, plans can change, and if you've got a better idea, we want to hear it below. Until then, keep submitting you're scopes, and we'll hopefully have an update in a couple of days."
Did you mean: "... submitting YOUR scopes ..."
Darn, I was just about to point out the same thing :-)
Site looks good, looking forward to being part of the community!
Just adding my kudos, and a sincere thank you for not relying on JS for all but the most trivial aspects of the site. It's delightfully refreshing not to have a new site collapse upon itself with NoScript [noscript.net] turned on.
I'll likely be a lurker as I was on The Dice Site, but great to be here.
I just heard about - and signed up to - this site. Looks good so far.
A question, though. What is the reason for this site? I'm sure everyone has something they don't like about the other site, but what is the specific reason(s) for this one? Is there a statement about this somewhere which I'm missing. There's so much to choose from!
Thanks for all the work
