We want to make this your source for news about technology, art, and science. We are the new kid on the block and are adapting quickly to satisfy our community's needs, as we look forward to exceeding your expectations and pushing boundaries like never before. Lastly, there will be no changes in format without a general consensus from the community. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the ride!

    "Now it just needs to be green!"

    Well, you know what they say about it not being easy.

      Didn't know the slashcott was extended, has this been previously publicized? Makes sense though. To be honest having a week away, I'm far more keen on posting here

        Pretty difficult to publicize since the Slashcotters aren't necessarily in one place, and of course there's not much way to get it visible over at /., but I've done my best to be a nuisance about it everywhere it was worth mentioning it.

    I agree. The red is kinda hard on the eyes. Maybe we could get something a little more toned down. Keep the candy bar though!

      "Maybe we could get something a little more toned down"

      The red is the DEFAULT theme for slashcode. The focus was on making everything WORK first, pretty later. But, it's in the works.

      I hope I can change this later...

        Of course. The SN team has done a fantastic job getting things shipshape. I'm looking forward to plenty of lively fun here. ^_^

        Is the D2 stuff part of Slashcode? Much as I like sites not needing JavaScript, it's annoying having the proliferation of tabs that is caused by 'reply' and 'more comments...' links opening new pages.

        Yes. We could tone it down a little and perhaps add a few things....

        However, let's be very careful going down that road lest we have our heads shoved up our asses and we try to knock off Ars Technica poorly and end up treating ourselves like an audience again ;)

        I'm just happy to keep this interface period. There was never anything else quite like the experience of posting on Slashdot, and thankfully now, SoylentNews.

      Replying to myself. Red is the color of the persistence of vision from green. This site can be said to be about the persistence of a vision.

      Seconded, easy on the eyes (at least on my screen).

        That's not "easy on the eyes". Easy on the eyes would be Natalie Portman.
