Greetings Soylentils! And welcome to SoylentNews!

We are here to deliver the best community-sourced news, catered for all manner of nerd! Because this is a grassroots based platform, the content feeds are powered by readers like you. Our main objective is to highlight news stories on the web that are of importance to everyone, but especially nerds. In addition, SoylentNews will strive to go beyond simple news-aggregation, with some core principles:
  • Providing a soapbox for experts to discuss their profession and solicit questions from a curious audience.
  • Allowing the community to comment, without any mandatory registration.
  • Staying mindful of the community's needs and wants while avoiding changes to satisfy an overarching corporate agenda.

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!

    When I click on "Submit Story" though, I get an info box with "Your recent submissions" which is of course empty. And that's it. Not that I had anything to submit just yet :)

    The mix of posted stories is going to be important, that'll be the character of the site and it'll help establish the base of regulars. There's obviously a lot of different directions you could take it.

    mod parent up, and perhaps post a story on where bugs should go. I psychotically refused to register to the forums because of the anti-'hateful' terms of service, but digressing from that, now that the site is live, it's no longer obvious how to get to the wiki or the forums.

    I was chatting on the IRC channel (either ##altslashdot @ or ##SlashTest, same host) earlier and this was pointed out to me. Bugs should be reported here: [] (Yes, it was reported). Forums are still at []. Wiki seems to be having DNS issues at the moment, but our dev team is taking a well deserved break from things for a few hours. I promise they will get right on it shortly. We are going to work on providing a better interface for all the options for community interaction. Thanks for the feedback!
