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!

    For some reason I'm unable to create one using the Create an Account link!

    try again, I've created a few already :) I had about a 50% success rate with various problems including 'invalid bare'. I was effectively using a fresh browser each time, so I'd recommend re-opening your browser or using a private-browsing tab or whatever (wild ass guess). Or just give the admins a few days to work the bugs out. I'm still itching to start submitting some stories, but that seems to need work as well.

      A bug has been raised for this issue in the critical bugs tracker. =detail&aid=72&group_id=6&atid=102/ []

      Keep in mind the devs have been working very hard just to get the site running, so it may take a little while for bugs to be fixed over the next couple of days. Please stand by :)

      Note: Anyone can register to post bugs to the tracker if you find any. But please quickly check the list of existing bugs to prevent reposting of duplicates if you do.
