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!

    "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.

    Technically, lunchtime is at any moment. It's just a wave function.
