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!

    Now the issues:

    No quote button
    No background in the about page. Who started the site and why?

    Ok, why is fairly obvious to those from The Original Place, but won't be in a years time.

    And a button to quote would be very useful when posting from a padd.

        Given this [soylent.me], I don't think that comparison proves anything with regards to SN.

          Well, quoting from the page you linked, it seems this site name is more appropriate than I at first realised:

          What the early adopters are saying:

                  "The cognitive effects are extremely noticeable, in fact the most noticeable for me."

                  "So far I've noticed a lot of what you all have been mentioning: healthier skin, less fatigue, focus even with less sleep."

                  "My mood experience! It has improved a lot lately. And by a lot, I mean A LOT."

                  "The time and money saved is making me really happy. Especially the time."
