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!

    Anyone know of a way to turn on the feature from Slashdot where you click on a comment and it auto-loads?

    This feature was not part of the SlashCode used for this site. Those features are on the list for future enhancements.

      Can we at least have it show all comments at once? Right now it mostly shows only root comments of trees even when I have the threshold set at -1. Kind of painful to open each comment separately. :)

        Try setting it to 'nested' instead of 'threaded', and save it as your default view.
