    Great work on the site. It looks wonderful.

    An idea: I think Soylent should bring back the Original slashdot article icons, such as the Bill Gates Borg and the Broken Window and so on, rather than the clipart versions that Slashdot uses.

    I hope, and I suggest that it be made the sites mission statement, to remain true and adhere to Slashdot's classic format. As I have said previously, if it ain't broke don't fix it. The traditional slashcode format is perfect. They were talking about trying to add functionality back into the beta at Slashdot, but if they add back the functionality of classic slashdot to the point where its a good site again, basically end up with what they start with, classic slashdot, so why even mess with in the first place? Change for the sake of change has killed slashdot, messing with something that had absolutely nothing wrong with it and was working well.

    I suggest Lets keep this the classic slashcode format.
