The 4/1 joke this year is on me. Working from home apparently doesn't get you out of working on your home, or in this case a church destined to shortly be my home. Which is what kept me from having time to annoy you lot with a terrible/goofy/whatever theme or some other silliness this year. Enjoy your lazy Wednesday and feel free to have a chuckle at my expense.

Side note: there are only sixty-one four-digit uids left at the time of this writing (the morning of 3/31) . Any of you long time ACs who think you might want to register before we hit five digits need to do it soon.

    Agreed. That and other things nudged me toward remaining a quiet AC over there.

    While I remember (and took part in) the Great F*** Beta Slashcott, I didn't hear about this place until months later, when some kind soul came back to the Green Site to tell us that the grass was even greener here at SoylentNews, hence my fairly high UID.

    That is similar to how I found SN. Some blessed person ventured back to the green site to point to a better way.

      Who was that person? I imagine they are still here, somewhere.

      So I looked over there for Soylent shills, and found some stories from 2014 where comments directed people here. The user names were

      • mx_mx_mx ( 1625481 )
      • demonlapin ( 527802 )
      • kumanopuusan ( 698669 ) - well, not this guy, but he did mention it with a deceptive link
      • Anonymous Coward

      Well, now that I think about it, I've seen that last one here quite regularly...

        I don't remember who it was. So long ago.

          Same here. It's been so long since "beta" that all I remember is how badly that went. I have no idea when I saw the link to this place, nor who posted it.

          This place has been better than the last five years of the green site. I've only been back once and that was due to a link in someone's journal that I didn't look at the destination before clicking.
