[13:05:24] <snowfire> ^✓ 03SoylentNews: Hall of Fame
[13:05:39] * Bytram notes it is actually at 1305 stories.
[13:42:21] <Bytram> hey gang!
[13:43:11] <Bytram> I quickly hacked together a story about our imminent 2-year anniversary and submitted it... sadly, won't be able to do anythjing more until I get back late tonight.
[13:43:32] * Bytram hopes someone can do something with it and get it posted.

[13:43:52] <Bytram> afk
[13:53:08] <Bytram> oh, almost forgot to mention... stories I seconded last night looked really good! All changes were minor and I was noting any changes here in case I made a mess of something -- it was late and I was very tired. Hopefully I didn't mess anything up too much!
[13:53:14] <Bytram> afk again
[14:25:02] <Bytram> other things to add to the anniv story: support for Stripe for subscriptions; admin to user msgs for not accepted stories; cat herder who keeps us all informed and working in a common direction
[14:25:09] <Bytram> I'm sure there's more, but I gtg
[14:25:14] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
[14:27:58] <takyon> just want to point out that Phys.org basically lifts the text for almost all articles elsewhere
[14:28:48] <takyon> so instead of "Also covered at Phys.org." It's more like Rutgers University
[14:29:04] <takyon> I have changed it

[17:39:03] <nick> what happened to the stories list...
[17:39:27] <cmn32480> what do you mean?
[17:40:08] <cmn32480> I suspect that you were looking at a Meta story (like the User to User messaging) and clicked on the stories list.
[17:40:26] <cmn32480> this takes you back to the story list fo rthe meta nexus
[17:40:32] <nick> the spacing between each item on the list
[17:40:44] <nick> i thought that at first
[17:41:17] <cmn32480> couple really long titles that don't fit on the screen and force the page to collapse?
[17:41:26] <nick> ah, yes
[17:41:28] <nick> that may be it
[17:41:44] <nick> yup
[17:41:48] <cmn32480> I jsut contacted the page and saw the pacing go all nuts

[17:57:09] <nick> ok so i saw it mentioned the other day, but what is going on with these 'thestack' submissions?
[17:57:27] <cmn32480> nfi
[17:57:59] <cmn32480> we have been putting them in hold, primarily because they point to another news agregation site and/or some guy's blog.
[17:58:12] <cmn32480> we've used some as fill-in material when the queue runs low.
[17:58:27] <cmn32480> as for if they ought to get deleted, I don't know.
[17:58:52] <nick> it's something to ponder
[18:00:19] <cmn32480> yeah
[18:00:27] <cmn32480> at tis point.. I'm not giving a crap.
[18:00:47] <cmn32480> I've got too much going on with the day job and kids to ponder it
[18:01:28] <nick> indeed
[18:01:56] <cmn32480> I am processing what is in the queue.. adn if needed dumping some in from Arthur.. but beyond that...
[18:02:35] <nick> is fair enough, can only do so much
[18:02:48] <cmn32480> that is the point where I is
[18:04:51] <nick> don't know if you read my journal, but im trying to figure out how to be more productive/active
[18:06:27] <nick> im at my desk for real now though, so i'll be able to work on the queue and ponder the finer points of editorial over the next couple weeks.
[18:11:21] <cmn32480> we await your ponderings
[18:12:24] <nick> i do it because i care ;)
[18:13:47] <nick> are you doing the skynet story or just lookin'?
[18:14:39] <cmn32480> looking
