There are a few different people responsible for the site. mk is the overlord. insomniasexx and sounds_sound do a lot of the coding and look. thenewgreen is sort of the Jobs to mk's Woz.

A tag is something you can assign to your post that isn't changeable by anyone else. The community tag can be overwritten by others, as I just did with yours. Tags are a work in progress, and a contentious one as they aren't quite providing the functionality that mk wishes they did.

Welcome. If you look at the bottom of this page you will see a link that says "tutorial." You should watch it.

Not sounds_sound, forwardslash. :) He does the heavy lifting these days.

Thanks for the detailed reply!

What does it mean when there is a ".username" at the end of the tag?

It is so that a person may follow a specific person's use of a tag. The username is automatically put at the end of a tag used in posting. Hello, by the way.

and isn't b_b on the management team? I see his job as making sure there's no bad science posted. or wait - that's your job.

no wait, that's everyone's job.

I gave that up after realizing that I have no viable skills, very little vision, a lack of enthusiasm, and I tend to fall asleep quickly when bored.

As the one non coder on the team, I really miss having you on the call. You have many talents, not the least of which is being incredibly cynical in regards to new ideas, something that served us well. There were many times when the phrase, "that's a fucking horrible idea" or, "that's fucking stupid," edit: or the best "if people are too dumb to understand "x" then fuck em" came out of your mouth and the site is better for it. My hope is that you are still providing such feedback to mk, just at work and not on the call.

You coming to nc for that wings game or not?
