Board Business, November 11th, 2012

If I have a plain text introduction will that stop me from messing up the widgets?

Irregular Business

Big discussions on the future of the board are going on here.  Seriously, if this is something you care about, you'll want to at the very least read what's being discussed, maybe make your voice heard.  Basically, this place was set up in a hurry because we needed a place to go fast, but it's looking like wordpress would be better in the long run.  If you have some problem with moving to wordpress you need to speak up soon.

Regular Business
Time to remind everyone about the weekend post.

Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in.  Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post.  Let me answer that: You do.  So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.

The sections of the post are as follows:
The Blogaround
Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.
In Case You Missed This
Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers.  These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.
Things You Can Do
Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.

Please email all submissions to said group email address (SlacktiverseAuthors at gmail dot com). The deadline this week will be 2000 GMT on Saturday.

Urgent or time-sensitive announcements will be posted immediately rather than being held for the next regular "This Weekend" post.  But you'll have to tell me they're urgent or time sensitive because it's liable to go right over my head if you don't.


Lastly, feel free to consider this an open thread.  Completely open, no prompt, say whatever you like.
