I read this and started to tear up... http://tech.slashdot.org/comme...
OK Beta Sucks... Where will we go?
This is Slashdot Damn it!!! We are not a web site, we are a community that thrives off of the unique moderation system put in place years ago.
I know for years, I have asked people who I suspected.. " Do you read Slashdot?" And if they said regularyly, I could be assured of thier being informed on
"News for NERDs & STUFF THAT MATTERS"
I learned about GOOGLE on SLASHDOT back in
As a group we can collectively move. The slashdot code was published years ago.
What is the new URL?
I am not a coder but will be more than willing to help the group move forward away from this BS.
Do we start a kick starter for hosting funds?
Who will moderate submissions?
Who will administer the site?
I can't do everything to make this happen, but I will be more then willing to contribute as much as I can.
If wikipedia can exist for all these years as a non-profit then I am sure the Slashdot community can figure out how to exist free from profit motives that make things suck.
BTY - I never read slashdot on a mobile device, because it sucks! Where was the protest then?
