Comment Drualcon L.A. (Score 1) 131

If by chance you're using Drupal, I'd suggest Drupalcon in L.A. next year. You can view year's videos, which may give you an idea about the conference, or save you a trip. While mostly focused on the topic, I brought back a lot of non-Drupal info. There were lots of folks representing the .edu space.

Submission + - SPAM: The best gluten-free recipes

An anonymous reader writes: I’m gonna give you my best and favorite gluten-free recipes, make sure to follow me step by step so you can enjoy the magnificence of what you're about to taste. I know that sometimes it’s not so easy to find the all the exact ingredients of the recipes, in case it also happens to you, you can always look for alternatives of ingredients relative to the one shown in the recipe. Trust me, there’s more alternative options than you think.

Anyways, I really hope you enjoy the meals I’m gonna show you. Another section here that I would be grateful when you read it, is the section of my story, I will quickly share with you my story of how I got here and how my Celiac disease lifestyle got so much better after I found what I call my golden nugget. Which is the information that improved my gluten intolerant way of life. Yeah, that’s why I’m saying you’re lucky to read this, if I could I would just hug you of the happy I am to share this with you.

By sharing my golden nugget I’m at once also giving you many important recommendations that any gluten-free guidelines should have. So please take the time to read my post, I enjoyed writing it thinking that it might help anyone who is in the situation that I was.

Community users in the forum reacted whit enragement and indignation after the official statement.

Submission + - Slashdot users give new beta design a huge Bronx cheer 2

Presto Vivace writes: Alice Marshall reports that:

Slashdot users are extremely unhappy with the new Slashdot Beta design. The comment section of every single post is devoted to dissatisfaction with the new design. ... ... The thing to keep in mind about community sites devoted to user generated content is that the users generate the content.

Submission + - Fuck beta 1

An anonymous reader writes: The beta is bad. It's so bad. The comments are reduced in screen width about 50%. Subject lines are deemphasized, scores are minimized, etc.

The discussions are the reason to come to Slashdot, and the beta trivializes them entirely. It looks like the comment section on a generic news site.

The comments now look like an afterthought, whereas they used to be the primary focus of the site.

Submission + - Boycott Beta 2

An anonymous reader writes: On February 5, 2014, Slashdot announced through a javascript popup that they are starting to "move in to" the new Slashdot Beta design.

Slashdot Beta is a trend-following attempt to give Slashdot a fresh look, an approach that has led to less space for text and an abandonment of the traditional Slashdot look. Much worse than that, Slashdot Beta fundamentally breaks the classic Slashdot discussion and moderation system.

If you haven't seen Slashdot Beta already, open this in a new tab. After seeing that, click here to return to classic Slashdot.

We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott

Moderators — only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors — only discuss Beta

Keep this up for a few days and we may finally get the PHBs attention.
