Week 3 With The Slash Code, or is it week 4?

Busy Week!

Job #1 right now is to figure out why the same stories keep coming up on the metamod page.
I need to make a better page that lists the RSS feeds I think.
I'll be sending out a request for editors soon I hope, each editor will get a section.
Still need to write up the XB email.
I think the older stories might still need a bit of help. A search by topic fails for some reason.
The old polls and comments are still lost in the old Db.
The mailing lists are still seperated.
Still need to kill the edit link.
Categories for the vars? How I'd do that remains to be seen.
Figure out the contact us thing.
Can I have a form to allow people to contact other people?

Need to do the ENT feeds for Shifty, and the RSS to email thing for Stuffy.

Stats? The numbers are still lower than a couple months ago, but maybe it's just that time of the year?
I've bump started the moderation by giving everyone who has posted a comment points.
The old quotes are now working! Damn that was a pain.
docs are updated nicely, the FAQ, authors help file, and Moderation FAQ have been rewritten.
Hits display on the stories. It doesn't seem to be at all accurate... but it's better than nothing.
The User List is much improved.
Most 404's have been fixed.
Killed relocate.
Added links and # of user accounts to login for me.
The RSS Leaks have all been plugged now I think. No more sneak peaks!
I figured out to edit just section templates.
I rewrote the About Us Page.
There's now a contact us form. I should've just done it that way to begin with, until I figure out how to make a new "real" one.
Cleaned up the duplicate topics.
Adding links to each section.
Added links to all the current feeds, and added a couple new feeds.
Fixed the stats page, I think all us authors should be able to see it.

Overall, things are still ok. Some days I just want to do "rm -rf *" but it's coming along. I am slowly, very slowly beginning to understand the code. I hope with the moderation points scattered about we'll see more people participating.

Less than 2 months left till I get married.

Getting hitched...

Mazeltov.

But with the distributed architecture of LISNews, will you be able to do the "Takin' a break and getting hitched" posting that I've seen a number of times on copyright and library weblogs this summer?

Or will LISNews soldier on without you?

Re:Getting hitched...

Plans are being laid to ensure there are no "Takin' a break and getting hitched" messages. The server will be well taken care of, as for LISNews, there's all you authors that can pick up the slack (hopefully) and (hopefully) I'll have a laptop with me in the hotel in HI, so I'll still be connected.My goal is to have LISNews soldier on without me every day!
