Welcome

This site is made possible by (and for) the insightful community of users. This team supports that community in various, ever-changing ways.

There are many ways to participate in this project. Of course, submitting stories or commenting on them is the most obvious way to get involved. You can also submit ideas for new projects in Suggestions, or bugs and "feature requests" on the bug tracker on github.

If you'd like to get more closely involved by working with a team, you should contact them directly. Start at the WhosWho or Team Pages. For example the Development Team can always use perl experience, and the Editors team are looking to expand their time zone coverage. If you have any questions or are not sure where to start you can send an email to suggestions (at) soylentnews.org.
