Biggest thing this week is tons of web traffic today due to links from high-traffic sites (13K visits so far today). We’ve got some graphs below.
For those (like me) who prefer using RSS to going to a webpage, we now have RSS feeds for the forum. At the top level, there is a feed of all new topics in all forums:
If only some topics are of interest to you, each forum has its own individual feed as well, which can be found on the page for the forum, for example:
As requested, there is now an RSS feed with the full text of each entry at http://seasteading.org/blog/feed/full, and the RSS links now point to it. (For technical reasons we made a new feed rather than modifying the existing one). This feed can be viewed on LJ as tsi_main_full. You can still find the old feed, with summaries only, at http://seasteading.org/blog/feed.
Some of the recent set of website changes, probably installing the GUI editor, seems to have broken the formatting of the site, specifically by removing paragraph tags. Sorry about that! I’ve fixed some of the pages by hand, but the rest will have to wait until our Drupal coder fixes the bug.
This website is less than a week old, so you should expect more hiccups like this as we continue to rapidly add features :).
- Lasse notes that the UC Boulder talks I gave in 2005 are up on Google Video, here’s a page with them embedded.
- I’m working on job descriptions for some paid staff and volunteers we’re looking for.
- Lots of small website bugs fixed. More still to come.
- Some more "user properties" have been added, you can click on your name on the upper right, then click Edit to fill them in.
Thanks for all the bug reports on website issues like broken links. Most of them have been fixed, except for users not being able to create new forum threads. Our programmer will fix that tonight, and for now I’ll start some threads. If you find more problems, please comment here.
UPDATE: I think I fixed the forums issue, let me know if you still have trouble.
As long promised, we’ve redesigned the website with forums, blogs, and more, as part of launching The Seasteading Institute. If you haven’t yet, you may want to read the introductory press release. Please poke around – you’ll see some familiar content from the old site, and some new pages to reflect the project’s more active status. Expect to see lots more over the coming weeks and months as we kick into high gear!
