About This Site
This is a place where you can read about, comment upon, and discuss things going on in the Haskell community. It is designed to be managed by the community, too.

To read, just browse around. To participate in most features of the site, you'll need to create a new account.

Once logged in, you can submit stories or items by using the create content button in the menu at the left. You have several options. Stories are submissions for the front page. They tend to be links to news, thoughtful essays, etc. Stories are reviewed by the community before being posted.

You can also submit a blog entry. Blog entries don't go to the front page, but are posted immediately.

The submission queue handles story submissions. Everyone with an account here can vote on stories. If a story gets enough positive votes, it is posted on the front page. If it gets too many negative votes, it is rejected. You can also check on the voting on your own stories there.

E-Mail Notifications
Want to get an e-mail when new stories are posted? Or even new comments? Just go to my account on the left, then click on the notify settings tab. You can enable or disable notifications for various events on the site.

The Submission Queue
Anyone with an account can access the submission queue. The queue is used to manage story and poll submissions. You can vote whether or not to post a story or poll in the queue. You can also see new submissions first there. You must be logged on to use the queue. A story is posted when its score reaches +4 or dumped when its score reaches -4.
