A General request

This doesn’t affect the gamestate, but I was wondering whether we could have a section in the sidebar to have ‘Open’ story posts, specifically Eureka posts. I noticed this in the last dynasty with the Sticky Bomb posts, but I find myself constantly trawling down the page to find out if I’ve missed people’s comments, which aren’t proposals, CfJs or DoVs. If we had a neat little page which includes any other matters which are still open for discussion (maybe disappearing from this list a week after the last comment if they’re open-ended), that would save us doing this. If it’s just me then don’t worry, it’s just a suggestion.

I’m not familiar enough with ExpressionEngine to know offhand how easily we could add custom lists, but if you’re using Firefox or Chrome, it sounds like you’d find the Track New Comments Greasemonkey plugin useful - it saves you having to trawl through checking for new comments, by listing them at the top of the front page.

Another trivial request:
I’d like to have a link to the Floating Rubbish on the front page… Thanks :)

I echo Ely’s request. The extension sounds good. Apparently it’s installed, so I’ll see what happens with it.

Link added.

Do I have to do anything special to get the extension to work? It says it’s installed, but I don’t see any difference.

You should get a series of numbers appearing at the top of the front page, under the title graphic. Have you definitely got Greasemonkey switched on?
