It’s the new year! And it’s time for a quick reminder: This Observation Deck is for science, SFF, and other related things to those topics, as well as a few other community things like CAH and “what are we drinking” posts. It’s not for stuff that is not that. Other Kinjas are for that. Not this one.

I know this because you had to hang around for awhile before we let you become an author. Perhaps you think you are the adorable exception. Spoiler alert: You are not. If you think posting something deliberately off-topic and saying oh-so-clever things like “I know it isn’t quite on topic but...” or “We’ll let the mods decide if...” or “Well, I saw someone else do it so...” is acceptable, I must reiterate this point: It is not!

So knock it off, please! Let’s begin 2016 correctly.
