So, neOdeck is online now, i.e. it's out of beta testing. What this means for the io9ers is that it's open to the public. Of course, since erryone that got a beta invite kinda told erryone else...

Welp, essentially there's a few things:

1. There are authors that can post onto the odeck freely.

2. Everyone can comment on every post.

3. Not everyone can post on the ODeck.

Put down the pitchforks, hold on.

Every day we're putting up an Open Forum Post so everyone can discuss business as usual. We hope that this new format will prevent another souptastrophe, and I can tell you all right now that I have lost a few years because of that jackhole.

I'm also going to be putting up a HOLY SHIT, BUGS post every day so people can post Kinja 1.0 grievances. Please be original in your griping.
