    site: Adding comments

    So, I’ve been busily hacking away at various and sundry parts of the site backend. New today: Comments on articles.

    Each article consists of one or more sections. I just pushed out an update that allows anyone to leave a comment on a particular section of an article. So, if you have a comment on a particular domain listed in the most recent article, it will be listed next to the relevant portion of the article.

    I have eventual plans to use the code that runs the article sections and apply it to things that are not article – say, a race writeup. This comment code will travel with it. As such, feedback is highly appreciated – send a mail to flip@athas.org with any comments on the comments.

    Wanted: Playtesters

    Athas.org seeks playtesters to evaluate material for projects in development. As a playtester you woill gain early access to new Dark Sun material. In return you will playtest the material, preferably with your gaming group, and provide us with feedback.

    Update: We have enough playtesters for the time being. If we need more, we will announce a new round of applications. Thanks to everyone who has volunteered.
