Like the way you're progressing. Thanks for getting things working without Javascript, that was very important for me.

I think my feature wish-list is now practically empty - don't get too bloaty!

I would still like to see a notification if/when someone replies to one of my comments, but otherwise I agree. I think this is a great replacement for slashcode, which is a horrible monster, all we're missing here is the community.

It would be nice if Bryan would put his efforts up on Github and allow some collaboration, but it's his baby and I can't blame him if he wants to keep it to himself.

Yeah, I hear ya on the lack of community. Even if Bryan does put it up on github, I wouldn't be surprised if others don't pick it up. The soynuts have already put a lot of effort into reviving slashcode, I doubt they would give it up at this point to pursue putting their features into pipecode. In any case, I'd wait until the code was in a good state to show to people after dogfooding it here.

I signed on at Soylent reasonably early. Honestly, I like this place more. No, the community isn't here, yet, but it will come. I found the politicking over there to be rather distasteful. Moreso than anything Dice ever did at The Other Site.

I wish I had the skills to help out here, but I really, really don't. I'll have to settle for sitting back and enjoying the ride.

The community is (probably) watching, I find myself here more often than in the beginning but I still only have a look every couple of days. As more features get implemented it gets more attractive to use.

Notifications on a reply are quite important; much more than "search", what the last poll here said. One thing that this site already does better than soylent is the fact that there is some equivalent of firehose.
