    I noticed this a while ago when I went to post a story. Mostly, it's rather nice, but I do miss one feature:

    Can it be made so that my link points to something other than my email address? I used to change it on every submission to point to my website, and actually I'd like to set that as the default.

    Was there a reason that choice was removed, or was it an unintended effect/feature without priority?

    The one thing that I miss in the new submission system is the list of Accepted, Rejected, and Pending stories after a submission is made.

    Can we get the list of Accepted, Rejected, and Pending stories back?

    Otherwise the new system is fine although I didn't know how to go about submitting a story under a different name or how to add a link to a web site instead of an email address until I read the post above by eldavojohn.

    You may want to add that information to your FAQ.

    Given the meta-topic... I'll ask this here:

    Ever since Slashdot went to the "2.0" (was it?) interface where you can ajax collapse or expand posts within the normal page... I haven't ever gotten mod points.

    I have "Willing to Moderate" checked, and "Good karma", but I haven't received mod points for a long long time.

VMS must die!
