    Hey Riho! We certainly haven't given up. We're actually doing another AMA tomorrow with @debbiemillman. Hope you all can come out and we can have another discussion!

    We've had Halli from Ueno and Dan Mall from Superfriendly over the past few months. These have been posted and pinned to the top of the feed.

    If you would like to have weekly discussion threads, please post it! Or reach out at if you'd like to kick off anything in a more systematic way.

    As always, we're happy to have the discussion -- if anyone wants to chat further about getting more involved, please email me!

      A simple change would keep me coming back to read more stories... target="_blank" -- Stop opening links within stories in the same damn window. When ever I click on a story from the feed it opens a new window (why?) but when I click a link inside a story, I've lost my anchor to the thread/comments. Not sure what the thinking is here, but flipping this UX would keep me more engaged.

      Also please make a button that mutes all of the negative elitist banter... or give them their own thread. In the 15 years I've been doing this, I've never seen the appeal of it.
