Posting now enabled on Less Wrong

Posting is now enabled on Less Wrong, with a minimum karma required of 20 - that is, you must have gotten at least 20 upvotes on your comments in order to publish a post.  Or an adminstrator such as myself or Robin (by default you should bother me) can temporarily bless you with posting ability - in the long run this shouldn't happen much.

For those of you who haven't yet subscribed to / gotten in the habit of checking Less Wrong:

The five most recent LW posts now appear in OB's sidebar (and vice versa), but aside from this you shouldn't expect further regular summaries of LW on OB.


Comments sorted by top scores.

Ah, thank you, I did not see it. I missed it because it is not called "RSS", which is what I search for on a page if the visible link does not jump out at me. May I therefore suggest that in addition to making it more prominent (it really should be at the top of the page) your designer also add the name RSS to it instead of only "subscribe to this page"? Perhaps "subscribe to this RSS feed"?

There's an RSS feed, appearing in both my Firefox bar and below the "Top Contributors" sidebar. I'll forward your comment to the designers and tell them to make the RSS feed more prominent. Also linked to from my name.

Why is there no RSS feed on Less Wrong? I do all of my important reading through RSS as I suspect many do.

I'm not entirely sure of why we need two separate sites, either. Couldn't everything just be posted on LW?

How are you and Robin going to decide whether a post is more appropriate for Less Wrong or Overcoming Bias?

The link to "Teaching the Unteachable" is broken.
