We've added the new "Wild West" forum here, if you would like access feel free to shoot me a PM. Remember, this forum is visible by all ODN members, but has a far more relaxed rule set than the rest of ODN. Aside from flaming and plagiarism, this is pretty close to the chat box rules. Moderation will be light and I hope you all enjoy the more open structure.
The Peers will also be electing members over the next few days. If you would like to be considered for membership in that group send me a message and I'll put your name in the hat. We will eventually settle on a consensus group from all the nominated members and from that point on the Peers will manage their own membership. Peers currently have neg rep capability and we'll be expanding their role going forward.
Please feel free to ask any questions or express concerns about these groups.
