Sweet! Will look forward to contributing more actively in the future! There really should be a way to track updates and comments on individual articles though, in addition to tracking member updates. There is SO much content, from the staff AND other members, it can get quite hard to keep track of all the articles you want to. Of course, that is why the Soapbox, weekly community updates and other such things exist, but the net could get wider! Although it is strange, and even awesome :D, that a good amount of quality content could be a PROBLEM of any sort!
