I figured it was time to write a newsletter of sorts for the site. I am going to shoot for releasing a newsletter every two weeks. If anyone would like to help with writing and maintaining it let me know.

In the very near future we will giving out variety of badges to highlight users who have made outstanding contributions to the community as a whole.
