Although right now you cannot use your Retro account to comment or write stories, you should be able to within the next few weeks—we have the capacity do so, but the server crashed the last time it was attempted. The bugs are being worked out though.
With the launch of the front page, we're also looking for Site Staff, who would be the front page equivelant of a Sysop. If you're interested in writing up the news, giving reviews, posting WELL-WRITTEN editorials or just want to shoot the shit about cool stuff and can commit to writing at least 4-5 pieces a month, send me a PM with what you would like to write and an example of your past writing.
Approved writers will get this sexy blue badge:
We hope you'll enjoy the stories we'll be bringing from here on out and will be happy to have another way to reach out to the Sonic community at large.
