Sup everybody, just a hello and a reminder that we're in the process of putting together the annual Fark Headline of the Year contest, using Headlines of the Week from January 1, 2010 through today. The voting threads for January and February have already gone to TFD, and the first quarterly thread for Headlines of the Year will go live this Friday around noon EST. A lot of really phenomenal headlines in there that you may have missed earlier this year.
In the past, I know that some people who come to Fark for the first time take one look at the main page and don't really understand what they're looking at. They only see headlines and not every headline is as great as these.
This is my favorite contest of the year, so feel free to share the mainpage links when they go live, I'd love to see us blow up Facetube and Twitter this year.
