As of today, it's only a few weeks until we start the Headline of the Year contest. Just put up the voting thread for October (TF only), so we're basically caught up as far as mainpage headlines go.
Now I'm working on the subtabs for Sports, Geek, Entertainment, Politics and Business and will try to get those up and out pretty quick. And thanks to the farkers that have gone through to pluck those nominees from previous Headline of the Week threads. It's appreciated, and it's why this year is the first one in which we're actually ahead, if you can believe that.
So that's the basic update. Enjoy.
