Is someone breaking the rules and using Fark as their personal erotica site? Is Subby drunk at the keyboard and saying "then" in a greenlit headline when clearly it should say "than"? Is the link broken or trying to malware all over your computer? You can report all these problems and more with the "Notify moderators about this thread" and "Notify admins about this link" links at the end of each comments thread. Offer valid while supplies last, void where prohibited, your mileage may vary, may cause anal leakage.

Aw, hell naw, it's the first edition of the Fark newsletter

Welcome to the quick-and-dirty introductory edition of Fark's newsletter. Each week, we'll bring you a review of some of the more noteworthy things that happened on Fark, including a selection of popular threads and top-voted comments from the previous seven days. We'll also include some other crap such as updates on new features and Fark event news.
Topics and Comments
During the past week, Fark had a lot of discussion about ebola, ISIS, the update to Fark's posting rules, and the events in Ferguson, Missouri. Across Fark and TotalFark, the word "Ferguson" was in 2,159 comments, "ISIS" was mentioned in 874, "misogyny" was in 1,344 comments, "ebola" was in 392, and "Obama" was mentioned 1,443 times. For comparison purposes, "subby" was in 1,341 posts, "Simpsons" was in 204 comments, and "pineapple" was mentioned 30 times. The thread announcing the update to Fark policy was the most commented thread of the week, also bringing in the top-voted comments with Drew's announcement getting the most "smart" votes and Large Marge sent me's explanation of why sexism is wrong getting the most "funny" votes. Fark's anti-misogyny stance generated a lot of publicity for Fark, with 14 articles being greenlit on the topic. This brought on some complaints from Farkers who apparently never noticed Fark's publicity page before or the fact that it's been around for a long time. Even with all of those greenlit articles about Fark, though, there were still more than twice as many greenlit threads about Ferguson.
It turns out that a lot of Farkers are mystified by the uncanny ability that some other Farkers have for knowing when they've been mentioned in a thread. These Farkers probably aren't psychic, they just have enabled email notifications in their MyFark Notifications tab to let them know when their user name has been posted. Not only can you turn those notifications on there, but you can also update your email address and subscribe to get emails when Fark newsletters are posted, when your submissions are greenlit, when comments have been posted in threads after you've posted, when a Fark party is planned in your area, and when there are Fark News Flashes. You can also turn these notifications off in the same place.
So, that's our first newsletter. Future editions will likely be longer after we see how this one goes. We have a lot more things planned for future editions, and we also welcome suggestions. We're well aware that Farkers love to hate new things, but before you comment, please remember that actual human beings worked to bring this newsletter to you. Our livers can only handle to much medicinal vodak.
