First off…

SRPR now has a blog. This is our community and announcement space. We will use our Facebook and Twitter accounts primarily to send out updates about upcoming events, contests and issues. But we realize that sometimes we’ll have more to say than what FB and Twitter message boards can accommodate. Hence, this blog.

Oh, we’re going live with our new website on November 30. Find us there, and occasionally here.
