#We always announce upcoming articles on dot-editors and put theinfo about the article (time to be published, reviewer) on top of the article

#We are kind of informal - a little joke should be possible. But the dot is professional enough not to use the term hacker but developer instead. (tricky rule, this one, it's about balance I'd say. I wouldn't want the dot to get boring but it should be kind of decent still)
