Stories are submitted
by you, the reader, and are chosen based on their perceived interest level,
timeliness, and relevance to the CFD industry. Once posted, each story
becomes a forum where readers can comment on the story
(or other comments). Comments are moderated by the editors in
an effort to maintain an effective, cordial discussion.
To get started, create a user account, log in, and then contribute
a story or reply to a story with your comments.
Logging in with a user account gives your posts a
slightly better chance of appearing. This works on the theory
that if a post is linked to your name, you will provide a better,
more thought-out, comment. It also lets us give people who
consistently provide insightful comments a louder voice
(the opposite is also true).
You should read the excellent
FAQ on Slashdot.

but you can link to individual stories as well. To post a link
along with the CFD Review logo, just include the HTML text below

Sure do, check out the headline feeds page.
The story listings on the main page are actually just introduction
points to further reading and/or discussion on the subject. Longer
stories will have a body which is linked by the "Read Full Article" tag.
Also, each story is a discussion forum where you can read
others comments and post your own. The "Post Comment" tag links to
a form where you can post a comment on the story. The number of
user comments associated with a story appear below the story listing.
Below is a typical story listing which has been annotated with
descriptions of the various features.
