It would be good if we had a page listing Books Received, with the same basic info as on the old site. (Name, Author, Publisher, Page Length, Date.) Perhaps this could be like a public version of the spot described in the "Issues" entry just below this one (perhaps they could be integrated in some way?). I think the idea would be that the M.E. could periodically refer to this page in their public announcements: if you are interested in reviewing a book for EBR, please see here, etc.
Create a page where editors (contributors too?) could suggest titles for review and add a few notes. The assoc. editors could refer to this when requesting titles from publishers and making assignments and the thread editors could consult when soliciting articles from contributors.
Right now, to add a gloss, you need to click "Content">"Add Content">"Gloss," and you are taken to a separate screen. Is there a way that an icon can be placed within the text itself, that the reader can click on and go straight into adding a gloss? It's easy to forget the title of the essay once you wind up on the "Create Gloss" screen, which means you have to close that screen and start over. The separateness is also problematic when it comes to editing the gloss, because you have to sort of hunt for it in the Content list.
The link the the pdf chapter from Wendy Chun's book is not working. This is linked in both Critical Code Studies Week 4 (live) and Critical Code Studies Week 5 (currently being edited). I thought I would post this here because I'm not sure if the link is no longer accurate in terms of the file location or if this is a file type that was not transferred to the new website.
Don't know if this is intentional or not, but you can't create a new account because there is no CAPTCHA question. It just says:

I just tried to test this by creating a new user (RMB) to whom I assigned a "reviewer" status. However, even as "reviewer," this user cannot see any content but what is published, so they can't contribute "reviews" of any texts, even those in the Under Review stage. Before this is fixed, I can't really tell whether the problems below are fixed. Thx - Ryan
Please test. Thx.
Can you make blurbs invisible to peer reviewers, in addition to the author field?
