We've decided to move Noir into 2008 and take our first tentative steps towards the social web.
You may or may not have noticed the "Recent Activity" box on the homepage. For now, that's just going to be a space for displaying Scripted Mysteries that people "Like". A loose rating mechanism that people have been asking for for awhile. Also, it's a way to give those mysteries a little more exposure to the outside world.
If this goes well, we'll add ways for people to like message board posts and agency pages as well.
Users are now given the option of liking an SM when they start it and when they end it. If you want to Like an SM that you've already completed, clicking on that mystery in the Case page now takes you to a detail page with more information about the mystery before actually starting it. Give it a try.

(If you all had Like buttons on your foreheads, we'd totally click on each and every one of them.)
