The LessWrong blog is by and large a "feed" of new reader-contributed articles of interest to the community, called "posts" (to emphasize the original content) or "threads" (to emphasize the discussion that most often stems from the posts). There are some threads which serve a special purpose, mostly recognized by tradition:

  • Welcome to LessWrong : introduce yourself here if you are new
  • Where we are : a hierarchically organized thread so we can locate each other geographically
  • Open Thread : this is posted monthly to collect "random" topics not deserving a post
  • Quotes Thread : this is posted monthly to collect quotes of interest
  • The Anti-Kibitzer script is a tool to avoid bias in your reading posts and comments
  • Issues and bugs : here is where to post a comment about improving the blog's underlying software
  • Here is some information about contributing to the LessWrong code base
