Despite the fun antics of the "shit man," this is a somewhat related issue. Registration will be getting a code upgrade this week and so while I work on it I needed to disable it. This means that no new members until the weekend will make it in... Those with UTTERLY URGENT need to register should email me.
The registration process will remain basically the same, but accounts will now need to be approved by staff before an email with the password is sent out. This screening process will help me cut down on broken emails, bad usernames, username errors, etc which I currently deal with through emails. It will also be an additional roadblock for spammers and troublemakers who simply run to hotmail or yahoo for a free address to continue their rants. (The "shit man" clause!) There should not be a significant delay once the tool is active as it will be VERY simple and quick to use...
Along with this there's a few upgrades in the works which I DIDNT mention previously which may or may not make it in. (90% of my dev takes place at home, on occasion I find time to work on new additions remotely, this being one of those times, I should have a few days to add to the site since I can't work on the site code itself...)
I guess I can start a little excitement by saying most of these are small to large items you guys have asked for. The main two being...
1) User Forum Polls
- You will be able to create and add polls to topics...
2) Instant Messaging (cross site IM!
- You'll be able to send messages to other board members and receive them while you cruising around the site. The system will also allow you to store a set number of messages and manage them. (Not sure on message limit per person yet.)
See even when I can't GET to development resources, I am busy working on crap you guys wanna see!!!
Apologies to those wishing to register at this time, you'll just hafta hold out until the weekend!
