Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

September 30, 2008 -

Late last week GamePolitics switched over to a requirement that users be registered before commenting.

There were a number of reasons for this, but ultimately it seemed like the best decision. The flip side is that some users haven't received their registration validation e-mail. If that applies to you, please contact me and I can get that issue resolved...

No /b/tards, and no court filing spam? Someone explain how this is a bad thing.

I did hear about the registering problems some people have been having though, I hope it gets/got ironed out.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

I had problems with the registration, but eventually managed to get a, "change your password," email sent to me with a link. So now, everything's just peachy. =^_^=

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

 If you haven't got you registration email, check your spam. For some reason (and I know I didn't mark it) my GP email ended up in my bulk. Don't ask why.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

Well, at least we don't have trolls anymore.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

I did! Only registered after I read your post, so missed chance.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

Hahhahaha. Well done!

Now, if you were an evil person you'd have several ways of screwing this registration business completely:

1. Hand over the password to anyone who asks

2. Post on other people's behalf

3. Create a email-to-gp, web-to-gp or IM-to-gp gateway/proxy/bot

4. Pretend to be the unregistered anonymous user and post as if you were

Chaos, anarchy, disorder!

j/k, of course.

fifthed!! and now for your stupid question of the year this means jack thompson wont be allowed to post right?

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

Not until he creates an account, in which case he could be banned from posting on the site if he gets too out of hand.  I kind of miss him personally.  He does add a certain spice to it all.  If isn't hard to create an htaccess script that would block certain IP addresses, and as long as the IP address is tracked, you could send him to a totally different website when he tries to come here.  (I suggest an article about him being disbarred personally.)

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

I don't think he'll create an account. He enjoys wreaking havoc here, and he can't do that without being the exact thing he accuses us of being: anonymous jerks.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

...uh

fourthed.

Re: Housekeeping: Registering for Comments

I think this is for the better.  The discussions are more calm and there is no trolling.

MaskedPixelanteI suspect Howard will show up in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as a bartender on Knowhere or something.11/22/2014 - 9:52am
Michael ChandraWonderkarp, try games where you don't get interactive cutscenes and only the main character really talks to people. Or games with a silent protagonist. I think the Bechdel test is a nice indicator (though flawed) for movies and such, but not games.11/22/2014 - 7:56am
ZippyDSMleeWymorence: HTD was a fun and very messed up film I love it. A new one would be nothing like it sadly.11/22/2014 - 1:57am
Andrew EisenOnly if we lived in a world where a bad movie meant every subsequent attempt would suck. Seriously though, after the last few years, I'll give Marvel the benefit of the doubt that it could make a great Howard the Duck movie.11/22/2014 - 1:29am
Wymorenceisn't that a GOOD thing there isn't a movie after the abomination that was the first?11/22/2014 - 12:27am

MechaCrashThe point of the Bechdel Test isn't "is this film sexist," it's to illustrate "this is an incredibly low bar and most movies STILL can't pass it."11/21/2014 - 10:11pm

Wonderkarpthank you for that line, Andrew. alot of great films fail the bechdel test. Gravity fails it and it has a female lead.11/21/2014 - 4:48pm
Andrew EisenAw, thanks James! Well, now I have to drive back to work!11/21/2014 - 4:45pm
Andrew EisenDidn't have a chance to say this on the HuffPost segment but while the Bechdel test is useful as a broad examination of gender representation in media, it's not at all appropriate as a judgment of quality.11/21/2014 - 4:45pm
