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.

Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm

MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
