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.

Matthew Wilson@pnx I am guessing a ddoss since that is what happened to neogaf, but sony needs to do a investment in psn as a whole. steam is still the most reliable and fastest digital platform I use.07/03/2015 - 3:06pm

InfophileI'm in favor of getting rid of region-locking for any purchased games. I can understand an exception for free, ad-supported games, as many ads are only relevant in certain regions, and it's a ridiculous hassle to get ads for all regions.07/03/2015 - 10:40am

Andrew EisenYou know what I'd really like to see become standard? The ability to pause cutscenes. Rewind and skip (with "Are you sure?") would be nice too. Oh, and maybe display the duration of the cutscene when it's paused.07/03/2015 - 1:03am
Mattsworknameonly reason to do region locking now is to be dicks your consumer base. Granted, we see that ALOT these days07/03/2015 - 12:48am
MattsworknameI understand the concerns about the region locking thing, I just thing that if you buy a game legitimately, no matter where it's from or what langauge it's in, you should be allowed to play it. the argument about piracy was proven false years ago, the07/03/2015 - 12:47am

Goth_SkunkI'm in full agreement on the subtitles issue. I also believe that every game should come with a single-player component, and be playable without an internet connection. Except MMOs.07/02/2015 - 10:51pm
TechnogeekRegion locking bans seem like something that'll be very difficult to pass into law. I'm fully on board with the subtitle requirement, though.07/02/2015 - 10:00pm
MattsworknameFor example, all games with any for form of spoken dialoge should be i subtitled, and region locking in any form should be illegal07/02/2015 - 9:03pm
MattsworknameDoes anyone feel that there should be a set standard for all games in terms of certain basic features. Ie subtitles, region lock, etc07/02/2015 - 9:01pm
