Registration Required [Updated]

Starting today anyone who wants to comment on articles posted on this site will have to Register and be logged in to do so.Registration takes less than one minute and is full of benefits- one being no one else will be able to comment using your name and identity.

This is also a good time to suggest that members get themselves a gravatar.Gravatars are those small images that appear beside your posts and you can sign up for one here. Just remember that gravatars work with your e-mail addy and in order for it to show up on this blog and others you must register with the same address you use to register with on this site.

UPDATED: Just as quickly as Registration was enabled it has been disable.It appears WordPress has a bug and most people are not getting their passwords sent to them.So for now if you want to register and it works for you then fine, but it is not needed in order to post or participate on the site.

  1. I’ve always been registered.It’s about time too.This will keep out all the dummies who run acrosss the site to flame.Yeah some people will just bounce but you want quality not quantity.

  2. This was the right move.Registration is the only way to keep a site classy and mature.

  3. Okay, I think I’ve completed all the registration and I hope my gravatar works! Thanks!

  4. Your gravatar will be rated first- then it will start appearing here.That should happen soon.Also did you register on both sites with the same e-mail addy?

  5. I’m registered now. As often as I visit this site, occasionally leaving a comment, I honestly hadn’t considered registering – my apologies. But I’m official now! Next I have to get a gravatar.

  6. Go to the link Stephanie posted in her article and follow the instructions.Use the same email addy you used to sign up here.Here is the link again-> http://site.gravatar.com/

    Once you register and upload your gravatar it should start appearing here soon.It will also appear on all blogs you post on that are gravatar enabled.

    We actually had Registration disable so need to apologize.We wanted to give everyone the ability to post without the hassle of registration.But with so many flamers running through we decided to enable registration to keep those folks out.Chances are ppl like that don’t want to be bothered registering just to say something stupid- so they will keep on moving while the good folks will register to keep participating.

    🙂

  8. I still can’t see my gravatar. Hmmm, I must be doing something wrong – do I have to do anything on this site for it to appear? Anyone? Anyone?

  9. Thanks for the info, Stephanie! I was one of those people sending an email about not receiving a password.

    I’m glad to have back the access to comment! :dance:

    I see your gravatar.It’s kinda dark and hard to make out but it looks like a woman- possibly Beyonce.
