It’s just data

Membership has its privileges

I'm working on a membership registration service for intertwingly.  At the moment, it simply replies that all ids are unavailable, but it will shortly send out confirmation emails and process responses.

Details on what I intend this service to be for can be found on the registration page.  Feedback welcome.


Do "subscription services" mean syndication services as well?

Will whatever comment posting API you decide to support account for user IDs and authentication?

PS: Your spell checker needs to learn that "API" is not a typo. :)

Addendum dictionary

Due to persistant prodding by Dare, I've created an addendum dictionary.  Leave comments here if there are particularly troublesome words that you would like ...

I'm sorry, userid "chanezon" is unavailable. Please try another id.
What do you mean not available ?
I'm the only geek in my family and we're the only one to use that name.
Did you pre-register me by any chance ?-)
Or rae there constraints on the userids that are not explicit on the form ?

You need a privacy policy.

Not the first time I don't read one of your post carefuly enough :-)
I look forward to registration: a feature that would let me remove my previous stupid comment would come in handy just right now !

Sheesh.  I'm beginning to wonder if anybody actually reads my weblog entries any more.  ;-)

Mark: can't I simply adopt Scott McNealy's?  ;-)

I double-dog-dare you to use some of the language from dive into mark premium (specifically the "freeloaders") part.

Mark - trust me, that had crossed my mind.  ;-)

It would be nice if the form retained input when registration fails due to unavailabale ids or whatever. Yes I did read the blog and I do know that is expected :-)

I wonder if the ability to update comments a good idea?

Conor: re: retaining input: done.

re: update comments... time will tell.  For now, lets call this a long term plan.

Maybe update coupled with a revision control system, like Twiki did with its RCS support (for each wiki page you have a list of revisions and can look at the differences, or the older versions). Thus as a comment poster you can control the final content of a comment post, but the history of your revisions will be there for all to see.
