I've completely rewritten this script from scratch. Here are the changes:


  • Definitely aesthetic and UX improvements.

  • GTX0's funky username-checking captcha has been replaced with basic math. Also good UX here (it's only two characters long so people can't get confused and write "fourteen" or something).

  • Better error messages

  • Password confirmation input

  • If you register with a username that already exists as an altname, it automatically becomes your primary username.

  • If you register with a username that doesn't have an altname for it, it'll create one and assign it as your primary username.

  • You no longer need an admin to activate your account / activate it through email.

  • In fact, you're also automatically logged in and go back to whatever page you were on.


  • Just an aesthetic / UX upgrade here. Functionality is exactly the same.

    Mail stuff

  • I've installed a third-party mailer and gone through a bunch of verification steps to get gtx0 messages to bypass gmail's spam filter. I would like to require email verification of accounts at some point again, but it may take a while.

    @Count Dooku: Since I was doing this for NIFE anyway, I figured I'd start to implement some of our agreed-upon changes :)
