Strop is a graveyard timezone mod? That's great to know.

I did...and then earlier this year my computer got stolen...

That sucks...

I think they should leave the thread (if there will be one) open for 24 hours. They'll just choose the most appropriate people to test the beta site. And they'll probably just leave the spammers/newbies/trollers alone.

They probably wouldn't wanna be online all night.

@Ryenn: Recognition for being soopah doopah awesome? You gots it! ;D

I personally go with the idea that a handful of invitations are given out to seemingly reliable users, they try out beta, more invitations are given out, they also try beta, then the signups are opened.
Regarding the issues of unreliable users getting picked: don't fret! If they don't do their job properly, kick them straight out of beta!

In beta, if we don't have forums then the most a useless user can do is spam somewhere...

Which means that useless testers are not a hindrance, just a waste of space...

Woah.. When I decided to experiment with stats tracking I nearly lost my data.. Heh. Keeping it on a flash drive was still good.

I was thinking about limited sign-ups first but that is also viable.

Gravetime as in gets online when I do, apparently. Because he has more to do irl than I have. Sometimes I am even online before him. What does that make me....

That makes you Gravekeeper...

I guess that Strop is getting on later and later these days...so he's edging into morning time...

But you know...this is off topic...Yay for the AM&W...
