We are at 49 registered members ... 1 is no longer a citizen.

Really weird.  I said a few days ago that I was kind of shocked to see Cresti Caveglhet on the list of striker-outers.  The fact that he registered an account of New Witt right before striking out makes it all the more odd.

Obviously the compulsory-voting rule isn't actually working to make sure that those who are still interested in Talossa keep voting.

Wittenberg has been upgraded to SMF 2.0.16, which carries security fixes and other benefits, including GDPR compliance support (we do need to set a privacy policy to be fully compliant though).

Oh, and the Mentions mod has been reinstalled, as it was misbehaving.

Is there a way to have personal messages arranged like they were on old Witt?

Nevermind, I just found the message settings menu.

Is there a block function?  I couldn't find one.

The Registration Agreement has been updated and it's likely that more changes will happen "soon" as we adjust to using New Witt as the only Witt, particularly quality of life changes and other changes related to the implementation of Wittiquette.

In unrelated news, we've had a lot of spam accounts registering lately, which is a bit of a nuisance but not much of a real issue because 1) they're easy to mass delete; 2) they can do nothing unless assigned to a group by an admin or Immigration. Because of this, though, we have now switched to reCAPTCHA for verification instead of SMF's Visual Verification Image.

Finally, this post (and the Welcome one, which will also be locked) will be moved to the Webspace board soon, with a FAQ post being worked on. As always, continue using this post for feedback, criticism and help.

Please don't mass delete all those accounts just yet.  2 of them are real accounts that are pending.  I have 2 incoming applicants that I am struggling to verify identity with, so those accounts should remain for the time being until I can make a decision one way or the other.

Ah, too late.

I see you've mass deleted the recent flurry of spam accounts already.  One of the two "real" accounts has been kept, but one has gotten lost in the mass delete.  Is that account retrievable or does the applicant need to re-register once I can verify his identity?

It's not retrievable I'm afraid, I'm sorry. At least with reCaptcha we won't have this problem in the future.

No worries.  If the applicant replies to my last communication and helps me verify who he is then I can just have him register again.

Is it possible to make polls?
