Milovana Is Open for New Registrations

Post by seraph0x » Mon Feb 13, 2017 1:19 am

Fellow Milovaneers! :wave:

After several months of quarantine, we are finally re-opening registrations!

In order to prevent spambots from streaming in again, we are trying something new: Each registration requires an invite code. How to get an invite code? Ask an existing member. Invite codes will be handed out to users who have been a Milovana member for more than four months on the Invites page.

If you haven't registered previously, you may do so now!

For those who already had registered and whose account is currently inactive, you can activate it (using an invite code) here.

I didn't do too much testing of this up-front, so let me know if anything goes awry. Also, note that the instructions for getting an invite code are telling people to head to the chat. I realize that the chat currently requires you to be registered. The plan is to some anonymous chat option soon where people can ask for invites.

Why invite-only?

:spam:

We've been in an arms race with spam bots for a long time. Because I don't have a lot of time to devote to the site, spam bots have been winning lately, that's why registrations were turned off.

However, Milovana has an active, awesome community. I'm counting on you ladies, gents and sissies to decide who may become part of our illustrious little club.

:group:

The nice thing about invites is that the inviter and the invitee are connected. So if a bunch of spambots start showing up, we can figure out who let them in and ban the whole lot at once.

What if I'm tricked by a spammer into giving them an invite code?

We certainly won't come after people who invite a single spammer. Just try your best - we all want a spam-free forum. :love:

Update: Word of advice: Don't post your invites publicly. The preferred way is to hand them out one-by-one via private message or private chat. That way you maximize the chance that your codes will go to real people instead of bots.

Chat right now doesn't work via the web client... So no one without a client can get in

Then check your PMs seraph

Web client should be working again now. Note that it's currently for registered users only - I'm planning to create a separate room called the "foyer" that anonymous users are allowed to use. Members who want to help grow the site can hang out there and hand out invites. Members who don't want to be bothered by the anonymous people can just leave the foyer.

We'll see how hard this is to implement and how well it works. I'm sure there will be a couple of members who will spend more time vetting newcomers and they'll probably run out of invites. If that happens, I can allocate them more invites than normal members would get.

Beyond that - we'll adjust the plan based on what works and doesn't work. This is a place for explorers after all.

Along those lines;
I noticed I only have a handful and I presume everyone does. I presume then that it would have to be filled manually by Team/admin folks or are they on a timer and every X amount of hours we gain 1 back to a cap.

Regular members get up to four invites every 120 days. Obviously, Team members and chat mods will get a lot more, but I haven't gotten around to setting that up yet. If it turns out that there are non-mods who would like to help invite more people, we will also be able to increase the limit for those people as well.

This is my favorite post ever. Seeing Milovana go from "well it's probably dead" to "it's alive and registrations are back!!" within just a few days has been stunning.

Thank you seraph0x!!!

I opened up a thread on the subreddit for any one to ask for an invite.
