User Registration Update


I've added a spam filter to the user registration form.  I'm going to leave it be for a few days to see how well it works.  If it blocks most of the fake registrations (which have accelerated to ~50/day) then I'll disable the requirement that accounts be approved by an administrator.

If it fails, then I may have to rely on CAPTCHAs.  And I really don't want to do that.  I've always found them annoying.

Profile Upgrades

I've added fields to the user profile to allow users to indicate gender, inflation preferences, and roleplay preferences (or lack thereof).  Please take a moment to edit your profile with updated information.

NOTE: All profile fields are optional. If you'd rather not fill it in, that's just peachy.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please post them in the Profile upgrades thread in the forum.


One thing I didn't consider when making the switch from CPG-Nuke to Drupal is that there are a lot more spambots out there for Drupal.  They hit the site pretty much as soon as it went up, and have been creating new accounts at a rate of about 2-3 per hour.  Until I get some anti-spam gear installed, this means two things:

  1. All new user registrations will require manual approval by me.
  2. It's possible that I'll delete legitimate signups that look like they might be spammers.  Read on to learn how to avoid this.

Avatars are fixed.

I've fiddled with things a bit, and I think I have the profile image issue fixed.

Welcome to the New


The site is dead, long live the site.  The rebuilt has finally arrived.

Here's a breakdown on some of the things that have changed.   Yes, it's long, but please read it.  It has lots of nifty info.


Brace for Turbulence

I've decided to keep the site open for a while longer, as the feedback has been good and helpful. However, there are still a few things that need fixing. Don't be surprised if the site occasionally throws an odd error or is intermittently unavailable.

Welcome Beta Testers


Please look around, make yourselves comfortable.

Play around on the site. Check out the Image Gallery, the Library and other things and let me know how they work for you. There are three things I'm mainly concerned about, in decreasing order of importance:

Acidfree is back?


A brief recap: When I first started rebuilding using Drupal, I chose an image gallery module called Acidfree. Simply put, it had the best functionality of all of the Drupal-based media galleries available at the time.

Then, as often happens with open source projects, it went idle.


Today I upgraded all of the modules to the most recent versions. I've been lax. Sixteen were in need of update. Tomorrow I'll upgrade the Drupal core to the latest version. First I've got to track down where I made changes to the caching headers so I can recreate them. It's annoying, but a necessary evil. And as unfriendly as it is, I think it's a good design choice on Drupal's part.

On Galleries, Revisited

I like Menalto Gallery, I really do. Apart from Drupal features, it has almost everything I want from a gallery. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with Gallery 2 as Gallery 3 doesn't have the integration API yet. Blech. And the devs don't seem to think that being able to review a picture before it's posted is an important feature. This is a built-in behavior for nodes in Drupal, so its absence is jarring. Add that to what I'd be missing from the gallery being shoehorned into Drupal, and I've reconsidered my decision.
