New MozillaZine Member Area
Saturday January 2nd, 1999
UPDATE BELOW! (1/3/98)
MozillaZine now has a member area, and a number of other new features!
Membership in mozillaZine is free, and confidential. Your information is displayed only if you specifically want it displayed.
To read more about the membership, and what it offers you, click "Full Article" below.
To sign up, just click "members" on the navbar at right. All that we require is a valid email address to confirm the account. Please note that if you enter a bogus email address, or an email address that you don't have access to, you will not be able to validate your account.
If you find any bugs, please submit them here: mozineBugs@mozillazine.org. Don't post them in the forum, please!
UPDATE!If you created a bio page, and were wondering why it didn't show up, it was because a slight change I made to the template was not uploaded properly. To fix the problem, go to the members area, edit your bio page, and just click the "Alter Account" button. Your page should generate properly. Sorry!
Also, we've created a new option in the members area for people who don't believe they've received a validation message. (We've gotten no bug reports about this, but with the flaky weather the past few days, it's better to be safe than sorry.) Just enter your login and password, and a new validation message will be sent to your email address. This feature won't work if you're already validated.

Thanks for the compliment!
The talkback and profile setup was handrolled using PHP3 and MySQL. I've had a lot of requests for the code, but it's just too poor to give out at the moment. After this new code is debugged, and the wishlists go online, I plan to take a while and clean up the existing code; it may actually get to the point where I wouldn't be embarrassed to relese it! In the meantime, check out PHP3 at http:<http://www.php.net.> It's actually enjoyable to code (Perl is enjoyable too, but in a treasure-hunt kind of way, IMO).
