Haha! P-Bot is a little bitch! Hahaha! Well, we need more of him! We need a few "meow meow meow" posts by our dear friend Sherbert! Or maybe you could let him type himself!

Tom, I am going to start learning all this programing stuff. I really like everything you've done with your site. Well. I do have a suggestion.

I emailed you a while ago to see if you could delete one of my entries, would it be possible that the author could have the option to remove his old crappy entry after a set amount of time? I know we wouldn't want any of the authors deleting something on the frontpage, but I would really like to have the option to delete my first entry.


I can do t3h voices. Lots of em.LOTS OF THEM!! ^^;;
OMFG GOOGLE HYDECKA!!

You can have proof that you have friends! Anyway all I have to say is Multi-Author system = better movies. Well, maybe that's not all I want to say. I think I might get off my ass and make a movie one of these days.

Good job Wade and Jim.

If you have previously formed a joint user account in order to represent a group, you can now go back to crediting your individual user accounts. Be sure to email me if you wish to do this, as I can transfer the credit!

This sounds great,I just hope that it works accordingly, NG is getting better and better.

that's the best NEW thing since the Club section opened - w00t!

They'll go nicely hand-in-hand if the Club founders can have more control over Club forums content (edit/delete posts ;)

that's a good idea. that would also keep authors from just listing just anybody because they feel like it. then they would have to trust the person they put as coauthor. maybe i'll make a movie and make sherbert the coauthor. do you think he would accept the responsiblilty?

I'm clicking on the Portal Buddy List in my Grounds Gold Menu, but's it not working. I want to see what it looks like. You can access it even though you haven't made a movie right? Or is it down for the time being? Or is my internet so screwed up I should send them hate mail?

Define "not working." Yes, you should be able to see the page even if you don't have submissions. I just tried it now and it loaded right up.

Thanks for the credit.

If you're talking about the double opt-in stuff, that's something I'd already written out to do before Tom even made his initial post. The only thing that's been borrowed from any of those ideas (from what I remember) is labels for the multi-author options in your personal profile editing area.

Looking at the example, I have a few questions about this:

1) Will you have immediate access to seeing all the authors' submissions if they're added upon submission?
2) Will both authors get awards if they're classified as authors when the award is given?
