I'm testing a new feature which will prompt some members to confirm certain things.

For example, before someone can become an EC, they'll have to confirm that they've read the rules. Someone who has been a member for awhile may need to confirm that their email address is still correct. Etc.

This has various benefits:

  • Ensures everyone reads the rules at least once, which helps maintain community cohesion as we grow.
  • Ensures that if someone forgets their password, they have the best chance possible of recovering their account.
  • Ensures that folks' emails are valid, so, in future, should we start sending the Newsletter again, we have a better chance of reaching everyone.
