Open Invitation

Tags: 4thelulz, k5 is dead (all tags)

Last year I began working on a discussion site called 4thelulz. Several people from K5 signed up, but not many participated, understandably.

I took the site down for a while, and recently dusted it off and put it back on the internet. I've added some new features, gotten some more users from other sites to join up and plan on doing more work.

The main new feature that I've implemented is Communities. A community is a list of users created by a single user. Communities can be assigned to discussions when they are created and only those users in the assigned communities will even know the discussion exists.

Users who have been added to a community cannot add or remove other users, but they can assign that community to their own discussions.

This basically allows for private areas of the board, managed by whoever wanted to create it. Sort of like the old troll sids on slashdot, buy with actual enforcement of who can see them and who can't.

Other features coming: private messaging, favorites (favorites can be users, tags, discussions or comments) and image support.

I'm also open to suggestions.

If you signed up before, your account is still there. If you haven't, sign up now and get in on the ground floor!

Took me five tries with the blasted Captcha to sign up. Why does the bloody thing erase your duplicate password when the captcha fails and you have to try it again?

Also, after account creation it invites you to "look around" until your account is confirmed but since your account isn't confirmed it redirects back to the create an account page.

for a small site trying to attract new users, having closed "communities" that new members can't see is not a great idea. But I suppose no harm in trying the experiment, other than a site with no users.
