  1. The Dell Screen apparently isn’t 780, it appears to be 959, which is still a great deal, although you can get it for free by buying xps gen5 (at least you could about a month ago)

  2. Individual verification for comments sucks.

    Captcha based systems somewhat less annoying.

    How about adding real user accounts(with email verification on the creation)? Leaving a captcha based method for non-account holders.

    Otherwise keep up the good work.

  3. I was going to say that we should keep the verification system, as it help stops pointless spam posts, but I REALLY like the idea of user accounts – I want to be a registered member of hack-a-day! Maybe only the registered members get to go to a special, non-beta site.

  4. I guess there is a poitn to the email verifications: they stop advertising spambots. It would be incredibly cool if we could have actual user accounts, that would really make a real community.

  5. Re: email verification removed..
    Yup I’d go for user accounts. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to tarce all your, or others, comments to follow certain sorties. Heck! on top of that Most of us here live in a privilege based world and isn’t hackaday the father of our roots?

  6. Captcha can be broken.
    There is software out there that has but it has not been released.

    The email thing is not bad and if anyone was goint to spam the comments they could write a script to do this already.

    The user accounts are the hardest for admins but easiest for users. Why? Backing up the database that contains the usernames and then having a loging somehow.

    I say leave it like it is. Some Captchas are so badly implemented that you the human cant even read it. User accounts means one more password to remember.
