Just three days after shutting down open registration, I see Andy’s removed the e-mail link from the Main Page and open registration has been restored. Of course, when you take into account that registration is only open for about an hour a day and you realise that we use the word “open” in it’s broadest possible context. Still, it’s in good company, seeing as how Conservapedia uses words like “honestly’, “facts” and “trustworthy” in their broadest possible context.
Still, it was hardly a roaring success – only 4 new accounts created in the 4 days. At least they haven’t been blocked yet. So, what was all this about? An experiment to see if the conservatives were flocking to CP after the GOP’s win? A failed powerplay by Terry Koeckritz?
One wonders what will be next – maybe flagged revisions, that would bury edits by non-sysops until Terry approves them? Oh wait… there are no non-sysops left. Silly me.
