This is what I don't get. Giant Bombs abilitie to make new accounts was taken down for only 3 days and the new GB site was up. Now why is ComicVine waiting over a Month to put the new site up and taking away opportunities to make new accounts? Why not just waite 3 days before the New Website goes up like GB did?

Eh, well the thread in the RPG section is about alts.

But yeah, they should have mentioned it here too.

Although you can still make new accounts via internet magic.

@JediXMan: None period and your IP doesnt specify how many accounts u can have. You can have as many as you like.

I thought it was stupid enough they took away the ability to make space and dash names, now its no accounts period. Next we wont be able to make Names with Captital letter anymore which Would really suck! I hope it doesnt go that far.

1. I realize. But you can limit it by IP. I know how the system works; I've done it.

2. It's temporary.

There's no feature in CV's mod tools that allows for this.

Why would you wanna limit how many accounts u can make? I mean its your choice if you want or done want to make anymore.

I know this is temporary, but GiantBomb shut their ability to make new accounts down for 3 days until the new site was up. Over here they're making us waite a freaking Month. Its bs and its stupid.

@Ren_: Then what was their coding reason to take away space and dash names and make us use underscores or no mark at all? They should of taken away the underscore option and made it space names only. and dash.

Because some coding have a problem with dashes. Slashes are the absolute bane of codes half the time.

It's not just another character; the characters that are important in codes (slashes) get screwed up when names have those characters.

@JediXMan: Whats the coding got anything to do with it? It shouldnt. GB's account makers was shut down for just 3 days. CV should of done the same thing. Waite three days before the new websites getting released, instead of waiting a Month.

CV, to my knowledge, have less staff working on the site's coding. So it's probably taking them longer, or they had some unforeseen complications.

Why would the new site have affect on making accounts though? It's not fair. Not fair for me. Its not fair for you and it's not fair for the newbies who find this site and decide to Join.

I did have something important to tell you. I asked why we couldnt make accounts. Why didnt the peeps on Giant Bomb have to waite a month? They didnt even waite a week. The new GB was up. Whats taking them so long to put the new CV up?

Jeeze, it's only temporary. For a free website I've had no complaints with ComicVine. I believe someone already answered the question of why its taking a month instead of 3 days, because there are fewer people working on the coding.

The GB site's had the beta going since early january, if not around late december. They have to completely transition CV over to the new format starting now. Which means a lot of sht's gotta get tweaked before it's at the same point as GB.
