Rich Rodriguez's elves are hard at work building wins for next year:
Non-Brian posting will probably resume tomorrow.
Henri the Otter of Ennui is the new mascot of posting restrictions.
Post-Illinois restrictions back: 20 to comment, 500 to start new threads/diaries. Will be in effect until Monday morning.
Justification I probably don't need to provide: seriously dislike new registrants who sign up just to flame and would rather proactively cut them off than have to read it. Criticism is fine from people who have established themselves as part of the community.
Yeah… so the site was a little goofy for a while. Why did this happen? I don't know. I put up Tim's press conference recap and then did nothing. I come back and I've got 30 panicked emails. Drupal is very sorry about that.
I did bad.
If it happens again the fix is "click this button" so it shouldn't take nearly as long now that I know what the magic words are.
UPDATE: Okay, maybe panic a little. This has happened a couple times today and evidently I'm going to have to find a more permanent solution.
I'm on WTKA now. Right now.
