We’re undergoing some changes in the back-end of how we manage our properties and one of the changes is that we’re now stopping the sign-up and registration process for each individual blog.
Previously we’ve enabled this feature but as our community has grown we’ve realized that there might be some better and more advantageous alternatives, some of which are based on your suggestions.
Here are our thoughts:
For starters, people have complained since Day #1 that we don’t have a single sign-on process (SSO) and that someone is forced to register individually for each blog.
We feel your pain and it’s definitely a hassle. So, we’re going to look into some solutions for that!
Also, to increase the speed of the sites it’s actually better with our configuration to be a guest and not logged in using your cookies and such to populate comments. Won’t go into details but you’ll actually get a better performance out of the sites if you’re not logged in.
The 8BIT Newsletter! SIGN UP!
Finally, we’re going to be start a new 8BIT Newsletter that’ll have behind-the-scenes information, updates, and news that won’t be posted to the blogs.
You’re going to want to subscribe (do it here) and for those that have registered to the blogs we’ve automatically put you on the newsletter since we have assumed you’re interested in getting the inside scoop.
Feel free to opt-out when the first one drops!
Thanks all. We’re constantly trying to improve the performance and experience for YOU, our awesome community!
