OK everyone, here is what we have decided. Instead of opening registration or handing out extra invites to everyone we are going to use a rigorous application system. We feel this is a unique and inventive way for our staff members to screen each possible new member to our community. However, we are still going to use the invite system that we have in place. This way our members can still invite their trusted friends but people who do know anyone already on the site can still have the opportunity to join this fine community.
We have also updated our rules. Please make sure you read them!
