After some discussion in the staff forum, we have decided to implement an entrance test in order to filter out out some of our less than desirable members. The test can be completed easily by most people in about 5-10minutes. The other alternative was an introduction post, but we feel this is a better way to let people get straight into posting topics and replies they want. You're only required to take the test should you wish to post on the forum. Site facilities and registration are accessible without taking it. The trialist phase has also been disabled for new users, we'll see how that pans out too. As for Hacktube, that should be back up and running next week some time as I mentioned in the previous news update. It's also worth noting that the Annual hacking contest will be reaching it's deadline soon, so we have a whole new batch of awesome hacks to look forward to there. I intend to make sure the 'tube is up for that!
