To gain access each contributor will have to create a profile which includes a moniker and an email address. And before you start whining, I get it, no one in their right mind is going to give a “good” email address.
Here’s the problem: I’m no web designer and don’t claim to be so there’s things I can change on this site and things I can’t. An email address wasn’t required in the old blog but I can’t “uncheck” that requirement on this site (for now, I’m still looking).
Here’s a tip: just use a fake email address (email@example.com). If I were you, I wouldn’t put a damn thing on this blog which could individually identify me.
