Why do I have to register to do [insert site function here]?
At Alpha Comedy, we hate SPAM. Like, really hate it. With the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns. However, we also hate captchas, almost as much as SPAM. Since throwing a captcha on every comment form is the generally accepted method of SPAM prevention, we found ourselves in a bit of a pickle when designing our input forms.
We have tried to keep the number of captchas you have to read to a minimum by requiring an approved user account to do many things on the site, such as comment or email comedians.
So, in a way, we require you to register to save you time and eye strain. You're welcome!
What is this Alerts thing, and why don't I have any?!
Alerts is Alpha Comedy's notifications system. This system is used by several site functions to notify you of things you may be interested in, i.e. when someone posts a comment on something you commented on. So, to get alerts, you need to do stuff on the site. The more you participate, the more it will show you.
Alpha Comedy Staff may also use the system to notify users of important site news (like what we had for lunch last Tuesday) instead of sending you annoying SPAM emails.
