Okay, so I'm not the SQL wizard. I had a couple small bugs in the signup system, like not being able to use apostrophes in your name. That should be fixed now. Glee.

The message board system is separate from VectorStar Networks' user system. Each message board can have its own registered users, and can choose whether they want to allow unregistered/anonymous posting or not. :)

Since this is VectorStar's official news board, only the admins have registered accounts. :)

I've been playing with the idea of automatically making all users members of the messageboard, but haven't quite worked out the excessive amount of hacked-up perl->SQL I'd need to make it happen.
