New Blog System, NOW Live

The new blog system went live tonight on the public forums.
Its not as configurable as the old Blog
but with it using the same user accounts as the forums and its going to save/solve a lot of problems.

For now all users will be able to make a blog and post comments
Over the coming months we will have to limit this to users who can already post a URL link (in other words new users won’t be able to make a blog and any comments by them would be moderated 1st)
If spam does cause a more problems with the blogs the Blog system may have to become a "Requested system"

You as the blog poster can choose if users can post comments
Plus you can choose if any comments on your blog should be moderated 1st (by you)
This is a by post option so you can pick when you want it on and for which blog posts.

Featured blogs will be at the top of the blogs page
At the moment all users blogs will appear here
But in the future only blogs we pick (which will be the ones that are posted regularly and used properly)

If you find any bugs with the blog (which there will be)
please make a new post (in this forum) for each bug so we can track the problems

Were hoping this integration is going to make it all easier for you all to use

Surely making a a 'requested' system would be preferable anyway?

Need as many people as we can using the system at the moment so we can get it fully tested out
with bots being scripted 99% of them wouldn't be able to navigate a blog (till they get scripted, which will happen)
so taking advantage of it before it happens
The old blog system wasn't really used as much as it should be mainly because no one wanted to make a new account to either post or comment
and even when they did there was major log in problems and bugs

works on IE7 here m8
(its not a forum feature so it should effect which browser is used)
This isn't a blog feature either, delete your web catch if its still playing up and and try again (if you can)
