Registered users on the discussion groups

Very small new feature. You can now sign up for an account over on the discussion groups. When you’re logged on, a little green checkbox appears next to your name. You can also star favorite articles and return to them quickly later.

The software running the discussion groups is our in-house, under-development, unannounced version of FogBugz 6, which will be going to beta later this summer, and we’re rolling it out now as a part of our continuing efforts to eat our own dogfood.

Q: Do I have to identify myself?
