User talk:Nothing

This is a shared account. If there is a problem with some of the edits made under this account, please consider its other users before taking heavy-handed actions. Don't discount the value of anonymity.

In that case, everyone should share one account, namely Anonymous. What's the point of requiring registration then? Pomte 00:45, 17 February 2007 (PST)
I think the only reason to require registration is as a spam protection measure. Compulsory registration raises the barrier to entry for prospective editors. A shared, anonymous account makes editing more accessible, and it can be dealt with if spam or vandalism becomes a problem. For me, the biggest benefit is not having to remember another username and password. —Nothing 03:27, 18 February 2007 (PST)
"Compulsory registration raises the barrier to entry for prospective editors." No. If someone really feels strongly enough to contribute, then they shouldn't be bothered by registering. "For me, the biggest benefit is not having to remember another username and password." Every single internet browser I've ever used allows for username and password saving. Also, you can enable cookies so you're automatically logged in when you visit the site. This account will be deleted in five days' time. If you require further information, please contact one of the administrators. -Heroicraptor 00:02, 19 February 2007 (PST)
I have frequently chosen not to edit wiki websites because they required registering. I use at least three different PCs — synchronising password databases across those is not trivial. This account has not been used for any ill purpose. It is only that I declared it a shared account that this discussion is even taking place. I can't help drawing parallels between the the threat of deleting this account and the themes of Year Zero. —Nothing 04:55, 19 February 2007 (PST)
We're fine with it. We'll treat it like any user account. I don't know what the hubbub is all about. --Tony 07:57, 19 February 2007 (PST)
Er...yeah, that means we won't delete your account. Not if I have anything to say about it. And I do. --Tony 07:59, 19 February 2007 (PST)

Regarding Download Links

Although I appreciate your enthusiasm in building the Year Zero song pages, please do not add download links for the songs. This is copyright infringement and is strongly discouraged here. If people really want to download the songs before the album drops, they know where to look. Thank you.--Leo3375 06:57, 8 April 2007 (PDT)
