    Me too please!

    Please can I be awarded these special powers too?

      Re: Me too please!

      Welcome.

  4. drunk.smile
    Meh

    Don't let me in!

    I don't want to be mutated. I like the idea of my posts being lovingly looked at by a moderator before they 'go live' (I miss you Sarah). Why should I be forced to give up that thrill just for the sake of a little formatting?

      Done - and why don't you give the user forum a try-out, while you're at it.

    Pretty please

    Can I play too?

      Re: Pretty please

      Yes you can - see if you can find some playmates.

      PS Matthew 3 sounds like scripture - chapter but not verse.

    Me too

    Can I join as well? Please.

    1. Drewc (Written by Reg staff) Gold badge

      I am curious, hypnotic

      You have only made two posts (and this one) in 2.5 years. Why do you want these super powers and will you actually use them?

      1. hypnotic
        Happy

        Re: I am curious, hypnotic

        I do read the article comments regularly but I just don't post anything when I don't have anything to add on to discussion but I do post my opinion in the forums when the discussion is not about an article. It is up to you whether do you want me to give me the super powers or not.

        1. Drewc Gold badge

          I look forward to reading your contributions

          hypnotic, thanks for replying. Upgraded.

      Quite good is the best we can expect from you, Winky Pop.

    My problem with all this is....

    finding the actual forums in order to browse them.

    Seriously, if there's a quick link you've hidden it astonishingly well.

    1. Drewc Gold badge

      Quick link for beta front page

      http://forums.theregister.co.uk/section/user

      Yes, we could be better, and apologies if we are being a pain. We will flip the switch in the next week or so - to enable people to get to the new user forums from the front page, but first we want to kill some bugs

    Begging your pardon

    Inasmuch as I've had limited access whilst abroad, now that I've returned may I have a cookie?

    1. Drewc Gold badge

      Eddy, can I say no?

      Of course not. You're in.

  13. jubtastic1

    Not sure if that sounded right.

    I have a huge surplus of markup tags and would like to put them to good use.

            Why, thank you very much!

  16. Chris Miller

    Don't HTML markup tags already work? Still, put me down for some superpowers - I fancy X-ray vision, Drew.

    you mean I can really truly have a decent rant

    at last, I can do a rant on why ITIL implementations are a Bad Idea and worse practice.

    When I can finish this paperwork to reboot a server that is {S}

    Oh this is exciting, I like how it's discreet, no badge next to the name saying seekrit agent or anything. Leaves everyone else wondering haha.

    Plug me in to thse awesome super powers please Drewc. I promise I won't be evil, just like Google.

    1. Drewc (Written by Reg staff) Gold badge

      Done

    is the upgrade now universal?

    or do I still have to make a manual request?

    1. Drewc (Written by Reg staff) Gold badge

      Re: is the upgrade now universal?

      Universal for you, Mr Cowerd.
