Sign-ups will be working a little differently now. Every night at midnight CST the server will automatically pick a random number of accounts that signed up that day and activate them. The rest of the applications will be deleted.

You might have to sign-up multiple days until you get in. Currently this is how we are going to regulate sign-ups while leaving it open 24/7. So, in short. Keep trying and you'll eventually get hosting. ;)

I guess that'll give all the staff a little more free time. But how random is the server gonna be when it chooses who's in a who's not?

Corey, I got a question.
What if I applied more than once to improve my odds of getting picked.
Is that ok or possible?

Its a Great idea. That way you wont get lagged full of accounts waiting to be activated. So if you want a new account, You'r gonna' have to work for it!!!

I like it, It's a great idea, Good job!

It will keep the servers goig smooth, There won't be the 200-300 signs ups a day like befor an slow everything down.

I think it's great, it's going to keep everything in order.

It uses array_rand() to pull a random account ID from an array containing an ID pertaining to each seperate pending account. Each random key is then used to create the accounts.

Understand now?

PHP:
	   $this->totalPending = count($pendingArray);
	   $i = 1;

	   while($i <= $this->accountsToAdd) {
	      $accountAddRand = array_rand($this->pendingArray);

	      if (in_array($this->pendingArray[$accountAddRand], $this->createArray) == false) {
	         $this->createArray[] = $this->pendingArray[$accountAddRand];
	         $i++;
	      }
	   }

A very good idea. So the people that really want the hosting will have to try a little harder.... But it is worth it.

Lol, we all know that nothing (currently) on a computer is truely random, I read this somewhere when I used to program and (random) is generated by a computer using a highly-sophisticated math compilation of a number under 1 and above 0 multiplied by another number. :)

no, trust me its random, that was probably a nubby vb prog, but in any case, i have a question, if you are not selected by the server, does it still count as your sign up?

Once you sign up once, and it does not get created, the sign up "application" is deleted so it does not exist anymore. That allows you to sign up again.
