New Registration Modal for UNIX.COM

Alright.... I have completed the first cut of the new modal for user registration, sign-ups:

Have tested 20 times + and it seems to work fine.

If anyone wants to test, please do!

LOL... I thought I could do this in 30 minutes; but between all the styling, the error management, redirects and more, it took me a full 8 hours to get this working OK on both mobile and desktop.

Was going to pull down some fancy ones from the net; but ended up writing it from scratch; since there were a few nuances that were forum related and legacy code related.

Gzzzzz.

Hi Neo,

The two front page Icons seem to give differing results on Firefox 58.1 see attached png's.

Great Catch, thanks Gull04! Excellent "bug" report with screenshots too! Easy to fix.

Fixed... Forgot about that menu item.

Thanks again!

Note:

Would love to get rid of that Google reCaptcha, but if I do, the spammer flood gate will open up.

I may test and move to Invisible reCaptcha:

Invisible reCAPTCHA | reCAPTCHA | Google Developers

This will make the registration process look better and we can record the Google reCaptcha risk score on the server side for each registration in the database and use that for a new "badge" .. :wink: :wink:

I did a little testing of various scenarios, and perhaps no easy way around the 'captcha', but if I pick a username already in use (but do not know this) and go through all the steps including the captcha... then the computer tells me the username is taken, I must go through the captcha all over again. It does not remember that I am human.
As I said, maybe a side-effect of the 'captcha'; but I sense people picking usernames already taken and thus having to do it all over again each time.

We can try a few things to remedy this.

One is to disable the reCaptcha for a few days and see if spam increase.

Sould we try that?
