1) The Email address box could parse these as equivalent:
Excellent idea. It's on the TODO list.
Hmm. I'm a little surprised that the HTML wasn't escaped in the message itself. Anyways, the text box should be HTML and you should be able to enter HTML in the invite message. I've put it on the TODO list.
3) This is an edge case, but in testing I invited an address, accepted via email, then removed that new member. A second attempt to invite the address gave me the error "Already invited". Sure enough, the address still showed on the "Outstanding Invitations" tab, but if I hadn't thought to look there I wouldn't have known what to do.
Right, I'm not sure the best way to handle this. Right now, invites stick around forever, regardless of what the invitee does. Rescinding the invitation just deletes the invite record from the database, it doesn't affect the invitee's subscription, if there is one. So the moderator can 'maintain' the invite list this way. But perhaps some automation would help.
4) The "Send Again" item does not appear to work. It unchecked the box but gave no other indication of sending another invitation. Nor was another received. Probably related to the above edge case. The "Rescind Invitation" action removed that address from the list and allowed me to send a new invitation.
Ugh. I looked the code, and found the following:
// send it again. TODO
So it does nothing right now. Oops. Sigh.
5) The "Password" lacks a second box to confirm the password. Oops?
Yeah, I'm not sure. I don't ask to verify email addresses either. A friend of mine who is in user interface thinks I'm crazy for not asking for verification. But I hate having to type everything in twice. What do you think?
I will fix the invite issues this week.
