[Will, Ushahidi] I dropped my update earlier but I will unfortunately not make it to the huddle tonight as I had to have a number of fillings and I can currently only make garbled noises :)
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Alright. Thanks Will
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Sorry about the slow response on the PR - answered your question now. I'll do a review later today hopefully

[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] @all the event venue was only available on September 30, so we have moved the launch event to the evening of Wednesday, September 30 at the National Theatre. I will change all documents to reflect this date and will continue to beat everyone over the head with it :)

[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] on the site we have "sign up for early access" of hosted ush v3, is that something we're going to honor? Are we going to send out an email to that list before the official launch?

[Brandon Rosage, Ushahidi] I think we should, if the devs think the tech is ready. We'll have the communication (email) ready in the days before launch.

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @all what do we think about dropping 'username' from platform users? making login email + password ?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] requiring a username for new cloud users is a bit clunky..

[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] @robbie I prefer email for log-in as it's easier to remember. But we should give a user the option for "display name" in case they don't want their email to be public
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] if i remember correctly, that's what we had planned for in the mockups too. Email for log-in, username displayed publicly
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Yup. Currently we have it a bit muddled:
  • we have display name (though the client calls in full name in some places)
  • we have email
  • and we have username
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] you can *only* log in with username
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I think we should:
  • remove username, and use email instead
  • make the 'display name' label consistent

[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] yup agreed
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Especially since I just realised you *can't* use an email as a username.. fails our current validation
