Terimology change

Post by roedygr » Tue Jul 01, 2008 3:32 pm

This might be a good time to change the confusing terminology of all the magic numbers you need to download CSEValidator.

I suggest:

account number (instead of registration number)
password (instead of PIN number)
activation key (instead of key)

to bring it more in line with conventional industry terminology.

I have choked many times trying to figure out what to put where. Psychologically, with the current terminology, it looks as if you are asking for more numbers than necessary, that you are punishing your customers with some overly complex security scheme, even though you are not.

Further, allow user to key email address in place of account number without a requiring a notification email.

I hope this could be done in a backward compatible way.

Thanks. I wouldn't mind rethinking the system at some point but it would take time to do it right and in the process (at least in the short term) would probably create more confusion.

I like the big block of code, copy, paste, done.

Your app can pull out the section it needs.
