(no subject)

Have practically finished the snackiest feature on the Runnymede website, namely the dynamically updated access groups. The ground work is all there - the powers that be can create meta groups based on clan or location (for example) and the system will generate the corresponding access groups based on the data in the database. So (and this is the primary reason/example) if/when a character disappears off into the wilderness, they just mark that character as being inactive or whatever and automagically that character is unsubbed from all the IC mailing lists and can no longer access various chunks of the website.

All that is left to do is add in the various categories - there is strangely a large number of them across all the various venues - and the job will be complete.
