Hello Honza!

Yes...that is true right now. Anyone can enter a dictionary in  
SignPuddle and scroll down and Register. Once they have registered, it  
is like establishing their own work area, inside the dictionary...they  
need to login using their username and password, every time they enter  
the dictionary to work.

When users are registered and login, they automatically can add their  
own signs, and edit and change only the signs they have entered...

We can also provide "Editor" status upon request. Editors can change  
and edit other people's writing too...But that is usually a small  
number of people who are Editors for the entire dictionary.

So right now, a registered user can add and edit their own signs, just  
as you mention the public SignPuddles.

We also have private WebPuddles, for private group projects, that work  
a little differently. Only private users can enter and use a private  
WebPuddle...who can enter is determined by the leader of the group....

Val ;-)
