Input fields should be checked before processing. Also, it would be a good idea to check the correctness of .htpasswd before and after processing.
Indeed. The whole bulk registration process is in need of some tlc.
Bob's analysis is spot on w.r.t input fields, so changing status to Actioning. The integrity of .htpasswd might also be checked before and after every change, though it is less critical and I suspect we will find it hard to find anyone prepared to code that check. Any volunteers?
I made the same validation process as is used for online registrations apply to bulk registrations as well. I believe this is sufficient, so marking as done.
