Well, I propose we address this by getting together and inventing a  
messaging system which allows a user to message another and wait  
sometime for a reply. Really the system should also allow offline  
message storage/delivery. :)

This is a sensible option for those who choose not to use the wiki  
but I don't see a requirement to reopen apps...Matthias didn't  
complete the very first step because he forgot, he can reapply at  
Easter when I suspect I'll forget to reapply myself. It's  
unfortunate, but ultimately human error.
