Alright, folks, I launch this feature hesitantly because I'm afraid of getting sued, which is why I consulted a
website and put up a Terms of Service.
I added an automatic status checker for Michigan to myLSN.info. You can find it at http://myLSN.info/mich_st.php
Please be sure to read everything, especially the bolded text. Especially the last bolded text. I'll repeat it here:
YOU WILL RECEIVE A MESSAGE NOTIFYING YOU THAT AN UPDATE HAS BEEN DETECTED TOMORROW MORNING REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS AN ACTUAL UPDATE. THIS IS THE SYSTEM DOWNLOADING YOUR INITIAL STATUS. DO NOT PANIC, AND PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANGRY EMAILS.
No angry PM's, please.
Obviously you're entering your information into my database... I think my site is pretty secure, but, hey, shit happens. I'm not responsible if someone finds your email address, birthday, or UMID.
The program checks your status for you, once a day, in the morning, once the program has detected the status checkers have changed for the day. This means you might get a text message at 4AM saying that your status checker has changed. Please don't freak out. This service is optional. If you don't want to receive a text message at 4AM, don't sign up.
Also, the thing tries to detect if you've been admitted, and will indicate so much in the message. However, it may fail. If it doesn't know whether or not you were admitted, it will just say that there was an update.
If there's enough interest and I don't get sued, I'll keep the thing up.
If anything goes wrong - not enough people are interested, someone complains, the University of Michigan asks me to take it down - then it's going down forever, because I don't have time to deal with it.
All that having been said - as always, I hope someone finds this helpful!
