I'm a beginner to user experience (and programming) and am interested in feedback on an idea I had for setting up my homepage.
The goal is that a user would enter their information and after clicking "Sign Up", HTML5 geolocation would determine their location. Depending on their location, they would either be able to enter the beta version of my app, create a profile, and get started; or they would sign up and be entered into the database for when the app opened up to more users.
If this is a bad approach I'm curious to know if there are ways to improve. I'd like for this to interfere as little as possible with the data entry though.
