bcrypt is the better choice. (Almost anything is a better choice, in fact.) PHP 5.5 has password functions that make it simple; there is a userland implementation for PHP 5.4 and earlier. Highly recommended.

I was just trying to get some people submitting data to the database and see if it could handle it… I was not trying to pull people away from this community at all.

I didn’t mean to accuse you of anything. As I said, I don’t believe you had any ill intent.

Once it becomes obvious that the basic functionality works as expected (and I think it does), you won’t typically discover more through usage until you hit a much larger scale: while 1,000 users will probably discover all kinds of stuff “by accident” under normal usage, 10 or 15 users probably won’t. A code review would probably be more helpful at this stage.
