Changes to Guest priveleges
« on: January 20, 2008, 08:19:44 PM »
As I announced not long ago, the board is once again viewable to guests. However, after some thought I've decided to keep the Contributions, Art, and Game Room boards blocked to guests. Of course, the obvious reason for this is that those boards contain member contributions that can be stolen and/or duplicated. The other reason is that I hope that the inability to view those boards will drive more guests to register.

The Game Room actually falls more under the second reason.  ;)

Seems to me that it would be an incentive to join.  :unsure:

In light of the changes that have occurred recently I've decided to once again allow guests to view everything, EXCEPT the Contributions board. And again, that's because I don't want unknown people having complete access to people's contributions.
