Community forum - should it be open to guests?

Postby Layla » Sat Nov 24, 2007 6:31 pm

Just a suggestion, but it seems that guests are usually members that forgot to sign in, or who's auto sign-in has failed..... or people who wish to comment on a post without revealing who they are. These comments are often not so nice :? If there is a reason, that's fine, I was just thinking about it the other day :)

Interestingly enough, the moderators can see the ID's of the "guests". Especially if they are members who have forgotten to log on. When their post is mean and they don't go back to reveal themselves. It really does show an aspect of their personality that is not so flattering.

I think the new upgrade chowadmin is working on could eliminate the courtesy "guest" post. It does come in handy when you are not using your own computer and you don't want to log on to a public computer (you might forget to log off). Plus I must say there really is an element of amusement when those members do post as "guest" and have at it.
