Should forum posting be members only?

Postby pennymachines » Thu Dec 06, 2007 5:41 pm

A poll in response to this feedback.

Should forum posting be restricted to registered and signed-in members only?

Currently the forum is configured so that "Some forums should require members to be signed in before posting."
Specifically the Feedback, Open and Auction forums allow posting by non-members and members who have not signed on.

Posting images is restricted to signed-in members (and will remain so).

Note: this poll is open to all (members or not) but permits only one vote.

I voted in favour of Guest posts. I think anonymous posts are better than no posts at all.

Edge of their seats with indifference if you ask me..... they must have missed the bit about £10 via Paypal for voting!

Not much response. Maybe only a few care.
"All but the Open Forum should require members to be signed in before posting" leads by one vote at the moment, so to show your votes count - the Open Forum is now the only one that allows unregistered posting.

I'll leave the poll open and will change permissions again as votes demand.

Happy Christmas!
