So i noticed there are currently 25 guests and 11 members on the site...Should we make it so you have to register to browse? I hate when sites do that, but it would be nice to convert some lurkers into registered members, maybe they can view the front page with the forums and threads but to click into a forum you have to register... thoughts?

I noticed that too, it could just be members who aren't logged in. I think it would definitely add more members.

Ya you should let them see the front page with topics, so they're interested, but make them have to register. Good thinkin' :!:

Ok, i have my settings so i auto log in, I assumed most did that to avoid having to log in each time. I guess if you share a computer it wouldn't be good. I'll see if Apulo can switch it. You can lurk, just join the community and lurk. :)

It is done. You must be a registered member to browse the forums.

I think that might turn people off though. I mean when I joined G4 I browsed the forums for a few weeks if not a few months, I forget how long exactly. Part of that was because I was already posting at another message forums, but also because I wanted to see what things were being discussed to see if it was wirth my time. Now on this you can't even see what forums are on here without registering so personally I think that will push people away because they might not want to right away. Just my two cents.
