I see people registering already, so it appears to be working.

Its not like you have to give out your social security number or anything to register. :)

True, but I'm sure theres some other people out there who like to browse the forums before they register. I mean would you buy a car without test driving it first? Well so long as you weren't filthy stinkin rich and didn't give a damn? Besides I still see 24 guests on the forums, more on then members. So it looks like it didn't completly work there. :razz:

I noticed that too, it could just be members who aren't logged in. I think it would definitely add more members.
If I come to the site on my own, I'm auto logged. If I take a link from somebody, I'm not, and I usually don't notice till I try to post. They may be what's happening. I don't think there is anything wrong with guest peeking in, if they want to post, they have to register.

I actually made it so that they can see the forums list and even see what posts are in a forum but when they click on a post it tells them to register :)Also, remember the "whos online" is only updated every 5 minutes so it could be lurkers in cycles. If they leave, it takes 5 minutes for vBulletin to realize it and remove them from the list.

I actually hate forums that make me log in to see posts. I refuse to sign up for 80 million forums just to see posts about Madden (like operationsports, sportplanet, maddennation, maddenmania, etc etc...)

what he said. I think this is the right way. They can see the forums, they can see the threads, hell they can even mouse over preview a thread, but they can't click *into* a thread till they register. I think that's fair. They can take a few seconds to create an account, even if it is as BigballedBobby or whatever.
