Ok I think that we should have it mnade so that you have to be registered to look at certain forums for instance the babe forum. there are always way to many guests in there and like 4 members this is prolly gunna get shot down by those who are higher but it worth a shot. Look at this there were 17 guests and 4 members!
that is the case in quite a lot of the forums in these parts we freqently have lots of guests compared to members. but mabey for babe. mabey it would be an incentive who knows :/
Ya that is what I was thinkin
well how do you not know that those are members that signed off before going there as they didn't want to get caught there :D
i don't know whether it can be done, but in the case of the babe forum imagine this: you are unable to view the forums and the enclosed images of 'hot' babes; but if you go to Google and type 'hot babes' on a search it brings up:
GoogleResults 1 - 10 of about 3,690,000
why would you bother to register in order to gain access when there are 3.7 million sites where you don't need to go through the hassle of registering?
Why would a guest join just to see the babe forum anyway?
I don't see this happen since it is against the entire purpose of Gaming Forums; at least how I see the forums. Gaming Forums is here for the good of everybody and you don't have to be a registred member in order to benefit from the ideas, pieces of advice and opinions offered here. If we close off certain areas of the forums (apart of course from the staff forums), we are more or less forcing people to register in order to benefit. I see Gaming Forums as a place to go if you have soemthing on your heart or need something. Also, unregistered members can't posts so we don't have to worry about them breaching the forum rules.
I would think that people register because they want to post/ participate. Isn't that the way it should remain?
