Default Allowing guests on the forum again

Either it's the negative karmic influence of Studentis now or Abandonia's days are counted, your pick
The forum has been suffering from a major lack of activity compared to the time before the site was upgraded. Large part of that can probably be traced back to the fact that on the old forum, unregistered visitors could anonymously participate in discussions as "Guests"

All in favor of re-enabling guest posting on the forum... hands up.

I liked the system that was before (Guests posting in Game Discussion and Troubleshooting) and have voted accordingly.

Yes, I would say all "Games" forum:


Except for the Cellar.
That would increase requests, games talking and requests to solve tech problems.

+ Site comments/suggestions
+ Compatibility
(+ Important announcements!)

[edit] With underline, the thread title looks like Allowing quests on the forum again. :amused: [/edit]

*Puts hand up* What Dave said. As long as you have enough mods to back you up. In addition, I propose we look into the slashdot concept of 'rating' fellow users as used on cracked. Except we shouldn't call it karma... Something silly, like Prestige Points? Status?

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you..."

I'm all for allowing them in Games Discussions and Troubleshooting again, however Compatibility might be helpful for many too.
