Like I said, I really do like the idea, but there would really have to be enough mods to watch that part of the forum...

As much as I am against restrictions of posting and censoring speech... there is one topic that was constantly repeated on the GD forum - warez links!

Members by now mostly know better then to post links - and members can also be informed through PM system or some other means, that linking to warez sites is not allowed... guests who freely post there can not and Abandonia is still very much against spreading games that are protected.

So that is basically my main concern about it... and trust me, there were planety of those links too (I remember when I was one of the moderators in that forum... it was bothersome to say the least).

Cool Makes sense

Let them get a taste of the TS and discussion and If they want to say more they can register.

Guests are now allowed to post in Troubleshooting and Games Discussion forums.

EDIT: As an experiment, also in Requests and Site Comments. If we get too much junk there, it can be always disabled again.
