    i feel "guests" on this site should not be able to view anything because they could steal:cursing: how we do things and favorite spots and stuff like that.tell me your opinion.:D
    EDIT (Jan 2, 2011 at 8:37 AM):

    There are private forums for any sensitive information.

    Disallowing guests to view anything would be a terrible idea, because we want people to join the site. If I went to a site that made you register to see anything I'd just leave. Search engines are another big part of people getting here, and if we remove guest access then we wouldn't appear in them.

    Yeah I think it is not good idea, though some areas should remain private

    For what problem? There is no problem with the way things are now. This board isn't meant to be secret in any shape or form.

    To add to that, you can have private conversations between members, or in certain areas, and those aren't viewable by guests.

    As long as its only to some extent, having guests online doesn't really bother me.

    Yes, I agree with Davy, you can choose if the guests can view your profile or if they can't. But if we closed the whole forum secret nobody would come...

    I think it is running just fine the way it is! Who cares who see what....the more the merry....probably the top reason people are joining! Ya know what would be a cool way to find out....is to add that question on the registration form. How did you hear about us? Referred by friend or found us by browsing web? Something in that order!

    Thats why we would have a choce becouse you don't care if they see your profile I don't care but others might so it would be wise to have you be able to chose.
