    Default Me again with another question

    I just logged out to check what is visible to guests, and it seems that absolutely everything is.

    Could consideration be given to closing some boards to non-members - perhaps at the very least the off topic and (for example) swap sign-up threads?

    It might even encourage some of the lurkers to register and join in as well

    No you can't Em, but I have this odd thing about preferring to know (even if they're just made up names on a list) who's reading some things. The informative stuff and on topic threads are fine, it's the chattier ones that bother me somehow. It's pretty standard practice on boards for chat threads to be closed to non-members.

    I agree.

    I also think it would be useful if only members were able to view our profile info too.

    What do others think about this? Or is this me having a 'mild paranoid attack' !

    I agree with this as we like to keep our mystique from potential customers and lurkers.

    Jules, I hadn't realised they could see profiles. Now that I really don't like - makes me glad I don't have any personal info on there.

    Please don't tell me they can view the member list as well?

    if you go into profile and profile privacy you can make some things private to members only

    Hiya,
    I just logged out too and they can view the members list. Now I don't like that at all On other forums you have to have registered to view the members list.
