    It is true that some new restrictions have been added. It's not true that you can't browse at all while not logged in, however after a specific amount of browsing as a guest, a prompt will start to appear to suggest that you register or log in. You are ten allowed to more browsing, but eventually if you do not register or log in, you will no longer be able to see the forum.

    You mention that true traffic is always reduced. I can only say I hope so. We have about 20 visitors to every registered member. These visitors contribute nothing to the forum. As far as a search feature for unregistered guests, the only site I've seen that on are big corporate sites that can afford expensive server solutions. Every search adds significant server load, so allowing non contributing guest to search will never happen here. Why would we lessen the experience for our members?

    If you want to browse just a little, don't worry about logging in. This has nothing to do with privacy.


    Different issue BFISA. The cookie issue had to do with the forum not logging you out properly.

    My apologies Toby. I didn't mean it like that. I was just pointing out that this was a different issue.
