Following on from the vote on anonymous posting after various people have brought it to my attention and having looked through the posts, I think it’s fair to say some anonymous posters having been taking advantage of the forum’s openness.
As promised, I will be implementing what YOU voted for and all users will be required to register to post on this forum by midnight Saturday 8th September.
The delay in implementing this was as it took me a while to figure out how to do it, I didn’t want everyone to register to view the forum, I wanted people to be able to view the forum without having to register and it took a while to find that out!
For those who haven’t registered, it’s very simple, you just need a username, email address and password, you don’t have to wait several days for the registration to approved like other forums, it just takes a couple minutes if that and you can post away!
I would like to thank everyone who participated in the vote and would like to thank all users for their continued support and engagement in this forum including regular guest posters who I would urge to now register!
This does not mean that I’m not open to reviewing this issue again in the future and reverting back to allowing anyone to post.
Once again thank you to everyone who contributes to this forum.
