Forum visibility for guests

Postby NKF » Tue Dec 13, 2016 6:51 pm

I thought I'd check on the forums with my smartphone to see all the up-to-the-minute hot goss, but I've been getting a blank forum list with a 'Board has no forums' message. I'm not logged in my account on my phone as having to re-log in every couple of weeks was becoming tedious.

I just checked again at home by visiting the forums in a different browser as a guest and none of the forums that are usually to be available to the public are showing up.

I know the Buy/Sell/Trade is members only, but have all the other forums been set to members only?

TFNZ is trying out a few things re: visibility/access in an attempt bring some of our lurkers out of the shadows and bring a bit more activity on the forums.

There will be some tweaking in regards to guest visibility/access over the next few weeks to see what works.

Thanks for your patience!

Hey everyone, I thought TFNZ should try something different in the hope to help cultivate discussions on the board. The mods recently brought to my attention some of the downsides of this early adoption on required login. Things will be reset to the previous state tomorrow as I chat to the mods about ways of updating a few things. Cheers for everyones patience, and please, feel free to PM me on any suggestions.

I take it that Guests are able to comment on the forums without registration?
