RE: locked down for the time being.
New users come in to a BBQ forum looking for BBQ,
they look around and dont like it, so they leave...
if the forum requires someone to register just to browse, I wind up with a load of users who visted once and never returned. Same with lurkers.
If qtalk and comp is the only thing open to read, they can come and get bbq info without registering, and adding id's to the user list. BUT...
If they want to join the fun and post or see all the other forums, they will have to register then.
Why Now.. ? alot of media coverage is causing people to come "check it out". Like cahd says, its hit and runs..... If they just come to visit, and see what we do, they see qtalk and comp, they see we are a real bbq forum.. Only if they feel the need to post and want to stick around.. THEN they register.. otherwise they are on their way and we dont have them in our user list.
