This poll seems a odd, as only registerd members can vote.

The forum has loads of zero posters which are just taking up space, so i think having guests post would help in places.

I think it might be better if the person who ran the forum could choose whether they wanted it or not. The only disadvantage I see is that people can post all sorts of spam and abuse it. We could always just have an inactivity policy, if you don't use your account for 30-60-90 days or whatever, you lose it.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

Having the user chose would require a forum mod, which would just be lost when 2.0 comes out.

There is an inactivity policy for 30 days. I should realy give things a check for this...

I dont think there will be a mass onslaught of guests. But there will be occasional members not logged in.

30 day inactivity is for hosted sites, nothing to do with the forums.

No ones been deleted yet. Unless the database becomes to huge to download no-one will ever be deleted. S, people can go on vacation without worry.
