Once again, guests posting is the cause of spam. Check this out on the Only War forums:

And I wiped the thread. Honestly, this kind of thing doesn't deserve a place in Revora forums. MM still haven't updated Revora forums with IPB 2.1, so we can't install any visual confirmation mod which would wipe this kind of plague forever.

Well atleast it caught the attention of someone ;).

So when IPB 2.1 comes along, the whole guest posting issue will be resolved?

Advertising spam should be cut down. We will be upgrading when the infrastructure is in place for us to upgrade (ie necessary scripts will be updated).

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.

I am thinking make a guest posting area where guests can only post to and members can also reply to them there.

It's a waste of time knocking when there's nobody home, Prime. But for what it's worth, me and half the forum or more agree with you.

Seconded.

ARGUMENT FROM CREATION, a.k.a. ARGUMENT FROM PERSONAL INCREDULITY (I)
(1) If evolution is false, then creationism is true, and therefore God exists.
(2) Evolution can't be true, since I lack the mental capacity to understand it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be uncomfortable.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

I think guest posting should be allowed.
EDIT But this issue was already discussed some time ago I think.
You already knew my opinion :grin:.

Dlish: All the admins know guest posting is the path to god. The admins are brain-washing the staff into beliving this. And in time, the staff will brain-wash the masses with the word of guest. Then all will be belivers.

English: Guest posting is good of new users to 'try before they buy'.

It would be spam if he posted the normal post and then posted the translation below it. :grin:

And you know where I stand on guest posting still.

Well for one I hate it if I have to register to make ONE post.
And I'm not even mentioning the places that require registerment to view.
Because that was the only reason I needed a new password for all my accounts. Because it had leaked out.
I do not give my normal password to forums I don't really know or trust, for registering. Meaning that I have to think up a second or third password for all forums whom I'm fairly new to.
I have an account on PPM, (registered only so a could view a certain thread), I view some things occasionally, but I have never posted anything. Aren't such accounts just cluttering up the database?
I like to try things out before I use or buy them. I usually play a demo before buying the game.

Wait, isn't PPM run by the man behind the Great Crusade Against Against Guest Posting, the Banshmeister...?

It's run by Banshee afaik, but I could not view the thread without registering.
Perhaps it was in a member resticted area or something.

LOOL

Yet banshee opposes all guest posting. He'd have guests see the Staff board (and post in it) if he could get away with it... :sleep:
