Would it be worthwhile to include a reply count on the main page.

Does this board support guest accounts? I know the RHDNBot is a guest, but can the general public post as guests? That might be something worth checking out on down the road; some people don't like registering and giving out their emails and all that jazz.

The problem with allowing guests is that it's too easy to abuse the right. I can understand why it may be useful, but more often that not it's used by people looking to either spam and/or attack others without revealing their identity.

Yes, adding replies may be a worthwhile option to add.  Seeing a bunch of 0 replies may deter someone from clicking the link though. Of course seeing a higher number encourages it.  Let's see if anybody actually uses this board section.  If they do, I have no problem adding it.  It's easy as pie.

The board certainly does support Guest accounts, however I agree with Grave Wisdom. Allowing guests to post and having immediate activation are all nice in theory, but the sad fact of life is, people abuse the system. It's been proven time and time again on many boards. Anybody with something intelligent to say will take the time required to register.  That's my line of thinking anyway.  If they don't want to take the few minutes to register, I don't want to take the few minutes to help them or consider anything they have to say.
