    Default open membership?

    is it about time we change the membership rules on the forum?
    having a vouch for system would weed out all the pratts out there!!!

    whats your view???

    yeah it should go back to what it was - recommend a user only for new sign-ups.

    Why should we let a few dicks spoil it for the rest ?

    I do periodicaly close the registrations when we get too many idiots but Im sure you too have also been in the position of trying to reg somewhere only to find its closed .Its a pain.

    Also its easier for me to ban dicks like butthead than it is for him to fill out all the registration details again. They get tired of it sooner or later.
    There are 3 types of people in the world - those who make things happen, those who watch things happen; and those who wondered what happened.

    I have to say I agree with the open membership situation and then, as 4me2 said, close it for periods when needed.

    It does make a lot more work for admin that way but I would have to believe it's worth it when we get quality new members.

    yeah, dont limit it or put restrictions on. They did that at another forum i was on. They set up a newbies section so you could only post in the 3 newbies forums until someone decided to let you out. As a result, no-one signed up and if they did they didn't stay long because all the good forums were blocked so the site all but died.
    Since then, they've tried loads of different things and have no just reverted back top an open membership. So just leave it open and save all the hassle
