I agree. Discussion forums are for registered members only. I’ll fix this now
Good thinking. I’ll look into it. No promises, tho
I don’t know about this. “…test the water”? Guest posting seems to encourage messages that are ultimately moderated out. Not allowing unregistered guests to post is mostly to save the time of the moderators.
The job listing forums do not allow replies – so allowing unregistered posts here seems “safe” from a time saving point of view.

Not that this is a problem, but I remember it saying something like 66 before the upgrade. There must be a happy medium between guest posting and registration.[/quote]
I do not believe there were 60+ users online back then. I hadn’t fully installed the Google mod, so a good number of those 60+ visitors were probably Google Spiders, and not real people. The full Google mod limits Google to one presence. So the 31 who were online on 12 Dec are probably at least 30 distinct, real people.
I wouldn’t hold my breath for a return of unregistered guest posting on Segue. Not that I don’t welcome guests (far from it), but I value the time the moderators of Segue put in much much more.
I hope that the pre-modded phpBB’s that I post up in the Tech forum these next few weeks will encourage some to set up, administer and moderate their own Taiwan-oriented forums. Btw, there are already a number of pre-modded phpBB installations over at www.phpbbhacks.com if you don’t want to wait for mine (I’ll just be making sure the Trad Chinese language set is in place in my pre-moddeds)
