    I say register cause then the leechers will stay away and hopefully the forum will get more users also, not just guests

    In time, the forum will get more users either way, but actually, i think more users will join if you leave it open to read. That way, people can have a look around and see what we're all about, and decide if they wanna sign up. People don't like to sign up before they know what they're signing up for.

    I agree with Marius. At the moment people can look and browse, and then create an account if they decide to be part of the community. If you "force" people to sign up...then 80% of visitors will put it into the "too hard" basket and won't bother.

    In effect - we'll be shutting ourselves out.

    Leave it open. I would be less likely to join a site if it was register only. I know alot of people that would end up doing the same. I figure keep it open so that people have a choice. It will attract more people I figure!

    Register only would be a bad idea!

    Keep it the way it is, therefore we will proceed to get more people joining instead. If you make everyone register only then we won't be seeing a lot of people because some people will just get too lazy to register.

    Hands down, I think it's great the way it is.

    It doesn't matter if you make register only or not, the thing is people need to listen to the radio
    Don't be Affraid, let yourself go, do what you like and blame it on the DJ!

    I would like to leave it open until the listener base is up a bit more. You need people to know what afterhours is all about and what makes this station different from others. It also makes the DJ's here more accessible too. Guests can read up on what their favorite DJ is posting. Closing the forum like you suggested will drop the exposure with the search engines as well.

    Cheers,

    i agree, to keep it open for the meantime is a good thing.
    could (i guess) restrict access to certain parts of the forum should it become necessary to unregistered people. but for now i say, if it aint broke, dont fix it
