Post Before Viewing Feature

Post by Beejayad on February 7th 2010, 8:40 am

So I was thinking of something and I came across with this. In forums, there are forum lurkers who only view posts and not post at all. They just lurk around. What if once they login to the forum, they would be redirected to a thread, specifically a Sign in thread? They would post there and say that they signed in. They won't be able to leave the thread until they post and after they post, that's the only time they can view the whole forum. What do you guys think?

Well it could be added. I don't mind this feature.

But i have seen many users not posting because they want to observe the forum rules, etc things. If a user is forced to do something, it could give a bad impression of the forum.
I would rather let the users take their own time to post. So in my personal opinion, even if such a feature is ever added i will never use it.
