Temporary Browsing

Post by Casar1973 on June 27th 2010, 6:18 pm

It would be great if one could allow guests to browse the forum for limited period of time and then offer registration to recieve unlimited access to the forum.

Any potential?

Rob

Sure they could - but that is besides the point. Those who return to browse now and then would rather register once than having to change IP every time they surf there - the incentive is aptly distributed in the limited time solution - in my opinion. It is not a "legality" issue but a matter of incentive.

Why not do this manually, Wink

I don't like the idea, mostly because it's a forum & not a limited time offer tool.

How do you mean manually? I canīt see how I could impose time restricted browsing on a guest?

By modifying permissions in your admin panel while guests are online, Wink

PS. Read my first post to know why I voted no.

I think this is useful, and definitely an incentive to register the forum, for the sake of further browsing. From there that could lead to posting. Very Happy

Yes.
