Default Limit what guests can see?

I know guests on this site can view all (I think) of the forum, I think they should only be able to see a few categories, like the news and announcements section, rules section, webkinz section, and maybe only that. I don't see that there's a reason for them to see the open mike and club sections, because their more for members only, and it could be banned people stalking.

Default Re: Limit what guests can see?

There are pros and cons to limiting what guests can see. I can oly really speak for myself in this case, but I know if I didn't see what the community was like, the discussions that took place, and the information I got for webkinz.... I would have never joined!

Having said that, this is a good place to remind everyone that yes, guests can see what you are posting. Please do not post personal information, please keep it appropriate, and remember to flag things that concern you. We can review the situation then, and resolve the problem.

Guests can see some (not all) of the forum.

Most guests are visitors who may be thinking of joining Webkinz Insider (for the first time). We don't want to discourage them. New members are good and many hesitate a long time before joining.

You're right that some might be banned members stalking, but that will be a small minority. Perhaps they are banned temporarily and looking forward to the day they are reinstated?

Default Re: Limit what guests can see?

Guests can't see our signatures, or our profiles. I guess the rule is to not post things where there is too much personal info. Just remember that a guest can become a member in a matter of minutes.. so just always be careful.

Just checked, and they also can not see the Hi I'm Joe section, the GE (obviously) or the results of polls.

I think it should be limited, though it might discourage members into not joining, it is safer.

Well it's not a bad thing if banned members are looking at the forums, they lose the ability to do everything, so viewing isn't really bad, it's the same as if you weren't a member .

It is limited somewhat, but how do you think that it would make it safer if guests couldn't see some things? All they have to do is make an account and then they see everything. A guest is a member in a heartbeat. Don't get too comfortable with every member here either. To be safe, you have to just not post personal info. If you want to keep it a little more personal, write private messages.

Mm, I certainly agree with everyone above me. I know if I hadn't been able to see what the community was like, I wouldn't be here right now

Default Re: Limit what guests can see?

Well, to make concise what others have already said--if there is information you wouldn't want a non-member to see, you shouldn't post it publicly.
