    Lightbulb Forums Feature / Permissions Request

    Is there any way that the "Places to Shoot" forum could be made available to Members only and not to Guests?

    There is some concern among some members that we ought to keep that info private.

    Thanks for the consideration -

    Additional request-

    Since it really is for Members only, I'll add the "Feedback" section -

    Thanks

    I don't care who sees the feedback section. Just cause a guest might not use it doesn't mean there's any reason to limit it. And what if they want to buy something, register to do it, and because that forum wasn't visible before they don't check it now and end up having a problem with the seller?

    +1 on Places to shoot though

    How's restricting this section going to keep it private? Membership is free and open to everyone. If a guest wants to read that section they'll just become a member.

    Forum Admins can set the permissions so that only certain forums are available to guests. Otherwise they are only available to registered members.

    These restricted permissions can keep guests from accessing forum sections that the Admins want to keep private.

    Some forums restrict access to Classifieds to members with a certain amount of posts in order to discourage forum trolls from ripping people off (ie they won't invest the time to get their post count up, they will move on to easier pickings elsewhere).

    Definitely above my pay grade around 'deez parts (I'm just a mod).

    I'll defer to the actual site Admins (versus mods) on this one.

    All, I now for sure, is one does have to register to post here. Because every now and then, it says my password has expired, and I can't do anything until I "renew" the password.

    As far as post count restrictions, I'm not sure, I haven't really run across anything like that. But, they way they word some of those things in the admin section, I'm almost paranoid to do anything for fear of having a mushroom cloud erupt from my keyboard.
