    Default Big changes coming

    Big changes are coming this weekend. The site may be down for a day or two. Depends on if I can do everything I want on the first try.

    I've accepted an offer-to-buy from USIC1 and he will be the new owner/admin.



    Just kidding.

    Don't be scared. Some of you will like it, most of you won't. Mainly the unregistered lurkers won't like it.

    Okay... Here is what I did. I made it so that people cannot see thread content unless they are registered. This will cut down on the many lurkers that abound. But, all a person needs to do is register and then they have full access. Maybe not a "BIG CHANGE" but it is something to make the Viners feel a bit more secure.

    Which would explain at least one new member I've seen...
    Character is what you are in the dark. It is the things you do, when nobody can see, and nobody will ever know, that define who you are as an individual.

    As soon as the website is loaded on a persons browser they are now a guest. They can still view the website. They can see the forums and the names of the threads but when they click on a thread to view the content they are told they need to register.

    Okay everyone. The big changes were a bust. I think that everyone who was lurking went ahead and signed up. Now they are lurking with a username. So, after looking at my traffic stats I noticed that traffic has dropped in half since I limited the forums. Most people find us by using the search engines and the search engines have decided to cut traffic in half. So, I'm gonna open
    up the forums again to it former status.

    The backroom is still closed to unregistered users, though.
