OK, that's true, and I'll leave it up to you to devise a filter to make that go away, shouldn't be too hard, eh? Whistling

Seriously, I sometimes agree with you, the number of surf-by postings is increasing, no doubt about it. (A quick look at my logs shows that I delete something about one in three times I sign on... sometimes more, sometimes less.) And I'd like to know that I'm holding converse with someone with a history, not just a person who's forgotten to log in, that'd be nice too.

So let's take it up with The Fearless Leader. Hail

Kye-u, there was a time when non-members couldn't do more than read the Forums, they couldn't post the kind of pollution that we're starting to see again. I'm not sure what changed your mind, and I suppose it doesn't really matter, what counts is that while there are fewer members posting these days (whazzat mean, that we're finally getting the hang of how to use Proxo? Whistling), I'm pretty certain that the core group is still signing in regularly and reading the latest postings, aren't they? And I'm equally certain that PR and I aren't the only ones who are disheartened by the irrelevent junk.

I think ProxRock's solution is OK, and perhaps even good. On the initial page, let those who wish to remain anonymous do so, but they still have to use a password for the Guest account. That password could change daily (or even more often) via a php script, I'm sure. In fact, now that I think of it, why not use a captcha, I think that'd be do-able, don't you?

This would get rid of the jokers, but let the nameless ones with legitimate questions get in and ask what they need, then they can sit back and watch the answers roll in. If they need to participate further, they can just read the day's password from the initial page, and go to it. Should be easy for them, no? Suspicious

What sayest thou, O Grand Poobah? Drool


An additional word to Guests: The above is intended for those who have a question, not for those who've got answers. If you're "Proxo-minded", then you should be a member of this community, and dare I say it, you should be proud to be building a history of helping others. Fake all the registration info if you wish, but just let us get a handle on who we see is repeatedly helping others, that's all we ask. Please?? Thanks! Smile!
