Impact of disabling visibility of URLs for non-logged-in users
#1
Thumbs Up 
A week ago, we decided to disable URLs from being displayed for non-logged-in users. This decision was made after the Staff held a discussion, and we decided to wait for 2 weeks before disabling the URLs.

The impact has been very positive for the forum. In the past 7 days, as many as 93 members have signed up for Geeks.FYI. Big Grin

Sure some of them maybe (1 or 2 were) spammers and non-activated users. But we have seen frequent visitors logging in, and some people actually left comments on threads, or clicked "Like" for 1 or 2 posts. Wink

This is exactly why we made the decision. To attract more members, and to also encourage members to contribute to the forums.

Thank you Heart

And as at the 20th December 2017 we have 357 registered members!
Well I guess "the proof is in the pudding" that this decision has had a positive impact.
