I always pay my hosting bill (Unlike some Cichlid Forums)... Expect the forum to be up and running 24/7 LoL

Is this a car forum?

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

I think its the link that you posted Yellow-Cichlid. If you type in theexoticfish.com its a fish forum, but your link is to theexoticforum.

A "must register to view forum"? No thanks.

It's to keep guests from hogging up bandwidth by viewing all the images on the site FYI.

You can laugh if you wish. I have been involved in forums for many yrs. There are more people, like myself, that just wont waste their time. You see, what is there to motivate me to join? Many people "lurk" before joining a forum, they read, snoop around and if they enjoy it they may join.

Good luck with that.

If you cant afford to the cost of the bandwidth where you can allow guests to view the site, you are in for a short forum lifespan.

Don't assume I can't afford the cost of bandwidth. I could very well allow guests to view the forum if I wanted, but I choose not to for the reason I listed. I've also been involved with forums for many years. The incentive for joining are contests that will begin soon. You don't want to waste your time to join a forum that takes less than 2 minutes yet you feel the need to continue to post in this thread.

If people don't want to join then so be it, I'm not forcing anyone to do anything.

I've ran many forums as well. Why not just disable guests from viewing attachments? They can still browse the forums that way, but without taking a lot of bandwidth. Just a suggestion, not a knock.

That's a good idea... I didn't think of that.

That will work unless members are using BB code to embed the images in the actual post. ( I am assuming you have disabled HTML in posting, if not do so. It is a huge security issue. )
