Hey everybody!

I'm new, I was invited by the lovely simplylovely, and I just wanted to say thanks for having me.

One the topic of opening registrations, I'm very conflicted. One one hand, I was in the position of all the people who would like to join to actually contribute, and I read this thread daily, but on the other hand, there would probably be an overflow of spammers and people who really have no idea. I honestly cannot choose.

xoxo me.

I just tied it :p

I said yes because I remember waiting and waiting for regestraitions to open up on some other sight, and how happy I was when they finaly did and I was able to join. I think only for a short while though because it is nice to have it more personal here and have members who you can recognize and have conversations in threads rather than a buch of pointless posts and threads.

Maybe they could make it so that guests could regester but be unable to post anything until they have been on for a certain amount of time? Or is it possible to do that

Do the mods have any intention of removing the zero post members that have been a member for years? A couple of forums I've been on have done a cleanout of zero post members and then after that they opened up registration for a little bit.

Although this is a huge undertaking, it does help with the clutter.

Removing zero post members is not under consideration at this time.

Andy does 'prune' out accounts once or twice a year. The accounts being removed are accounts that have not been used (eg accounts with no posts and no visits to tFS for a very long time).. I'm not certain of the lenght of inactivity but I imagine it's something like 2 years or so..

I think it's been stated multiple times here and in other threads that they have no plans to remove people who have zero posts. I believe it's the number of accounts, not the number of posting members, that counts for advertising and such, correct?

I didn't realise that only a small handful of people had invites. I saw somebody who was desperate for a TFS account, so I thought I'd help her out until I realised..I can't invite anybody. Haha.

press "the request the right to invite" link on the side of the page. Then you apply, and maybe the mods will give you some invites.

I voted yes after reading the first few posts in the thread. Alot more people may register, but most of them probably won't post anything or will on post once.

It's so weird that the poll count has been totally even the whole time. I guess it just shows what a difficult question this is.

I don't know if this has been suggested already - but what about loosening up the invite system, so that existing posters who have achieved X amount of posts automatically get some invites to pass on to suitable people that they know.

If someone has been active enough to post a considerable amount of entries, chances are they've proved they're a decent contributor with genuine enthusiasm for whatever threads they hang out at. If they can bring like-minded people into the circle, so much the better for tfs.

^But that still doesn't help people without any existing connections here. If I'm 'person A' from 'important store B' and I stumble upon tFS after searching google for places to divulge industry secrets, I still can't get an account unless I know someone on the inside.
