Question a possible solution to 'unregistered' posters

hello all,

ive noticed that there are alot of people starting new threads or posting replies to current threads as 'unregistered'.

ive also noticed that if you post a reply or start a new thread as an unregistered or current member your I.P. address is logged.

maybe cliesource can implement a process whereby it tracks the IP address and only lets you post as unregistered for only a few times then prompts you to register.

this would solve several issues.

1. Cliesource would have more registered users
2. People would have to stand behind their word by letting us know who they are
3. Potential flamers would have more 'trouble' posting replies.

of course this wouldnt solve the situation where people post replies from several different computers, however most of us post replies from the same computer.

what does everyone think?

I'm all for reducing the number of unregistered posts. While some are good and helpful, people often use it as a method to troll. I do see one drawback of this scheme though. Most people have dynamic rather than static ips. Unless you leave your machine on all the time, you'll often have a different one when you turn your machine on. Also that's even more true for dial up users. Posting the IP of the user under unregistered may not be a bad idea though...at least have _some_ level of accountability.

use cookies then. This site dumps heaps of them on us anyway - one more wouldnt hurt. It may not stop it but it will reduce it because alot of people have them enabled and do not ever clean them out as they have too many for sites that they log in to. BUT - we shouldn't disable it altogether. Why? here is why:
http://www.cliesource.com/forums/sh...2615#post183469. This developer was just protecting himself. He wasnt running from his own posts.

True.....just let the unregistered post, there really is no solution to make everyone happy and its a rare few that cause any troubles and hell they could just register and cause the same troubles, does anyone know______. Rather your unregistered or not you can troll - just let them be.

Why even let them post any amount of times unregistered then. You might as well make registration required if you are going to mandate it after a few posts.

I agree with mrdeucie. I feel if one is going to create a new thread, or reply in a post, it should be done as a registered user. Keeps things simple. I do believe if you want to send me a PM ..... you should be a registered user ... so as not to receive 'spam' messages ... same for posts.

As many have seen over time, some unregistered users simply like to create 'trouble' or stir people up. That seems to be, at times, their goal. They can hide behind the 'unregistered' mask.

To post on this site should be a priv ... not a 'right' by any tom/dick/harry. If I am a 'bad' user ... the site should reserve the right to revoke my login and not allow me to post anymore.

Keeps everyone a little more 'honest'.

i totally agree...

make everyone who wants to post on the site accountable by registering. i doubt that will happen though

i just thought that maybe cliesource could look at a balance between the two
