    Guest Replies???

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by skeloboy_97, Aug 14, 2011.

    I had a thought. What if guests could post a comment on posts, and leave a username. But they are required to leave a name and email address, so they can be tracked down??

    I do not think there is any point to guests posting.

    If they want to post, they can easily make an account and become a part of the community :)

    Yeah, your most probably right. It's just a shame seeing there is always like 145 people that could review your work etc.. but decide not to make an account. :)

    But if they don't care enough to make an account, what makes you think they'll care enough to go through and review your work?

    ^Agreed with hidden. They wouldn't waste their time to review our work without the favor being paid back. At least most of them wouldn't.

    It's an invitation to spam that could not be blocked by banning.

    No chance in hell.
