I don't think it's a good idea.  I wonder what's the comparison of online readers for Kaiteur versus Stabroek?  I don't think most folks would want to create an account just to be able to read.

Will run in this mode for a week for analytical purposes. Social media requires log in to read and post. Forums can be members only to read and post or World where everyone without out membership read.

Some people getting edgy ,they can't read what is posted here .Regarding Stabroek News ,to my mind ,it's more popular and fair news media ,they also have very active comments section for articles ,run by the platform Discuss ,which requires login,i am a member ,periodically will post on SN, the moderators are very strict .

Kaiteur News have the same comments feature by Discuss ,it's dead as door nail.

Notice any change on the forum ?  Learning internals  setting .

What's your thoughts of the current setting ,members have sign in to read forum posts . It's temporary ,wanted to see how many members read the post .

What is there to hide that members have to sign in to read the garbage some of your members are peddling here? I read the damn thing and it make no sense. 

 

Administrators and Owners do seek input and assistance from members on improvements for a forum.

I have lots of inputs for admin but you wouldn't like to hear them. One of my input it to get new ownership. Django is power hungry and dictating for everyone. He ask for balance of opinions, yet he ban members for their independent views.

Going against my promise here.

My suggestion is that you restore the previous settings for Political and require that a sign in for Bollywood for a few days and see what the traffic looks like. The Political forum is the one most frequented by members. Doing the above will allow you to gauge the level of interest in the bread and butter forum which is Political. You do have to let it run like that for a few days to get a fair representation of the viewers habits/interests.

Deal done and will remain until given to someone who are interested. Regarding power hungry and banning ,give some reasons why any member should be abusive towards my self.

There are 210 Members on the Forum ,let's assume they read without signing in ,in the current settings they will have to sign in ,also visitors who are interested in the Political Forum will have to become a member ,to read the views.

It's like Sams ,Costco and BJ's ,membership needed to make purchases .

Too many Western Union and barrel shipments for Guyanese. GCDF don't even have a membership fee and they complain for anonymous posting.   

Since taking over ,haven't had much time to inspect members registrations ,having taken a detailed look ,found some members with multiple handles. Me thinks this is dishonesty ,handles will be removed ,only one will remain .

Caution will be taken on members who uses VPN ,there are no problem using VPN for internet browsing ,using it to register on the forum to create multiple handles is unacceptable.

Including Bollywood, but.....India is awakening to their citizens departed  to other countries and replaced slaves on sugar cane plantations. More Indians in India  are asking for information and photographs are posted in museums  across India, regarding Indian Indenture Labourers in Guyana and other countries.  

India Indians don't give two sh-ts about us. Like you probably smoked up with Cain and replace Africans with Indians.

Terrible idea. An other forum that I visit has however come up with a good half way house system. None members get to see adverts on the forum that they cannot switch off. Members who log in can switch off the adverts.
There is also an Exclusive Members Club section, granted membership access by invitation only. There members can discuss controversial issues away from preying eyes.
