Only the first 4 forum posts are visible
Only the first four forum posts of a thread are visible to users who are not logged in. Additionally there is no hint that you can see more posts in the same thread if you are a member. I personally like to snoop through other forums to see if there is anything of interest for me. A forum with short discussions is normally boring so I wouldn't bother to register at all, especially if I miss the answer that solves my problem because it is not displayed. I don't know if other users see that different but I don't think so. Please let guests read all of the public content too. btw: Are the google/yandex/microsoft/etc search engine bots members? If not, to them the forum might appear smaller than it is ...
