    Basically you buy an opportunity to steal points from another member. So, you might spend 300 pts to buy an attempt to steal, and you might make that back, you might not, or you might steal more.

    Ok.

    Question: Is there an age limit on the lottery, technically I can't play until I'm 18...?

    So are custom user titles available for everyone with 3,000 points or just for subscribers?

    It looks like it's exclusive to subscribers. Check the previous page.

    Why do I need to Log in to see sigs instead of repetitive text telling me I don't have enough posts".. they are hosted externally. Why block something you don't even host for goodness sake.

    Yeah this needs to be fixed, content should never be hidden from users. Don't Give Your Users Shit Work like forcing them to log in to view images. When a text presents that reality, that's your content which is not good.

    Yeah, this is starting to bug me. kwesnoth's signature, for example, looks like a mess when you're viewing it offline.

    Or simply set it up so that you only have to read it once. I'm just saying that it's a bit unnecessary when the same text is repeating itself for every link and image, including emoticons, in everyone's signature.

    That's not a good solution. Why should guest that are reading the forum be forced to do something they may not wish to do? As a web designer you should always say to yourself the things I put on my site is my only content, so having that text there makes it look like that's part of the regular forum content which it isn't. This in turn makes it seem like the forum has worse content than it actually has.

    You should never, ever force readers to take steps to see all your content.
    Other opinions are available.

    I didn't say I agree with it... that's just the solution, and the reason. I say open it all up, and if the content is worth it, then people will register and contribute. Otherwise, your stats are pretty meaningless.

    If I was to give you one piece of advice, it would be this; don't ever consider a career in marketing? You should never, ever force readers to take steps to see all your content. What a load of bullshit. How do you expect websites to stay open and in business if you just give the general public everything on a plate? It makes no sense whatsoever as there'd be no need to join the site then. Hell, while we're at it why don't we just give non-subscribers all the fucking benefits of being a sub? That's the kind of logic you're implying there.

    Loyalty to petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.

    Being able to read posts, etc., isn't the same as them being able to fully utilize the site. Look, when I ran pspforums, then tvg, and irshell.org, there weren't any content restrictions and those were some of the best sites to be on. I didn't have any problems bringing in people.

    The way Tut worded it, though, makes it sound like PSU should just be giving everyone everything. That's a bad marketing stategy as there'd be no incentive to sign up and, ultimately, no incentive for them to subscribe.

    I did not mention the sub section, the sub section isn't the thing primarily getting money to PSU I would imagine. I be the ads brings in a lot more money. Ads are sold by page hits, those hits are the same even if the come from users not logged in i.e guests. So you may as well let the guests view images.

    No not at all, but images and forum posts etc should be available for everyone. If the content is good enough people will sign up just as Fear said. In essence, I think content should be available in the same way it was before this update.

    Might be asked, but what happened to mouse-over topics to see part of #1 post? I'm sure those who know vB know what I'm talking about, but the mouse-over isn't showing the first few lines of the #1 post anymore, and it used to...

    That's very true, what would be the point in coming to the forums if you couldn't experience something that a guest cant? It would be like as soon as you go to Game Stop.com you're automatically a Pro member without even signing up.

    I signed up because I wanted to make a thread to discuss the changed PS3 hardware colors back in January 2006.. not because I wanted to see people's signatures.... your logic makes no sense. What does make sense is this annoying existing members enough to leave.. who else wants to see this stuff when they are not immediately logged in or browsing the forum on another device?

    If you were hosting our sigs I wouldn't care but to block something that is externally hosted.. wow.
