"Computer Stuff" Forum Now Open to Guests

GUESTS AND MEMBERS CAN POST HERE. Got suggestions re frankforums? Want me to create another forum, or pin a topic? Got a problem? PM me or put Problems or Suggestions in those Admin SUBforums. SUBforums are open, not on moderation.

Posts in main Admin forum go on immediate moderation: for spambots frequent this, the first-created frankforum. So I'll be the only one to see you post, here. If you want me to make your post VISIBLE, say so and I will.
Forum rules
GUESTS CAN POST in this forum WITHOUT JOINING. No one will see your post except me, so let me know if you want it made visible, in your post. That way you can message me in secret, if you want. The Problems and Suggestions subforums are for members only and not hidden.

Not moderated, so you are on your own. Spambots and stalkers and anti-semites will be deleted and banned without notice. Else, try to be thoughtful, protect your own privacy, don't swear much (makes one appear infantile), but I won't censor. POLICE YOURSELF. Substantive posts display maturity, even when being extremely critical.

"Computer Stuff" Forum Now Open to Guests

Postby brainout » 13 Nov 2015, 16:59

I just changed the permissions of the 'Computer Stuff' master forum, to allow guests to post without joining. The subforums remain the property of members only. The idea is to allow a general computer posting by guests, so they can get comfortable with the idea they are anonymous and free to say whatever they want.

The phpBB Board features don't track, so there's no way to allow you to edit your posts until you are a member. Once a member, you can edit or delete or change anything in any of your posts at anytime.

Part of what 'advertises' a forum as being open to guests, is its skin. I changed the skin to orange for all forums where guests can post (Admin, VoteOnWin10, now ComputerStuff, Presidential Election). If you don't like that skin color, let me know what's preferable. There are eight choices: black, charcoal, medium gray, dark blue, turquoise blue, orange, brown/beige, and teal green. I can't get more skins than that, right now. Default is the turquoise. Members can change the skin but these open forums have an overriding skin color.

Not sure how the orange looks on your device, so do let me know what you prefer? Thank you for your time!
