    Default Possible changes to members area

    Real-Debrid

    Regarding lost passwords for the members area and the time it takes me to answer the request, which by then the user has long logged off. Would it be easier if it just became available for everyone who has reached the required number of posts and made invisible to guest and users who fall short?

    In short it would mean that no password was needed to enter this area.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Can it not be done where you type the password in once and when you log on it is open to you.
    One of the other forums I'm on does this, it's a closed forum, but you needed to be a member of a national Shooting Org with membership number to be given the password to access all of the forum, the rest of the forum is available to the other members.

    This is my suggestion Brian. You log into the forum once with your normal username / password combo and it automatically becomes available the entire time youre logged in. Only guests, search engines and members who dont post cant access this area.

    I'm not particularly bothered either way, I am just trying to make things simpler for you guys.

    This is looking like a resounding keep the password result. Im surprised with that
