New to the forum? New accounts have a few restrictions...
Get asked this one quite often.  For security reasons, new accounts have a few restrictions.

You will be unable to:
  1. View profiles
  2. Add a signature
  3. Add a website in your profile
  4. Send private messages (PM's)
  5. Post a URL (link)
This is unfortunate - but necessary in today's world.  After 5 posts - logout and login again.  The restrictions will be lifted.

Any questions or concerns feel free to post in this thread.

Lol - unfortunate phrasing perhaps.  Most of these aren't new, we've had them for some time.  Just thought it was time to get it down in black and white.

Get a ton of questions about this.  Both on the forum and contact page. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Perhaps it may be an idea to restrict the ability to display images too. Also, if the editor provided for new posters is just plain text then that can cover lots of security measures.

We've talked about restricting images quite a bit.  As we speak, not suppressing them for anyone with the exception of legacy attachments.  Because that's a different mechanism.  When we have, for one reason or another, registrations went up - but not participation.  Some folks just want to look at pictures.  But participation is the end goal, and makes this a slippery slope for sure.

Forcing source editor mode (text only) by group is more of a challenge.  All or nothing is easier, but point taken. We have restrictions in place, but for obvious reasons - I'll not get into them here. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Update, Nov 2020:  Images are restricted for guests.

I co-administer a forum and we constantly have a problem with new members getting onto the site to sell non related products or post topic unrelated posts. They quickly get removed but it becomes time consuming. I think we may implement something like what you have done here, good idea! -JEP-

The administrators on here do an outstanding job keeping the unrelated and sometimes disgusting posts out of harm's way. Tip of the hat folks!!
