Should The Site Be Open Or Closed
Posted 31 August 2004 - 04:21 AM
I have started a new topic for this as I'm sure other people will want to have their say ( SEE JACK AND ASTRIDS POSTS IN HELP DESK )
It's a difficult one this, pros and cons for both sides. To keep the for sale area open is beneficial to sellers, none members can see, join and buy. The database is a good advertisement for the site but must have taken a lot of hard work to build up, why should none members be able to use it without making a contribution to the site, as Astrid says people do copy and use
Perhaps a vote of members would be best.
Over to everyone else......

I also know that the more areas are non-public the less advertising is possible for this website.
But where's the problem to register ? Everybody can do, it's easy & it's free.
On the other hand ... how to avoid that someone who only wants e.g. to 'steal' the pictures cannot register ? That's impossible. That would mean the administrator/s will have to do too much control work. It is easy to get a new e-mail address just to register here, so you never will know who's behind that address ...
I think this is a two-bladed sword.
And, yes, I think a poll would help here.
