    This might be a know issue, but if you not logged in you can't see any threads started by a moderator (member of staff).

    This appears to be true for the front page and when selecting 'recent posts'.

    No problem if your a member, but anyone viewing the site, potentially applying for membership, can't see all recent topics.

    We can investigate that Ed to see if it is an issue. If there are a certain element of content not visible to visitors, I'm not too concerned as the answer is for them to join. I'll have a look just in case though.

    Thanks for bringing it up.

    Just thought visitors might miss out on threads that might interest them and entice them to join.

    I think it's a double edge sword Ed. If everything is visible ...... why bother joining. Some members never post at all and only want to view. It's a difficult one I think. No right or wrong. :avatar:

    If you don't join, you can't ask questions or comment on what's being discussed.

    Not my area of interest, but a lot of the O gauge and kitbuilding threads are probably not visible to visitors.

    Your call Toto, just thought I'd mention it :thumbup:

    No worries Ed.

    We can always review our policies as we evolve and these things can change from time to time if we think necessary. I am always up for these points to be brought up and highlighted again as it does make me think and then ask myself ...... is it due for a change of thought. All very healthy Ed. :thumbs:
