Write articles without an account?

Postby Bart202 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 3:57 pm

Hey, what would you think of the right for guest's to write articles and discuss with us ? Wouldn't that be possible ? What's the problem here ?

As far as I remember the code you have to give in is really difficult to do :P |D

Hi Bart202,

what are you talking about ? Are you talking about article in the Trac wiki ?

Btw, in our days, spams in forum and wiki sites are a real business for some people so I really care to not give any anonymous access to them. Honestly, I don't think creating an account in the forum to be able to write an article has a such big cost.

But now you manage to access the trac site, we're just looking for your articles ;)

Yes, i meant the forum. But what I saw the most persons have an account here but just read. Ye, it's your decision what you give rights for. I just rembembered my first days here in forum. I read at first 1,5 years here and then i created an account. An other problem here (on the forum) is that the most people, just newcomers, doesn't understand which part of the forum is for what. I personally don't understand what you are talking sometimes about if you quote program parts.

I will give my best to report some bugs, just for the game :)
Most players doesn't have a account here, my post was the reaction thereto. Maybe to make it easier for them. I saw these business - spam too but what's the problem if you give rights to active members to delete unwanted posts ?

I also had the idea to manage tournaments here in the forum. All I would need for that would be a forum part. I can tell you about my ideas and plans in private chat if you like.

Let's have some fun gunners. :twisted:

Bart, also to read your Facebook pages linked in your signature I'd need to login. With the obvious difference that I'll never trust Facebook enough to register ;-)

Hey Biondo, nearly all players are there, we have around one hundret members there. It's interessting to see their opinions :P

In my opinion facebook is totally secure, just register with a name Bio Ndo or something like that. Just turn location services off. It's your decision, all in all the internet got more secure than it was ten years ago in my opinion.

No, anonymous users will lead to some sort of spam here, like in the old forum or the old trac sourceforge. Just imagine then the amount of work to clean that kind of behavior.
I am waiting for the "captcha use" reation. This system is just a pain in the *** to use and is not even secure (20% of success with google captchas; or simply pay people to complete them).

About facebook, which is my real intention to post here, just read what the Free Software Foundation said here: http://www.fsf.org/facebook.

I have to contradict you here, Barto. Captcha is sure a pain in the ***, but in Boilerplate it blocked 8051 submissions in few months (I had only to delete manually 5-6 messages that passed the filter).
