So it looks like it's possible to permit users who aren't registered yet, or who haven't been confirmed, to participate in forums somewhat. Problem: If you're not even logged in at all, you can't see your own threads even in forums that theoretically let you see your own threads. My intent has been to have some forums (like the abuse forum) not allow unregistered members to see threads by other people, just to provide some search engine bot resistance, but I also sort of want to allow people to post in the is-this-abuse forum without having to register at all. Or possibly a subforum for that. Still thinking about this. Second opinions valued.
