    but we can limit it. coz theres like 300 guests at the moemnt.

    or limit it at certain times.
    Why should it be limited? 300 guests and maybe 100 members isn't a lot of people and a decent server should be able to cope with that fine. The problem is there are far too many functions enabled that are pretty much pointless, especially for guests, which exhaust the server.

    Ways to improve this have been posted over and over, the mods agree, but nothing seems to be done about it. Although we are told that there are changes coming.

    Limiting guests goes completely against the aims of this forum, in my opinion.

    No it aint. Eventully one of the mods will get wise and deteate this thread.
    Why? It isn't really spamming or anything (although it is getting cloe to that now with some of the posts).

    Hardly. Its not anywhere near even 100 posts yet, so its hardly taking over.
    Agreed. The only thread that has taken over UKL is the Harry Potter thread.

    We have tried to do this before, and the mods just said that they cant ban guest as they fill up the empty spaces when not many people are on.

    Should we ban guests? this is getting crzy.

    lets make a rule.

    only members allowed
    Ok, you make a rule.

    Now how are you going to implement it? You can't just turn up and start making rules!

    No, we can't ban guests otherwise we won't get any new members. Alot of our members come from google, and if we stop guests, we stop the googlebot from searching the forum.

    But then, is it more important to get new members, on an already strained system, or is it more important to let existing members use the forum?
