    Should users register before visiting this site?

    Well, just looking at the Wc3 section, there are 120 users viewing the section; 4 members and 196 users. Most people just download what they want and be on their way. Perhaps they should be forced to register so this site can grow instead of the occasional download and leave?

    Yes, but they should also have to register to view forums imo. Way too many leaching and not enough members actually committing.

    We have had this discussion before way too often already.
    People who want to be active will be. Even if they have to register first will not make them being active.

    No problem
    Maybe someone else is willing to put his opinion in here. I'll leave it open for the moment.

    tbh I always thought it was a pest that non-users can view links. Imo, you should have them register in order to see links. Even if they might not have the initial thought of becoming active, they might reconsider it when they actually joined. Who knows? I think we won't lose anything if we do it like that.
