I was looking at the member list, and there are 82,759 members, and (after a bit of searching), I found that there are just short of 8400 members who have MR Member status or greater. That leaves around 78,000 members who are newbie. My guess is that a lot of those members have posted once to get a solution to a problem, and haven't read the forums again. I'm sure some of you know how hard it is to get a user name in places like AIM, Hotmail, even Gmail. The number of available usernames that don't have obscure characters in them are dwindling. I reckon a good solution may be a temporary account system or a guest system. Temporary accounts can be terminated after a set time, like a week or a month, and a guest doesn't have to register anything appart from their email address for email updates. Is this possible with the current vBulletin system? Is it a good concept, even?
