    What's happened..

    Why do the amount of guests outnumber the number of actual members on iptf.

    My suggestion:

    Make the site unvisitable for people viewing this board as a guest. This will make the forum more active, and more people contributing to the IDevice 'hacking' community(?).

    That's all really.

    haha ya i agree with the above posters.
    some people just prefer to view as a guest simply because they want a simple one time answer.
    no need for signing up for that.

    and off topic.. did you guys know macthemes went private now. thank god i have an account!

    It used to be like this, the site is big enough now that it makes more sense to allow access and only have people that really want to sign up.

    Another good idea that I see on other forums is to not let guests see links for downloads and whatnot.
