    there should be something like a comment box offered in the forum, for non regitered users which have a quick question, suggestions or something like that, because a lot of people just plop in for a certain rom, know what i mean? this waves of noobs which come along with the release of new epic roms of grand games series, just to drive tempers nuts' and after be satisfied by a fix release all what's left are masses of dead accounts, isn't this contra prodictive? so it would be helpful to prevent this spamflows, though about it?

    It could just end up with the comment box being spammed instead.

    And when people don't respond to such messages they'll sign up to the forum anyway.

    it could, but it don't have to, logical that not all posts can be responded if there are way to many of those, though it is a possibility for those who have a serious question and won't necessarily join into the community just for this one temporery question. im sure that they would be helped out with useful suggestions by tempers:.

    You expect too much of people.

    Whether there's a comment box or not people will still join to ask a useless question because they demand a personal answer. Anybody who wouldn't join for one question has already lurked the thread to find the question has already been answered.

    You also have to consider the fact that if people could post, even if its just in a comments box, without the need to register or anything like that it would be incredibly difficult to manage and keep track of troublemakers. People who would jump in and troll or post things like warez links, pornography, advertising spam and so on.

    If it was added, basics like embedding URLs and images are a definite no, but still...I just can't see it being used properly...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
