    Eh? The Trading Forum is not "restricted." You just can't post in it if you have less than 100 posts. But a guest can certainly view the Trading Forum, he just can't post in it(obviously since he's a guest). If he wants to post in it he'll have to register and get 100 posts first.

    Go through the whole site, I mean, keep changing the forum numbers i got 1-22, and I got bored. [​IMG] 1,2,19,20,21,22 were deleted, no permission denied yet. [​IMG] Yes Ima spy! I will find you.
    Heh, "restricted area?" Yeah, guest are allowed in there but not us? I guess bragging rights for the to join and post. But I think sometimes you can't see it... When a guest, I think..

    Actually, yes, when you're registered member, you can't even view Trading Area unless you're exceeded 100 posts, or have been member for over 1 year!!

    And staff area is probably for staff to talk about improvements of the boards, about members, should someone be warned or banned..Stuff like that..

    Just because you can get into the staff forum it doesn't mean you can ban people [​IMG]

    Gotta get to the Admin/Supervisor forum for that [​IMG]

    Neither guests nor users with under 100 posts can access the Trading Forum, so how can there be a guest viewing it?

    Its not that they can't access, its just that it doesn't show up in the list of forums. But if you know how forums work you can easily get it.

    Really? Because I just tried logging off and accessing it, and it still gave the "you need to be a regular member with >100 posts" message.
