    Can We Block Guests on Game Days

    I remember someone asking this before. We have like 2000 guests on the site clogging it up for the 400+ members trying to discuss our beloved Patriots. Happens every game day and it's a real pain in the butt. Sorry ... just needed to vent ... perhaps some of those guests will become members and maybe even donate to the bandwidth they suck up on us. ;)

    i agree with this premise...

    maybe not block ALL geusts, but how bout putting a limit? like 500? (or however much for the site NOT to lag)

    Block them all. It was ridiculous trying to talk about the game today.

    This board is crazy slow. 50% of them probably aren't pats fans.

    we're getting infected.

    I have to agree with FBN and Mr. Biggles. The fact that the site gets mobbed with several thousand "guests" is ridiculous. It ruins the experience for everyone. If you want to be here on game day, register. It doesn't cost you anything.

    No guests and certainly no new member authorizations on game day.

    Agree. Today was ridiculous (along with a slew of unpleasant emotions)

    Re: Can We Block Guests on Game Days

    Just added a mod that limits guests to 10 thread views before being forced into logging in or registering. Hopefully that helps, and it already seems to be as it's speeding up as we speak. - Ian

    I just installed a mod where Guests are now limited to 10 views before being forced to register. It's already bumping them off and we're speeding up as we speak ;)
