Frankly, I don't care, most of it is in the public domain already anyway.

Had to think about it first i voted for making it accessible it was on my-mc, if people use it as a source of info they may come back more than once and eventually sign up?

I thought initially make people join to look at the info, but they may not know its there before they join and couldnt see it. Whereas if we let anyone see the info they may wish to join us and if they feel its right to just keep taking without joining then we probably dont want them as members but hopefully we come over as being a friendly and sharing forum.

Can I change my vote? :idea: Since we recently "signed up" another 2600 members, I guess restricting it for the sake of signing up more becomes a moot point. :lol:

Turns out you CAN change your vote!

I'd suggest that unregistered can see the link, thus what info would be avail, but for an actual download/access a certified registration is mandatory.
