Would it not be useful to make most of the forum readable without logging in ?  
I'm sure that would attract more members, some people like to have a peek before they commit

God like powers  
Obviously there should still be a couple of hidden bits  

Alex perhaps your PC is set to log in automaticly, as is mine. But i'm thinking more about potential members who are in two minds about joining because they can't see what it's all about.

But wouldnt it be fair to say that some would be more likely to sign up so they can read it? Curiosity killed the cat anat

Let them have a wee bit to get them interested, and put a sticky in a bit that non members can read....saying that there are many more topics of interest for those registering....or even a topic called "If you register"..and list some of the other forum and topic headings.

letting them have general chat area is usually a good idea let them see there is other areas but have a restricted area warning for member only if they click it...
Worked at an other place i modded "dangle a carrot" it was refferred to...
get them interested with a taster...
