    I have questions about guest permissions: Why allow guests to view member info & in the forum viewing permissions will you still have "Music, Debate etc" closed to guests ( I think it is a good idea to keep those forums private) - maybe add this forum as well. Also in the forum viewing permissions you don't mean the guest can rate threads etc do you? They can only view such things?

    Otherwise it all sounds good

    The guest viewing permissions for the Music, Lyric, Video and Debate forums are going to remain closed. About thread rating: while guests cannot post, cannot vote, cannot give rep etc. etc. the thread rating permission is set to allow guests to rate threads. Do you think it should be for members only?

    I do think rating threads should be closed to guests, maybe if they care enough and want to rate a thread they will become members to do so. Glad to hear the private forums will remain private, I'm sure it is an incentive for guests to join.
