    FYI: Guests will no longer be able to view more than 3 post unless they register. This should help make BHW more secure from outside people. If you receive a message telling you to register it means you got signed out and need to log back in ;)

    Well i think it will also prevent search engine bots from visiting the forum! And i guess asking to fill captcha text after every 3 posts would be better and as far as i think, it will also prevent search engine bots!

    Not good for SEO.. but then again I think you have enough traffic and members as it is.

    Good job,

    Well in phpbb we can change the permissions so i think it will be vBulletin also, you can disallow guests to see posts and allow bots ike Google to do so :)
