Over the past few months we have noticed a steady increase of guest activity on the forum, especially around event days. The number of individual guests far exceed the number of registered members. While we think it's great that forum activity is rising, we would love for more people to register an account, share their opinions with us and/or do any kind of contribution.
In an attempt to push the number of registered members we will close most sections of the forum to unregistered visitors, starting November 1st.
This means to gain full access to the forum you will need a registered account.
Depending on how this plays out we will decide whether or not this will be temporary or permanent.
Since closing most sections of the forum to unregistered visitors we have had a nice push in registrations. This is what we were essentially going for so we feel the adjustment has served its purpose. Over these past months we have done a lot of work to get the new Kakutougi off the ground and with this little push we are confident in having reached a solid base that is able to grow 'organically' over time.
This means we are re-opening all sections of the forum to all visitors.
Thanks to all you guys for your continued support!
