Permission changes
#1
I got rid of the system that required a presentation post to get promoted to newbie. Now lurkers, newbies and registered users can post wherever they want.

There were also a couple of permission issues, e.g. lurkers couldn't access bonus projects category (why hasn't anyone said anything??). I fixed those.

Are you sure that's a good idea?

I was under the impression that the whole reason for the presentation post being required, was to avoid spammers.

Won't this re-introduce the same problem again? Eyedrop

I guess while we are talking about all this, do we still need to hide the first post to people who don't register. At this point I don't think it is doing much
New, low or non-posting members: Please do not post or PM me asking where to get something or what the current status of a project is. Such requests are ignored. Instead, stick around and become a participating member. Thank you.

Nah. The last time I banned a spammer was in like, August or September. We now have much better security questions, captcha, and a couple more antispam measures.

If spammers somehow appear now, I can always go back to the old system.

If your not a registered member of fanres and/or not logged in you can't see the first post of a thread. I believe spoRv did it that way to attract more users but I don't think it's needed anymore. Just my opinion, other might think different.
