Possible?

I like about bitcoin forum that you don't have to be signed in to see other posts from certain user, or to search the forum. Would this be possible?

The search tool can be certainly made open for all user classes including guests, although that normally asks for some spam prevention measure (like a captcha, or a limit in frequency of searches) to avoid abuse and server overload.

I'm not sure if I understand your other question. When you say "see other posts from certain user", you mean being able to see posts made by user X through X's profile page?

Yes indeed, I do that often when studying people but sometimes prefer not to be signed in.

The search on bitcointalk has the drawback to allow only 1 search every minute or so which can be annoying.

Being able to delete your own posts like on BTT would be great too.

What I also like about BTT is that when you edit a post you just made, it gives you much more time to edit the existing post before it shows on the bottom that it was edited uberhaupt.

I've enabled the Search feature for Guests, although keeping a verification question for spam prevention. The messages have also been fully indexed, which should improve a bit search speed and reduce server load. the minimum time between searches is now set in NxtForum to 10 seconds, which sounds reasonable.

Searching through other forums I've seen it is common practice to allow guests for a basic visit to profile pages through messages posted in the forums, so that is enabled now as well.

The courtesy time for edits after posting has been raised a little bit, from 2 to 3 minutes. Setting it higher might cause misunderstandings.

The one thing I'd rather not enable is deleting posts completely. If a member wants to take back something they wrote, they are free to modify the contents of their posts and leave them blank, or replace them with any statement. The one case where users can completely remove posts or topics is as moderators in a board, such as Nxt project boards.

Thanks so much VanBreuk.

Maybe you can allow to delete posts if you do it within 3 min as well?

I just checked out NEM forum, and WOW, that is what I was visualizing, this is the home page:

I often want to delete a post I just made, really unpractical having to ask it every time.

Maybe I'll just leave a point in it from now on.
