    When I try to view UHall (or any Stratics forum) without being logged in now, it puts me on an "Error" page, tells me "You must be logged-in to do that," and presents me with a login form.

    Is this on purpose?

    Also: When I first encountered the "Error" page, I instinctively clicked "Log in or Sign up" without thinking and, oddly, it dumped me back at the same form and again told me "You must be logged-in to do that." I have to be logged in to log in? Interesting.

    Also: Why is "logged-in" hyphenated? Makes no sense.

    This also happened to me when I was sent a link to view and it wouldn't allow me unless I was logged in, also recieved the ERROR page. This change must have happened just today, as I was able to access it without being logged in yesterday. I have noticed there are only 3 or 4 'guests' and more members using these forums now versus 150 'guests' I saw yesterday. I usually view the "Recent Activity" page and cannot access that now unless logged in; and it now says "Activity stream for all registered members at Stratics Forums.", whereas yesterday it did not say this. I'm sure this was done purposely by the administrators; perhaps they want only registered members to view the forums.

    :). Bear in mind when you're thinking of 'the adminstrators' that's mostly Syrus, Magdalene and me. We're friendly, helpful folk usually, except when dealing with unfriendly posters who persistently ignore the rules.
