It would be nice to see games without an account needed. That is how I got hooked on CC. I saw a friend playing CC. The rest is history.

If this is what the OP is talking about, the post was worded poorly.

I'd be open to making games viewable when logged out. It may even draw people in (as they can look around before they have to sign up).

So you could just go in and play games while playing from some sort of "guest" account or something? That sounds like a terrible idea.

I'm interested in details, as well. Saxitoxin, currently, members can view the forums while not logged in. They cannot view games.

Are you asking for view-only access, or beyond?

Not to play. Just to look @ games (and maps! One of the BIG selling points of the site!)
Hard to tell from the tiny maps the home page scrolls thru exactly how many and the variety of our maps contains. And you can't view ongoing games or how it all works until an account.

There was a recent situation in which someone who was giving free advertising for CC couldn't get any good screenshots, and ended up making CC look a lot worse then they could have.

In this case I'm completely reversing my earlier decision.

Back to the main forum.

That's why I initially rejected it, but he has a point.

However, the idea of being able to view games/maps without being able to play to sort of "preview" the site, is something that I think might benefit the site. ;) Thus if he was truly joking, then something perhaps meaningful has come out of his joke. :lol:
