I feel that this should be moved to Implemented Suggestions.

It's good to see the new administration making progress with these suggestions.

sorry but I'm not sure i get this.. why would someone create an account that would not permit him to play and/or post? it's kind of the only things you can do. And if you are not interested in forums or games, why click on it... is this for forum/game addicts desiring to put themselves in rehab?

You can already browse the forums without logging in...

Is that what you mean?

The only change that I can see that moves towards this suggestion would be to make it so that you can view game pages (and game finder and related stuff) without logging in.

That said, I am going to wager that this is just a trollish suggestion that can be closed

I'm going to go ahead and reject this as there is no reason to implement it.

EDIT: After further review, this has been reversed!

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.

It's free to make an account. I don't see the problem with doing that.

And I'm not sure that's what the OP was talking about anyway. He didn't make it real clear what his goal was.
