guests can view og account threads which I don't think they should bc mojang staff be lurkin
this was already denied as its pointless, because nothing can stop mojang from making an account
This user has been banned for: Ban evading (Manchild)
It's just safer in general, people that aren't registered shouldn't need to view the forums
If they wanted to lurk, there is nothing stopping them for creating an account and doing so.
For all you I could be working for Mojang and reporting OG's. No one would ever know
Considering how much of our traffic comes from guests googling "Og account <name>", or other minecraft account related searches, disallowing them access to these forums unless they're registered is certain to impede on our growth significantly.
I don't support the account sales business, but if it's going to be here, it'd rather it be benefitting our site's growth as much as it can.
The results of privatizing these forums would be far more severe than the issues it would resolve.
If you're that concerned, I'd do what most people do and just replace part of the name with Stars. 'Ca*t' for example. Ask people to contact you on skype and give out the full name, or PM if you're comfortable with that.
Lol if that's your reasoning, that's pretty much invalid with the starring out of names now.
This sums it up pretty well
Thanks for the bug report (even though it was more of a suggestion!)
