Scott I think this is a great Idea but I think it would be much more successful if you didn't have to register. Is there anyway you can take that out?

I agree - I hate sites that require you to register to read or post messages. I searched through the configuration options and made changes that should allow anonymous posting. I'll try that in a second.

The software I'm using encourages users to register their e-mail address because some options rely on it. For example, it can be set up so a user receives an e-mail whenever someone replies to their message. However, I have most of the e-mail options off for now.

Some web site operators like to require people to provide a real e-mail address in order to post (and this software can enforce that by sending the required password only to the registered e-mail address), since this helps "weed out" troublemakers. But, I have high regard for DCSki readers and don't expect we'll run into trouble. Hopefully all discussions will be civil! :-)

So, assuming my reconfigure works, my policy is that anyone can post anonymously without registering.

Thanks,

Ok, looks like anyone can post anonymously now.

If you choose not to register, I'd recommend trying to use the same username each time you post so people know which messages you'e posted. (And bear in mind that you cannot go back and edit a message you previously posted unless you've registered.)

Thanks for the kudos!

The National Ski and Snowboard Expo is scheduled to hit the Washington, D.C. area from November 5-7. (It was in Philadelphia this past weekend.) I plan to write an article once a receive a few more details, but it will be held at the Ballston Common Mall in Arlington, VA.

You can find some more details at:

Hope that helps!

Scott,
Add my kudos to this new site and feature.
Question: Is the Ski Show (of sorts) going to be in Ballston again this year...I have seen nothing in print or on your site!?
