Rid of the Guest name

is it possible that we can get rid of the Default 'Guest' title just so that guests dont post as guest.

Too many people call themselves one name then post as guest afterwards..

Kinda annoying IMO.

Lets call them Wallabies. Or Wallybies.

Yea, wally, what would you rather[/u] have instead of Guest? Because if you replace "Guest" with, say, Wallybie, guests will still post under that name, whatever you do.

Now, if you'd remove the guest names completely and use their IP... but then again, there's a crap load of people that don't want their IP public; and pushing people to register is also out of the question, I'm sure there's another crap load of people that don't want to register for just two posts(and personally, I'm against this as well, there's no need to hog the member counts with one-time posters)

... ALTHOUGH we could force guests to input a name before submitting posts(given that that's possible with phpBB) :)

Think Wally means remove the guest 'rank' under the name they input.

Indeed some find it funny to use that as nickname in later posts.
You have to understand Wally that for them it is a new joke, and thus extremely funny.
For us ..... :suspicious:
