    What do you think about having a special type of quote block that is only visible to members? It could behave like images and / or signatures do now. Generous people sometimes post one-time use codes to the site. If people had to register in order to see them, I'm hoping this would encourage them to post a "thanks, used it" message.

    I agree - great idea - although with this I never would have known about (and joined) this forum.

    I would like it to be selective. Problem then is you rely on the poster to use it. I would not want to totally hide MP.

    I will add this to the master list of suggestions to be considered.

    I concur that it's a great idea, and it's common practice in a lot of large online communities, having the carrot that you dangle to entice lurkers to register. :)

    I've seen places where you can't view images / download attachments and even where you get to see a preview of a thread -- say 10-20 posts or the first page or whatever.

    I agree. I wouldn't want it to get used on entire posts.

    Thanks!

    There is other information (e.g., Tricks) that people are happy to share, but may not want to share publicly to both members and non-members. There's some rationale for permitting this "hidden" feature to be applied to entire posts or even certain threads.

    Note that this is different from things like the Coupon Connection on FT that requires a certain minimum number of posts, or the FT Trick It thread that has nearly 10,000 posts in it making it freely accessible but intimidating. I'm just saying that a person should have to register as a basic member before having access to a few key things.

    So, like a "[hidden]" tag to enclose text that only appears when logged in? Interesting idea.
