Cannot browse forum if logged out
« on: 06 July 2016, 22:08:08 »
I got an error after opening the General Discussion forum, saying only registered users had access to that session. Is this a bug or new rule policy?

Yep, same on my phone.

I do not think this is some new rule, most likely a bug. Hope its fixed soon, kinda hard to wake up and not be able to skim the forums in the morning.

There's no policy requiring anyone to sign in to view the forums. In fact, we have 56 guests doing that right now. There has never been any restriction on people not signed in viewing the general forums. Posting - yes, you need to sign in. But viewing - nup.

Odds are it was popbably a transient glitch - there's no forum maintenance scheduled that I'm aware of, but these things can happen.

Titania42, we're welcoming enough to respect your wishes. Are you reporting the same issue Caioaf had? Caioaf, are you still having that problem? If so, can you try clearing your cache?

I am not having the issue anymore. Didn't need to clear the cache, it simply started working again

Let us know if the issue pops up again (anyone!), I'll pop off and look around as a guest off and on today as well to make sure it doesn't happen as well.
