I was wondering what happened.  It was getting depressing on here.

The same constant regurgitated youth hockey league rhetoric became both annoyingly repetitious and served no purpose with continuous posting of the same content except worded differently. Guests, (the same original posters) were taking advantage of double, triple, quadruple posting the same content over and over which buried other content, so we closed guest posting.

If you have something to say, register. You can say it with one account instead of saying it 5 times as a guest starting 5 differently worded threads with the same subject. Most if not all of you are adults who act like 2 year olds.

I was at a showcase this weekend. Talked to other team parents, around 30 people. All are upset at Youth Hockey Info & won't sign up. The hockey world is a small community where everyone knows everyone and you see the same people year to year. No one wants to reveal who they are while posting. People want a place to vent anonymously without fear of getting punched by a crazy hockey parent. Everyone knows what I am talking about, as there are 1-2 on every team! I think this was a mistake by Youth Hockey Info and your site will get less traffic.

It wasn't a mistake, but we can appreciate your concern.
Registration was turned on to turn off the incessant posting of the same subject matter. It has nothing to do with yours or anybody else's anonymity. You're still anonymous by making up a username and whatever email address you choose to use in conjunction with it.

Doing so stops certain individuals from acting like 5 different people when they create and reply to their own posts.

It allows the moderation team to remove the same posts that one individual constantly repeats and acts like somebody else under the guise of "guest" posting, ie. They post something that concerns them and then immediately respond to their own post by acting like somebody else to provoke others to comment. If you register with multiple accounts and attempt to make a new post and respond to yourself as multiple registered users, we'll know and we will eliminate all other accounts besides the originally registered account.

It's a waste of bandwidth and our time cleaning it up.

Finally someone besides me posted something. Still think it was a mistake by site to ban anonymous posts. I wonder if your site hits are down because of this?

Site hits are not down, there are so many other levels to this site than the community boards.

If people want to post they are free to do so, but they will have to post as registered members. This way if you or any other member wants to register as 5 different aliases, we can combine them to stop multi-posting the same nonsense over and over again as a guest. All guest posting does is enable one person to post a message and then reply to themself over and over acting like different people responding. It's pointless, and a waste of our time cleaning up the messes made constantly.
