I've made all forums outside the "public forums" category list registered required (except for the event/suggestion forums)
    i've noticed quite a few times folks are having problems because a "public" permissions forum reply/post doesn't ask for your name/password, and one ends up with an uneditable "guest" post.
you've noticed i've usually tried to report who that was and or edit major typos...in most cases. i'm not going to correct a simple typo when the gist was obvious. *g* (i don't even do that to my posts if it's banal)

you'll also notice that if you aren't logged in much of the forums are "hidden"...this is to make the forums less intimidating to guests. (and will also help to let one know when one isn't logged in)
    which is a moot point for those who've discovered there's two alternative forum templates to choose from now, though i'm leaving the default in place until such time as we vote another one in
