Currently for a logged-out user the posting method is:
New Topic->login/registration->Accept terms->fill out forms->possible activation link->return to index page->return to forum->New Topic->type post->submit
by this point many people have probably given up.
I would like to possibly have the following flow:
New Topic->Type post->Submit->login/registration->accept terms->forms->activation link->post goes live
This gives more incentive to complete the registration because you already filled everything out.
Possible ways this could be done:
- hold posts by guests in a duplicated version of the moderation queue and have the activation link double as a release post link.
- OK, that's my only thought, sorry, not a techie.
