I wonder if having locked boards is detrimental to gaining new membership on a general discussion board?

Anyhow, In your case Id suggest letting them know that they should not be afraid of locked boards and tell them know the reasons its locked.... ie: member security etc.

Also it might be worth mentioning that that you dont allow any cliques etc... just a friendly bunch of people... something like that.

Good luck with it.

Tony

My personal view is that its cluttered.

I'd suggest using bold for the questions and regular for the answers.

I'd also suggest doing a graphic advert for the "Get rid of the Ad's" instead of filling it up with text.
