    I discovered from here that anonymous posting to the nForum had been switched off back in 2013. It has been requested several times over the past months that we should allow anonymous posting to the nForum, since it is allowed on the nLab. Thus I have now switched anonymous posting back on for the most commonly used categories.

    I have also removed admin rights from the ’mathforge admin’ account, since those who had the password to it are not involved with the admin/development of the nLab currently. Adeel still has admin rights. I gave myself the rights temporarily to switch on anonymous posting, but have removed them again, because I find the user interface too cluttered!

    By the way, if any of the other of you would like an admin account, so that spam can be deleted, etc, let me know. You could have a separate one from your main account, if you too find the UI too cluttered.

  1. By the way, the instructions for guest posting are a bit overpowering to my eyes. I was thinking of making them the same size and weight as those further down about linking, etc. Do people agree, or have a better suggestion?

    Sorry, say again which text are you looking at?

    If one is not signed in, one sees the following message at the top of the ’Add your comments’ panel, in what to me is rather overpoweringly large and bold text!

    Please log in or leave your comment as a “guest post”. If commenting as a “guest”, please include your name in the message as a courtesy. Note: only certain categories allow guest posts.

    Yeah, I think it’s probably an accident that that text is in the same color/weight as the labels on the text boxes “Username”, “Password”, etc. Maybe make it a bit smaller and put it in in a differently-colored box so that people will read it?

  2. OK, I’ll look into fixing it when I get the chance.
