fao of admin and mods, just an idea to get more members for the site

when you put in  Jackpotty Forums into google, you see the following:
Warning! Only registered members are allowed to access this section. Please login below or register an account with Jackpottyforums. Login ..

and when you get into Jackpotty Forums, you then see:
WARNING!
Only registered members are allowed to access this section.
Please login below or register an account with Jackpottyforums

is there a chance it can be more friendly and maybe put the word free, so for example register for free in seconds or register an account with Jackpottyforums for free

as people may get put off by the big Warning and the emphasis on registered members or they may think there is a subscription

I'm having a little problem with this at the moment, I'm struggling with the guests permissions, everytime I open the board up to guests to view unregistered spammers somehow are able to post on the forum. I opened it just last week and within an hour a dating site spammer hit us, just a few weeks ago I opened it up and Steely had to deal with 3 or 4 spammers that's when I realised it was something to do with the board security and guests.

I'm in all night tonight so once the kids have settled I'll have another look.

im assuming potty comes up somewhere on google when looking for fruit forums, so yea, would be nice if it had a nice description on google. thats what i generally use to decide what sites i visit.

It's probably due to an older version of SMF mate, as said before, I don't mind helping or even moving the lot to the newer SMF if you want to, I'd obviously need access to a backup, then I'd set a clone of the forum up on my server and make sure the update works flawlessly on there first

Let me know if you want a hand there
PLUS EEVEE!!!!!
