Require Newcomers to Sign In after Reading Posts

Some sites let newcomers read message boards without going through SIGN-IN/NEW ACCOUNT (H2), but newcomers cannot post until they have registered. This approach lets people see what a community is like before joining it. Once a visitor has decided to become a community member, offer him or her PERSONALIZED CONTENT (D4), in the form of favorite message boards and favorite community members.

Other sites require newcomers to go through SIGN-IN/NEW ACCOUNT (H2) before they can even read any posts, thereby ensuring that only registered community members can read and post messages. However, this approach will turn off people who do not like to create an account before they can see what the message boards offer.
