"All Visitors" vs "Members Only"

    On the Privacy page I can set who I receive conversations from etc.

    The "People you follow" option is self-explanatory.

    But what's the difference between the other two?

    At first I thought "Members Only" meant registered users, while "All Visitors" meant everyone, including unregistered users. But I don't see a way for unregistered users to start a conversation anyway (even when I have this setting on "All Visitors").

    Members Only = people who have registered
    All Visitors = people who have registered + guests

    Can guests actually start a conversation with me? [​IMG]

    No, but unconfirmed members share the same permissions so they would be able to.

    Edit: Except I've just tested it and it doesn't work so I think that's a bug as I can do everything else as an unconfirmed member.

    Unconfirmed members are not part of "Members Only"?

    I just tested it. Unconfirmed users can't create personal conversations either. They are treated like guests.

    So there does not seem to be any difference between "All Visitors" And "Members Only" when I need to select who can start a conversation with me. Is that correct?

    (I'm doing translating and preparing some sort of guide. Just by going through the phrases, I can feel that there is a lot of work behind this forum.)

    Just to follow up on my earlier post, Mike/Kier confirmed that prohibiting unconfirmed members from starting PMs is intentional.
    It's partially to do with anti-spam measures.

    That's perfectly understandable. It was a little confusing to see all 3 options, when two of these seem to be the same (for this setting anyway).
