Hello. I just wanted to briefly share that we have disabeled editing and site interaction for users who are not logged in and explain the reasoning behind it. At Biblicalapedia we want to teach people about the Bible, and help explain and anaylze the Bible. As we are not only a community, but a ministry interaction is essential for engagement with other believers and sharing the gospel with non-believers.
While allowing non-logged in users to add content helps collaboratively build content, it is very minimal at our wiki. Alongside of that, part of our goal is to help explain the errors of a user's edit and attribute it all back to the Bible. Users who are not signed up for an account do not have access to several features that allow for easier communications. While users originally did not need an account to post messages, it is difficult for them to be aware they have recieved a response and users who are not logged in are less likely to return and less likely to make a commitment.
Another feature that users who are not logged in do not have access to is the chatroom, which is a core place where we discuss and interact with both Christians and non-christians. Since users who are not logged in have little means of communication, it redirects from our goal and being able to engage with users who are logged in. We feel by doing this we can be more effective as a community, ministry and wiki by requiring users to be logged in who will be easier to communicate with.
