What does the designation "Guest" mean?   I often see it on someone's profile in a discussion or a post. There's never any other details about that member.

I believe it is one of two things.   Either a person who either is a member, or not, who visits the site and has a read of some of the sections (not all sections are visible by any means without signing in and then, some are hidden to newbies for awhile as the FAQ states), or, a google bot.  No alarm.

I didn't realise that parts of the site and the forum were visible to the general public without signing up! How do we know which parts they are?

Simple way is to just logout and see what you can see. Any of the areas that normally have permission or areas like the Gallery or certain sections of the forums that go into deeper talks or that people will share pictures are locked to users as well.

Also, many of the guest comments you'll see also use to be members that have left for whatever reason and it was deemed no reason to actually delete the comments themselves.

That makes sense. Thank you.
