Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.
Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.
Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?
One minor thing that irks me (but that I don't really hate), though: Site names in the form of (pokemon)'s (place), where (pokemon) is usually a legendary and (place) is either a generic landscape like island, forest, or lake or "Place" or "Page".

If you can’t use the right content type in the header then you shouldn’t attempt to use the XHTML MIME type at all. When the headers say text/html, user agents will treat the page as HTML—no meta tag will change that.It isn't always possible to add "content-type: application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8" to the headers. The alternative requires one to either restart the server or slow it down more than necessary.

I hate seeing a website lacking any organisation. When I go to a website, I like seeing a neat homepage showing what the site is about or some announcements. Then, I like to see the links in a handy little row or column, so the site is easy to navigate. I don't want to see some jumbled up mess of tables with a busy background and unreadable text, with images spewed everywhere. I also hate it when I go to a webpage and it starts opening blank pages in new tabs! And it just keeps going until I close the internet.
