This has the following impacts:
- Guests can read all posts.
- Only registered users can write new posts.
- Registration does no longer be activated by administrator but requires personal email confirmation.
- Real names and academic titles where not migrated. New users or already registered users can maintain this information in their profile but should be aware of the fact that the forums are now available to the public.
- Inactive users with zero posts have been removed from the database but may of course register again.
