I know it's easy to accidentally post as Guest, such as when the forum has logged you off or you forget to login. To help prevent this, a JavaScript confirmation dialog will now appear when a Guest posts and leaves the username field blank. Here's what it says:

You left the username field blank.
Press OK to post anonymously.
Press CANCEL to go back and type a nickname.

Here is the crude German version (perhaps a German speaker could provide a better translation, including a translation for the JavaScript's German "Cancel" button):

Sie ließen das benutzername.
Betätigen Sie sich OK, um anonym bekanntzugeben.
Betätigen Sie CANCEL, um ein benutzername zu schreiben.

Thanks.

Looks like a good solution (like when Thunderbird warns when the subject line is empty). If we want to log in, we cancel, copy the message, log in, reply, paste the message...

I would translate it to:

Sie haben den Benutzernamen vergessen.
"OK" um anonym zu posten.
"Abbrechen" um einen Benutzernamen anzugeben.

I've tested the changes within the german forum. Looks good and works great :D

Let's hope it reduces the amount of "guest" postings. :mrgreen:

Yeah, it's a pity the forum doesn't remember what topic I was reading when I decide I should log in.
