Guests

I have a question about guests. I've noticed on the "Who's Online" function guests are viewing the Information desk and "Bar and Grill". I thought this was only a function for members. Any clue how this works?

Edit: Example
 
Two things cause this:

* Guests going to that board directly get a "please log in" page. It registers though as a visit to the board.

* Failed attempts by a bot to hack the board using an old rush/highlight vulnerability, using a random topic ID. The visit shows in the who's online section, even though no access was given.

To see what guests see, just log out, and see what you can and cannot access.
