Description James MacGregor 2010-08-31 11:38:31 PDT
If I enable Reader, Author and Reviewer registration options in Journal Setup Step 4.1, during registration only the Reader option is checked by default. Looking at templates/user/register.tpl, the "checked" option is set if $registerAs[X] is set; so I'm guessing only $registerAsReader is set. Is there any problem with just removing the check, so that if these options are available to the registrant they are checked by default? 

I'm trying to see if this also holds for OCS, but I just ran into Bug 5856 when attempting a registration.

Yep, holds for OCS.

One problem with this is that it risks polluting the Author and Reviewer lists with people who were too lazy to uncheck the options.
Comment 3 Alec Smecher 2010-09-21 15:09:39 PDT
Deferring for consideration. I'm not convinced the benefits would justify probable pollution of the reviewer and author lists.
