Hey! I'm all for this move, But one of the main draw for me in the old place was the ability to post without registering (I loathe anything that requires accounts. The fact i made one here is a testament to the excellent work you guys did so far), something that me and many others were taking advantage of. Seeing how its a kind of small fan base, shrunk even smaller by this move, i think it would be best to enable "anonymous" posting, or at the very least make account creation trivial (as in no emails, and certainly no 8 char limits), as to keep discussions alive, and maybe more will notice that unlike on the old place, on this site they will actually get answers/help for questions they are only willing to ask if its not locked behind a login.
Either way, keep up the good work!
