In most instances you don’t need to log-in. You can freely browse through the entire website without ever having to log-in at all. However, there are a couple of specific instances where being logged-in is necessary:
- To change your account info – like your email address
- To add content to the site – like a news update or event
- To add a comment
- To access certain information which is reserved for villagers only
In these instance you must log-in.
NB: At the time of writing, there are currently no pages on the site reserved for villagers only – so unless you wish to add a news story/event or change your email address, you never need to log-in.
