Hi Grant. Yes, this will be an option that you as an admin can turn on or off.

This option only makes sense for Public communities. How admin can manage the messages section?
In Admin Panel> Portal Settings> Messages you can define Welcome Message, Signup rules, Question intro, User intro, Topic intro, and User Terms and Conditions.
- Welcome message is the message that will be displayed on top of your home page, if a user is not logged in. In the picture below, you see the Welcome message defined as "Join the community of community managers":
- Signup rules message will be displayed under the Sign Up box:
- Question intro, User intro, and Topic intro are the messages that will be displayed when a person is not logged in, and he/she clicks on a question, or a topic, or a user profile. It reminds the external visitors to log in/sign up to access your community.
- User Terms and Conditions is a message that appears on the sign-up page. By adding a message to this section, a check box will be added to the sign-up page and by clicking on the check box, your members are agreed to your Terms and Conditions (T&Cs). You can put a message like "By clicking on the check box, you are agreed to our T&Cs). You can attach a link of your T&Cs page to the message as well, so users can click on it and read it before clicking on the check box.
