Not that I've noticed. Some of the board may be members only but the Handbooks certainly aren't. I'm looking at Eldariel's Barbarian Handbook right now on the Minmax Boards without any problem whatsoever.
Just to point out, I've never been a member of either BG or the Minmax Boards, I'm looking it explicitly as a Guest.
Ok, Nice to know.

You can always view the boards as a guest. However, you need to make two posts before you can see most of the boards while logged in - agreeing to the rules (which are much shorter than the ones here) and starting an intro thread. We need it to keep spambots from infesting the place again; it's not as complicated as it sounds.
Ya I just did and joined the boards.
I will be updating the links to the new location here shortly.
