I suspect not. Most web advertising pays for "views", which can be
determined by the access to the remote server that the ad is on, and for
"clicks", determined if the user actually clicks on the ad.

Neither payment model has anything to do with "registered users".

I suspect the "register before viewing" is simply a default setting, and
the person setting up the forum is not familiar enough with things to
know to change it.
