Selective 'Include name in list of event attendees' by default 
We use WA for our club members to register for our weekly meetings. I occasionally hear complaints about how many clicks it takes to register. One member asked if I could make the checkbox that says "Include name in list of event attendees" default to selected. I told him the software does not allow me to do that.
How about in the Event Details page if there were a way to indicate whether the checkbox for "Include name in list of event attendees" would default to selected or not.
UPDATE FROM KERNEL APRICOT (JUL 2013): while the question is being analysed / discussed (and this can take a lot of time), I suggest using thus JS script workaround http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8834812-set-attendee-list-opt-in-to-yes-by-default (the script will change the checkbox into selected state be default)
Released in 5.1
We would also prefer the default to be on or at least make it more obvious.
Over Labor Day weekend we held an event with about registered 90 participants. It appears many missed or did not understand the option as we received a lot of questions as to why their name was not listed.
We do prefer the default on. However it would be even better if we could restrict viewing of the attendee list to members only. Our members want to see what other members are participating, but we don't necessarily want to advertise the entire list for our overnight events, since we are in essence providing a public list of people who will not be home during that time. So if development is going to be done to change how this option works on event registration, could it be changed so that a member must be logged in to be able to see the list?

The reason we were reluctant to do this is a potential privacy issue - we thought that people should explicitly opt-in to have their name shown.
I would appreciate comments from other users.
