Most specifically, right at the moment "Transformation" who posted just half an hour ago for his approval was perusing the One-on-One Roleplay Requests board. I noticed because his icon is black, as opposed to colors and when I clicked on him, it revealed he had posted only once, his introduction.

I'm not trying to get him in trouble or anything. I'm just saying that if new members can see the whole site now for some reason, that might be a problem.

Unapproved members can read those boards at any time, but they cannot post in them.

Out of curiousity, can those same boards be accessed from links on Google search results where the person in question hasn't applied to be a member?

From my experience, there's a "you are not approved" message when links are given to approved only areas. I'm not sure it you can Google anything from the approved area.... will check and get back to you. 

Edit: just Googled my user name and a story and the only things that popped up were unrestricted areas. :)

Everything in the private area is Google proof.

The entire left-most column can be seen by google and unapproved members, though signatures can only be seen by approved members, so if there is a link to another part of the board in it, only approved members can see and click on them.

Except for the Non-Forum Roleplay Requests board, which I believe can only be seen by approved members as well.

Yes, those are only visible to approved members. ~nodnod~ Because people often post their offsite contact information (aka IM) there.

The entire left can been seen by guests too. :). Just log out and you are looking at the 'unapproved member' board.
