Yeah thanks I know about that. But I don't always want to comment on a post just to follow it. My post count will be false Smile

Rip, there are many ways to skin this cat and charging or keeping it an open forum is not the way.

As an example of other forums:
1: You cant add anything to the for sale section if you post count is less than 10
2: If you are not logged in you cant find or see certain sections
3: Have more stricter signing up criteria - no gmail, yahoo or web based mail addresses unless specifically authorised by the mods
3a: Have a set of pre-populated questions that a new sign on has to fill in to get his/her location etc filled in.
4: Have more mods to help with the cutting the clutter work

Agree to all of them except 3. no gmail would also mean that I would not be able to sign up and sign in. The same goes for loads of South-Africans. The pre-populated questions are a good way of sifting out spammers.

This doesn't mean that NO ONE can have a gmail, yahoo or web based address, it means that if you are an existing member with positive contributions, you can continue as such with the web based address. It also means that new people will have to get authorised by the mods if they have this type of an address.
With normal addresses, the site owners will be able to track you if you cause kak - with web based address this is not possible.

It stops spammers and people sommer registering to look see onto a closed forum as a roof kyker.

Then lock the forum to be viewed only if you are logged in. Simple.
