    Kind of... suggestion... thing

    Not much to say, just IMO there should be a forum that's members-only... as in guests or members with less than X posts can't see. Maybe for some things like the post your pic thread, so that more people will feel comfortable posting there, knowing that no random serial killer or something can come a long and find out about them or something. I dunno... maybe it's a bad idea.

    I can see where you are going with this. A member only forum could work. We want to avoid making people with high post counts look better then everybody else though.

    Our time on this planet is precious, and can be snuffed out at any moment. Every second of every day should mean something.

    Well, i only mentioned the post thing because somebody could just register, not post, then leave (if they knew the forum existed). we could make it like say 5-10 posts, then let them in... i didn't mean like... 100 or 200 posts

    It's a good idea....maybe you could do it by when people joined instead of post count...or a combination of the two - if someone's posting regularly let 'em in as opposed to people who just come on once in a while.

    Hmm.. I originally thought why don't you jsut send people a PM if you want to write something personal but now I understand what you mean. I think it's quite a good idea, as you said it'd make it better because random people wouldn't be able to read more personal things.
    That which you manifest is before you.

    We should bear in mind that everyone has control over what they post in this forum. If there's some information of a private nature that they want to share with certain members of the forum then they should contact them directly, and avoid posting it where everyone can see. Even a high post count is not evidence that a person is trustworthy, which is all the more reason not to disclose more personal information on a forum than you are comfortable with everyone knowing.

    @Woes: I see your point, but it'd discourage just random people who have absolutely no plan on posting at all... and it'd also save us from malicious spiders.

    @TakaTiger: We wouldn't use it for everything. It'd be the one place they can't see until they join and post a couple times.

    And everybody else, I wasn't suggesting that if we do it by post counts it should be like... 100 or so posts. I meant 2~5 posts or something. It wouldn't look good for us to restrict members with under 50 or 100 posts. It doesn't take long to post twice, but I didn't get over 100 posts for my first couple weeks here.

    So, you don't want person X to see certain posts/threads, but if person X joins, then it's fine?

    Sorry, but I just don't really see the point.

    Actually...

    I don't want person X to see certain posts/threads, but if person X joins and posts a couple (maybe 3 to 5) times, then it's fine.

    Most of the time, person X will be too lazy or not realize.

    It doesn't really matter that much, they can still get to it if they really want to, but it'll deter the lazy & stupid ones.

    A semi-private forum sounds like a nice idea. It looks like some people want to post some personal messages in the member's only forum.

    Im in for the idea too.. And I think people should?ve posted more than 100 post to join. Think about it, if person X is in the rp for example, it doesn?t take many days to reach 100 posts..
