Exclamation Making the forums Private - Fear that EBAY sees what we post

Before I take this step and make 90% of the forums private. I want to see how you guys feel about it.

Reasons to make the forum private:
- New information to circumvent eBay and other networks will not be public.
- Membership fees will help pay for server costs.
- No unnecessary advertising.
- A more personal and safe environment.
- Added features

All current members of course will not be forced to pay any member fees. This only pertains to new members (sign up now before the forums go private).

Again the top two reasons to make the forums private is of course to keep any new information private, and to help pay for server costs.

What do you guys think?

my only problem is the fees. i came to find this forum when i was down and outed from ebay.i was broke man!! no way would i have been able to pay. i was happy to see someone giving the info out for free. i had also already bought that ezbook which was pushing the flyswatter program.

hey, if you start charging let us current members stay for free dude!!!!!!!

Drunk, how nice.

Of course I can't guarantee eBay will not be watching, I'm sure they are already. It's just the information as a whole won't be public, and less likely to be leaked out to eBay.

another marvel "what if"

aspikn, let's say you start charging. turning a financial profit from this forum. or even a member's area only forum. ebay get's in there and buys an ebay account from an "authorized ebay account seller" (no offense C just being real for aspkin's sake) ebay does a full investigation and sues them. in turn they can (i think, talk to a lawyer) sue you. you made a profit from it, right? when you make money from it it turns into a different kind of liability.


i hope i am wrong but please talk to a lawyer first.

i'm just saying it's not worth driving drunk in this day and age. bars and night clubs always (for me at least) lead to dui and fights. either way the police is involved. i would rather drink at home with people i know around me. if we get into it no big deal, crash on the couch and i'll see you tomorrow (around noon. true playas don't get out of bed till noon anyway)

As I answered with my last post you drunken *******s, I can't guarantee eBay will not be watching what you're posting and using it against you. It's a risk we all take; actually I don't see a risk at all; As long as you don't disclose your private information. EBay has nothing on you. I take the biggest risk out of everyone. Maybe making the forums private will lower that risk, maybe not. But it will help with server cost.

sorry about the being off topic aspikn. i wondered when you were going to say something about it! hey man, you should not have a drunk "mood" available if you can't handle it, or create the post so late at night/morning.


but on topic, talk to a lawyer. when you charge for the info i think it opens you up to a whole different kind of liability. charging for advertisers is one thing, charging to access the info is another

depends on your record. every time i get pulled over there is some kind of note on my record that says they have to call in an extra car before telling me to step out o the vehicle (IF they call in my info first). i did do alot of stupid sh** when i was younger. last time i was pulled over though, i was in a rental car at the border of my state at 2:30 in the morning. they just gave me a ticket and said head home. they would not, however, let me out of the car.............. there was two cops in that car anyway... so they had both sides of the car covered. one youthful mistake and they never forget!!!


i'm 6 foot even but 310 pounds baby!!! alcohol makes cowards in to idiots!!!!



OFF TOPIC AGAIN!! SORRY ASPKIN!!! LOVE YOU!!!++++BURP+++++

Yes, I agree with the private membership. But the site has to be more than just a forum. You will need to compile ALLLLLL this information into a website worth paying for. There's a ton of information here and it needs organizing. It would really be a lot of work on your part.

If it were me I would charge a monthly fee. Hell, without this site I would not be making the money I am right now. On and off of Ebay. I could see a $20 sign up fee with a $5 monthly fee. That would be fair as long as the content was more than a forum.
