Default Thinking of..

Setting up a promotion where after so many posts a person has free access to the forum, no more subscriber fees.

I think 100 posts is good.

If you have 100 posts in the forum, you're set.

What do you guys think?

Not a bad idea...
BUT
You will get the people who will post 101 times with nothing but "HELLO"
Some dumb stuff...
Just like they do to get past the post requirement so that they can post in "Buy, Sell or Trade"
It will help but it would also hurt...

My 2 cents

Can you set a time duration along with the post count?
100 post in 3 days.... no good
BUT
100 post in hmumm..... 1 week 10 days?.... good?

See where I am going??

imo, it would need to be longer than that if at all. We have a lot of 5 post wonders who get help with replies from users here that take their knowledge and run. How many posters have there been that disappear when they are up and running? (No problem with that per se) but will be back free if there are more changes in ebay/paypal. The core of users that go out of their way to help newbies merit recognition. Free access might be better for them. Just my two cents worth.

Right, and the reason for suggesting it.

There can be a time limit as well. I think two months would be good.

So is 100 posts good, plus something like two months minimum registered?

If I post 101 times with semi quality posts, just quality enough to get under the radar-Will you leave it a few days then close me down for 30 days for Post Count Manipulation?
That would be ironic

Hmmm, seems too easy for "outsiders" to have access to information. <scratches head>

If it's too easy, it can always be set higher. Lots of members have far over 100 posts.

Lol... you buy cheap ebooks here, you'll get slapped.

No, what I mean is... if you post like...

Thanks, that's great..
That's a great post, thank you.

Etc.. small, no help posts

And you do this a lot just to increase your post count, then yeah that would call for being slapped.

Spam is easily found.

You might also consider throwing in a "thanks" requirement. Say 100 posts and 5 thanks to gain free access. That might be a better judge of the quality of the 100 posts.

Okay, it's set.

To become an Executive [VIP] member you must have:
  • 150 QUALITY Posts
  • Been registered to the forum a minimum of three months
  • And you must first be a Subscribed member
That's it.

The system will auto upgrade member profiles.

The benefits of being an Executive VIP member is free unlimited access to the forum forever, and I'm sure I'll think of something else later on.

Maybe a private section just for executive members.

*checks off 'setup new usergroup' on to-do list
