Private mean SO little these days. Sure they will register, but then they will leech your links. Either safelink the links to the newbies who have been registered, but not donators, for only a could of weeks use safelinks, or make the registered only reply to see the links, that way you can at least get their IPs. If you don't...then the leeches will come and your links will be everywhere and therefore deleted in a jiffy. Only other way that I can see is to charge a small membership fee to the members who are not donators. Registering means *nothing*! Not if registering only will give one *all* privileges to openly see your links.

I would do a paypal subscription fee or something similar, enough of one to keep casual leechers away.

A paypal subscription sounds like an easy option.

This site will be kept alive as long as Im around. No need for a subscription. If I make one then very few people will come here because they can get the same things in W-BB for free.

But Im thinking about making this site registrations limited. Like only members I choose can register. Hide everything from Guests. I need to think about this harder.

Start getting spam - get out the "ban" tool by IP in the Crl Panel! :P

I think private is good, but youll still get unwanted registers.
I wouldnt go the subscription way, as itll cause many more problems for you though.

Limiting those that maybe post here alot, thanking you or talking, and wbb might be a better option? then you can see they have a history.

The only thing with making this board private is that the w*******s at W-BB will more than likely ban you again for advertising a site that people cannot join.

ie. You will have to remove any reference to this site from W-BB.

By Private I meant "Hidden forum for Guests, Open for Reg Users"
I understand what you are saying. Believe me, they tried to ban me for more simple reason.

Thanks

As long as I still have access to these great posts, anything is fine.

I think from memory there is some rule about not being able to post links to other forums on W-BB that you have to join to be able to see the links.
I wasn't trying to put you off or anything, just wanted you to be aware of it before deciding anything ;)

I think we all know how petty that board can be at times, when it is up and running that is, lol.

Many thanks for your links anyway :)
