just revamp the forum to the suggestion and run it to see how it works.
free meaning, you wont have to spend any MORE money for a system you already have.
we're offering suggestions to help you make money without spending more money and instead of saying hmmm, we'll take a look at it, you try every possible way to deflate the ideas!?
if you want us to invest in a new system for you, may i suggest you show us you listen to ideas and try to make it work?
you guys are the techno guys. im just the idea guy.
i know it cant be hard to come up with a format with a counter that deletes posts automatically.
and it cant be hard to make some password that allows pre paid posters to post ads in a forum. is it?
come on guys, im trying to help you guys revive a dead forum to your benefit! (want room)
Opening up a discussion site, no matter the topic, isn't that big a deal if you have good help, and the funds to keep it going.
Opening up a site that is geared to be commercially successful, is a whole different ball game.
Pre-paid posters? Dead Forum? Deleting posts automatically?
" show us your ideas, and listen to us"?
I've had 3. Having what you call a dead forum ( rarely used ) isn't uncommon at all.
Membership was driven by word of mouth, and sponsors who supplied rotating banner HTML, and I supplied mine to them.
Moderators are responsible for deleting posts. I have never heard of a piece of software that automatically deletes posts. Right this minute, I can't think of a need for one that would be used in a commercial setting.
Pre paid posters? Are you assuming a person who was looking to purchase a product from an auction site, would be willing to pay the site owner for the privilege of being allowed to bid?
