  • I charge $2.50/month for membership...

    Do you think it's a good idea? Did you try this before? Do you think that the price is too high or too low? Do you know any other board that charges for membership other than SA? If so, how much?

    Good God It's hard enough to get members to your board when you don't charge anything. I hate to see how hard it would be when you charge people lol

    I would re-think that idea real hard
    Good Luck

      I pity anyone who would even consider paying to be a member on your board. Actually...I pity anyone who wants to be a member for free as well.

      To answer your questions: Horrible idea.

          You might find it hard to believe but I have too much traffic and I want my board to stop growing.

            Then close registration. That will stop it from growing.

                  Charging for a board is okay in my opinion, as long as it covers for your site, and your site is a source of content, something like MSDN.

                  If it's just a board with a small vbPortal page or something, then it's not worth it, but if you've got an online knowledge base with some good articles and reviews, then sure, go ahead and charge!

                    ign.com makes people pay to post at their forums, but they also give out other stuff in the package for gaming info. they got hundreds of thousands of users, but of course they get over million of hits a week O-o

                              You do not know the history of Strike and the kinds of threads he starts.
