S(h)ite Idea 'Expanded':
Perhaps the idea of a 'forum licence' for the public forum could be looked into, you post only where you have a licence to post !! Every licensed member could then instigate a three day ban for the member of their choosing...why not then further expand with individual 'classes' within the licence; naturally a 'spirituality forum' licence would be the cheapest...OR just make each separate forum category all the same price but one could build a collection of these licenses and people could then play chess AND collect, that sounds like genuine fun to me.
I suggest a modest price for these licenses, say $5 apiece...you pay for what you can afford, BUT each licence carries the privilege of a three day forum ban for that person of your choice. Collect them all and you can make all your banning recommendations from the forum of your choice. That person that annoys you most would be gone for at least a month of the year...and the site is 'enjoying' some added revenue...everyone's a winner !
Note: The club private forum can maintain the posting habits of members that don't pay up or are merely broke, being broke is no excuse...tell that to a copper when you have NOT licensed your car !!
I feel this 'idea' should keep all parties happy !
