Forum Subscription Removal
« on: January 23, 2014, 07:46:36 AM »
All forum members please contribute to help me take the right decision. we have made this forum paid only because 99 % members are not contributing into forum and we wanted all inactive members to pay some amount as contribution towards forum's expense. we are not earning enough subscription and i am paying from my pocket only till now. so i am thinking of removing subscription from our forum and make it open for everybody to access. let me know your views please.

Voted yes with some reservation. In my view all new members who is using this opportunity should contribute at least 30 meaningful posts per three months. Meaningful posts means not only clips and pictures but may be some useful comments instead of just saying thanks,tks, smiley etc. Also this 30 posts can't be in a single day or two. This rule should not be applicable for our existing members as they were instrumental in building the forum as it is today. They may be few exceptions.

This is my personal view only.Any divergent views  are welcome.

Dear brothers,

Meaningful posts must mean something like a pic or a video or a story (real story). Just saying "wow, nice post" should not qualify. I think we need contributors and not only appreciators.
as s10dulkar bro said, most of the people are not contributing and just watching the fun. Once in a while they just appreciate and then disappear. Such members need to be terminated.

Bro I feel people should contribute by choice not by force some may not agree with me but we cant force people to contribute trust me when my page had 25000+ likes and i made announcement that i need contributors and moderators only 5 came and joined me and were ready to spend time on page, so U remove the subscription or make any rule only those people who enjoy contributing will contribute rest will not

yes i too believe that people should either contribute some meaningful stuff or pay some nominal fee...every good thing in life comes with price tag  ;)


moreover be there 200 members or 20000 , but if only handful will contribute then whats the use of the large community...infact people needs to be lot more cautious while posting when there is a very large group............


purely my views and I know could be debatable

Agree..on contributing posts...mainly videos,, people can give a start by contributing pics first and then move on to videos. But I think it could be achievable if there is any kind of motivation behind it. E.g keeping  a  reward like top contributor of the week!!! This week's top trampling post etc...
By this people who are  contributing will always try to give their best and would bring new bies in order.

There should be point based on posts eg..  private videos posted ,,like sessions could be give very good score..
 rare videos could be given next best score...
re-post no score...

Again this is just my personnel opinion...Thanks guys

I agree with what PSB bro said... we cant force people to contribute that's not going to work but you can certainly ensure their visits are useful for you in someway (more page cliicks/ads)


Is my idea too bad? can we look at having some banners/ads for S10ulkar bro to run this without spending from his pocket?


and its difficult to get these people to do this because they just dont have the knack for it or the inclination for it... I am sorry, i feel our current pool of contributors should be encouraged because they are the ones who make this forum.


The only suggestion I have is to create some rewarding system for those active contributors at the expense of those simply click and watch (by making them pay to see that post and a % going to the contributer) THis way they are also encouraged to contribute. Not sure if its practical!



Bro I feel people should contribute by choice not by force some may not agree with me but we cant force people to contribute trust me when my page had 25000+ likes and i made announcement that i need contributors and moderators only 5 came and joined me and were ready to spend time on page, so U remove the subscription or make any rule only those people who enjoy contributing will contribute rest will not

thanks a lot everybody for your views. banner ads not possible in adult forum's and google considers our forum adult some how. another view about reward system i can only say i hardly get enough time to do all this stuff. we have hired one web developer before and i was paying him 100 dollars a month to do all this feature addition and all but now i have limited budget as i am married so i cant afford 100 dollars a month for that. and thats right that just increasing number of members doesnt make any difference as we are not allowed to post ads on forum. i was just thinking to make forum open because i am thinking there must be lots of contributor nature members we might get who is not able to do payment right now. and may be we will get 50 thousand non contributing free members but we might get 50 contributing member also if we make forum free. thats the only thing i am taking as positive if we make forum open to all.

please leave your views

another option i have in my mind is we can make this forum invitation only. means any existing member can invite new members. registration will be manually done by me for now. may be i can hire some one to develop the automatic system for it . and all members will get invitations based on their performance. they can sell it if they want. what you think guys ?

I agree with S10dulakar's view to open up. If we see majority of other forum's too are open / free. It attracts lots of members.

It is not an independent forum at all.  They will do whatever is needed to keep advertisers happy, and that includes so-called "reviews" that whitewash or ignore problems that a customer might want to know about.
