    I sure would like & appreciate the option of setting my own profile page to PRIVATE.
    Hmmm, I like that idea too.

    I just checked out my vBulletin forum Admin panel..
    I have found a paid subscription section already integrated into the forum software.
    I was not able to find any option to make a profile private, however , there is an option to create a new (hidden) group and only allow access to approved members. However, your profile would still be public but without any reference to the posts made in the hidden group..

    I must admit that I would love there to be a section for adults only, and no, I'm not being rude. Don't be naughty.

    I understand fully where AF is coming from with her comments earlier in this thread, and do not find it enjoyable to communicate with much younger members who are not yet adults.

    Can this be something that could ever be done, or not???

    If we get rid of all the trolls - what would we do for entertainment on Friday night?

    Aussie Floyd, if you go onto User CP, then Options, there is actually a section where you can set who can send you PMs or post visitor messages on your profile.

    Another forum I'm on has an Adults Only section. Works well. From memory I think you have to be over 18.

    It also has an invitation only VIP section. Although I'm one of the VIPs I consider it a rather elitist area and seldom post there. There is only one really interesting thread at present which I've been following for six months. Most of the other VIP posts are usually pretty boring.

    Like all the forums I'm on it is free. However there is the option to donate to help with running costs.

    In the early days of the internet there were a lot of forums with membership fees. They are few and far between nowadays because there are so many free alternatives out there in internet land.

    Membership fees would certainly eliminate all the people who join and never post but I believe it would also turn away many worthwhile new members. Certainly more than a few existing members would probably leave.

    One final question. How would you go about banning a paid up member? For example is the Troll who was fed for 23 pages last night had paid a membership fee, how could you get rid of him?
